Kitchen Renovation Project

Our kitchen has been transformed!

Kitchen Rennovation Project

The kitchen in the hall at St Mark’s church was over 30 years old and in desperate need of updating. Our project was to remove the existing kitchen and extend it to create a larger area with modern and hygienic facilities for the immediate benefit of our community and for many years to come.

We visited local church kitchens, consulted users and relevant guidelines to decide what we would need. We agreed a design, obtained quotes and started fundraising and applying for grants.

We were delighted that in just nine months we had been awarded grants of over £75,000 and received donations of over £15,000 which together with money raised from events enabled the project to go ahead over the summer holidays. We are very grateful to the many grantors and donors.

The kitchen is now in use and all the many groups that use our hall can continue to enjoy food served from our new kitchen and the companionship that goes along with that.

These groups include our monthly Community Lunch for the elderly, our monthly Messy Church for local families, our recently launched monthly Vintage Tea, the Winter Night Shelter for rough sleepers and the weekly Parent and Toddler group. Voluntary Action Reigate and Banstead are also looking forward to coming back for a third year on Christmas Day to provide a lunch for those who would otherwise be on their own.
