We are very grateful to the National Lottery Awards for All scheme for its generous grant of £10,000. This has enabled us to make a number of long overdue improvements, including:
replacing the doors and windows in the main hall, the toilets and in the front entrance;
repairing the paving and steps at the rear entrance; and
redecorating all of the external paintwork.
We hope all our users are feeling the benefits in keeping temperatures warmer and more stable, reducing health and safety risks, and generally making the Hall a more comfortable and attractive place. Hopefully we will also save fuel costs and improve security too.
Many thanks also to all the committee members and hall users who helped us to make the case for the grant and to organise the works.
