The improvements to the hall are part of Sanctuary’s commitment to supporting the communities where it is building new homes.

Working in partnership with the Homes and Communities Agency, Sanctuary Maintenance has built four new developments across Chester, including at Laurel Bank in Upton, which are providing some much needed affordable accommodation in the city.

Sanctuary also held a ‘design a fantasy playground’ competition for pupils from nearby Acresfield Primary School in Upton. The designs have inspired plans for a new play area, which will be installed at the scheme over the coming months.

Paul Finch, Managing Director of Sanctuary Maintenance, said: “Sanctuary is committed to supporting the community and making improvements to facilities, such as this village hall in Upton, for the benefits of residents. The environmental benefits of the work will have a lasting impact on the community.”

Phil Pearn, Upton Village Hall Committee Member, added: “We are so grateful to Sanctuary Maintenance for their support, which has helped us to achieve our wider ambitions of making our hall more environmentally friendly.”
