Restoration and Improvement of the Hall 2006/7
The Tremayne Hall has had many uses in its long life, but in spite of grade two protected status, it had got into such a neglected state by the summer of 2006 large pieces of plaster were falling from the ceiling and it had to be closed for safety. Fortunately, as a result of a great deal of hard work by the Management Committee, major grants were secured from the likes of the Heritage Lottery Fund and others and the work of restoration could begin.
Architects, David Scott & Co, drew up plans and a model was produced to show how the hall could be both repaired and enhanced. The contract was awarded to S Quick and Sons of Helston and work began in August 2006. The entire roof was replaced and other major structural work was undertaken, in addition to the demolition of the old outside lavatories and the building of a new entrance lobby with all facilities, a new small meeting room (the Pope Room) and an enlarged Green Room.
An important part of our grant application was the plan to provide an Archive Centre for the community. The old upstairs store room was converted into an archive storage and office area, and the old entrance lobby became the Reading Room where archives would be displayed and the public could gain access to the collection administered by the Mylor Local History Group.
