Selco donates materials for village hall restoration

April 5th, 2024
Selco donates to Osbaldwick Village Hall

We have donated £5,000 worth of materials to assist with the redevelopment of Osbaldwick Village Hall.

Our York branch has provided the products to Osbaldwick Parish Council, which is currently refurbishing the former Methodist Chapel.

The building, which dates back to 1871, is undergoing renovation works, with internal structural repairs, new toilets and kitchen facilities and updates to the building’s insulation, electrics and plumbing.

In addition, the building will benefit from a two-story extension to include a staircase to a mezzanine floor in the original building.

Osbaldwick and Derwent Ward Councillor Mark Warters said: “Selco have been fantastic since the start of the project. The donation of £5,000 worth of products has been a massive help and we wouldn’t have been able to have made the progress we have achieved without their support.

“We are really grateful to the backing we have received from the team at the York branch, who have been extremely helpful. The branch management team and staff have been on hand throughout the project with prompt deliveries, competitive pricing and advice.

“The building has been empathetically restored and extended, providing a much-needed community space for local residents.”

The hall, which has been closed since August 2022, will re-open in April. The revamped space will be a vibrant new hub for community activities and meetings.

Aaron Matthews, branch manager of Selco York on Osbaldwick Link Road, said: “It’s important for us to work closely with the communities we are based in, and we’ve seen what a fantastic project the restoration of Osbaldwick Village Hall is.

“The hall has been a central part of the community for more than 150 years, so it is great to see it being restored and refurbished so it can continue to flourish for many years to come.

“We’re looking forward to seeing the final results of the work next month and have been proud to play a small part in the restoration.”
