After 50 years Saundersfoot’s much loved and well used Regency Hall had reached a stage where it was no longer fit for purpose. The Regency Hall Management Committee took the decision to demolish the old hall and replace it with a new building on the same site. The enormous task of raising the £1,4000.000 needed for the project began. With the securing of a £500.000 grant from the Big Lottery and substantial grants from The Welsh Government, PLANED, Pembrokeshire County Council and Sustainable Development Fund from Pembrokeshire Coast National Park Authority, plus numerous smaller grants and donations, together with the proceeds from the Committee’s own fundraising efforts meant we could put our plans into action.
After much consultation, the new Regency Hall, designed by architects James and Nicholas, is an environmentally friendly, multi use Community Centre with state of the art facilities. The building will be officially opened on Friday 27th September (further details to be announced) but will be partially in use from the beginning of the month.
