The Project

With your help, interest and generosity, we aim to create a community facility for the 21st Century that will be a worthy addition to the village for the enjoyment of villagers and visitors alike whilst keeping the building true to itself.

We will achieve this by providing:

1. A Village Museum

The History of Dunster and its Villagers with audio/visual records, documentation, artifacts, archaeology in the Hall, and  a ‘Hands on’ and ‘Explore’ area on the stage. The latter will be linked to the National Curriculum and designed by Dunster First school, for children to see how the people lived in the village in days gone by. INITIAL OBJECTS ARE ON DISPLAY

The Museum in the Hall will be designed with movable display units that allow the space to be used for villager meetings/ talks/ parties/ films/ shows/ coffee mornings/ presentations and the like.

2. An Information Room and kitchen – a start point for village history tours, etc. COMPLETED
