WITH the final investment decision on Hinkley rumoured to be just around the corner, one of the most affected parishes is celebrating after getting the green light for a £2.4m project to improve their village hall.

Stogursey Victory Hall will see new and improved sports facilities for the village, after West Somerset Council approved £400,000 of Hinkley CIM funding to go on the project at their full council meeting on Wednesday, January 20.

The parish is likely to feel the effect of Hinkley Point C more than any other as every HGV going in and out of the construction site will drive through the parish, with around 1 in 6 people in Stogursey expected to part of the Hinkley workforce, plus they will be affected by the construction itself, which has been given permission to work 24 hours a day.
