The hall was devastated by the fire, which happened between 3pm and 4pm on February 17.

Windows were blown out by the blaze, the kitchen was damaged and tables, chairs, toys, books and art equipment were among contents destroyed.

The reward is available from Crimestoppers for information leading to the arrest and charge of the person or people responsible for the fire.

Ann Scott, regional manager for Crimestoppers, said: “This is an extremely safe place to live, so this incident has really shocked the local community. It has devastated so many people as the venue really was a hub for local groups.”

She urged anyone who knew anything about the incident to come forward. “Did someone you know display unusual behaviour on the night of this event?

“Has someone confessed to being involved?” she said.

Anyone with information should call Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555111.
