I5th November 2012 saw the new Committee Room officially opened by Councillor Judy Lea.
An extension has been added to the side of the Committee Room, and this provides a small kitchen with plumbed in water boiler for instant hot drinks, kettles and microwave oven. A fridge has been donated by a committee member and will shortly be installed.
There is also a unisex disabled toilet, and a storage area for the tables and chairs. A complete new floor has been laid in the committee room itself, and new carpet tiles have also been laid, and a grant was received from Birmingham Airport towards this work.
There is now also full disabled access to the committee room.
Balsall Parish Council and Berkswell Parish Council both made donations towards the cost of the extension, as did Balsall Common Lions and The Bugle. A grant of £5000 towards the cost of installing disabled access has been received from the Big Lottery Fund.
