Probably the first opportunity for a proper community get-together post-Covid, Downham Village Hall Committee and Greendale View Kitchen are putting on a fundraiser on Saturday 25th September from 6.00 p.m.

Tickets will be £10 for pizza and a drink, with a pay bar after that. There will be a raffle with some really excellent prizes. Please come along and support the Village Hall’s renovation project – prices for necessary materials have really gone up during the pandemic and we are urgently looking around for more funding. Email: to reserve your places.

These will be limited, so it will be first come, first served for what promises to be a fantastic evening. If you would like to donate any raffle prizes, email: OA

Downham Village Hall has launched an appeal for funds to help towards its post-covid future.  The news that it needs a major refurbishment before it can re-open as a popular arts, entertainment and local events venue came as a shock to the small rural communities of Downham and Twiston in the Ribble Valley. The Hall needs to be completely rewired, a number of health and safety, fire and disabled access issues addressed and much of the roof replaced and, at an estimated cost of nearly £80,000.

The good news is that the refurbishment project has recently been offered significant grant aid, with the Lancashire Environment Partnership awarding a Main Grant of £30,000, the Duchy of Lancaster Benevolent Fund committing £5,000 and Ribble Valley Borough Council has allocated £3,300 from its Recreation and Culture Grant scheme.

A pack of eight Greetings Cards featuring a beautiful image of Downham is available for people who love Downham to buy at £5.00 (+ p&p) to help with the fundraising effort. They have been produced by Caroline Assheton, a professional artist who lives in the village and will be on sale from Downham’s Ice Cream shop and Greendale View Kitchen or via email:  This email address is being protected from spambots.
