The community largely expressed a desire for the hall to accommodate bigger events, and noted that the existing hall is too crowded during some events. There is a desire for an improved kitchen.
Respondents told us that they would like to see more classes such as art, language, music, food, cooking; and more activities such as games and sports like table tennis. The hall should also provide a space for more Lendrum users like our seniors and youth.
A desire for more appropriate windows and spaces that connect well between indoor and outdoor activities. A visual connection to volleyball, playground, spray deck and fields, with a possibility of rooftop deck are to be explored.
The hall is not as inclusive as it could be for all users as the washrooms are small and not universally accessible. The entrance is small and does not provide ease of access, especially during winter.
A desire for better comfort, climate control, energy efficiency, lighting, aesthetics and environment. The current hall was cited as feeling cold or with fluctuating temperatures, with a lack of windows and natural light that could help the hall feel more inviting.
The timeline to deliver an updated community hall depends on the scope of project the community decides to undertake, the potential to secure grant funding, and the commitment of our wonderful community members
