Village Hall Refurbishment

Stage 1 of the refurbishment is almost complete with a new Entrance and Storage room all up and running. The new kitchen area has also been completed and it is hoped to get the kitchen fitted out in May. Another grant application has been successful, thanks to Carole Trow, Doreen Till and Colin Sayers. This should provide funds to upgrade to eco-friendly heating for the hall and other areas, along with improved insulation and some redecoration in the hall.
