Stonham Aspal Village Hall is among the finalists battling for a slice of a £100,000 regeneration prize.
The project has been shortlisted in the Jewson Building Better Communities Competition, and the village hall’s committee are urging residents to votes for the project online.
Tracy-Ann Hall, representing the project, said: “To have been nominated and shortlisted is a great achievement, but it’s important people get behind the project and vote so we can secure funds to do vital work in the community.
“The village hall has always been a village focal point but since we lost our pub it’s now even more important.
“We want our village hall to be a warm and welcoming place for the whole community - for all ages and interests.
“Securing this funding would allow us to carry out essential works to modernise and safeguard the building for the future and help put the heart back into our village.”
David Fenton, Marketing Director at Jewson, said: “Throughout our 179 year history, we’ve played an active part on the communities on which we operate, but with Building Better Communities we’re taking that a step further by giving local people the support they need to make a genuine difference to where they live.
“Now the shortlist has been decided, residents within Mid Suffolk must get behind projects in order for them to win a share of the prize, helping to improve the community.”
