The Village Hall has now reopened following a major refurbishment project.

As well as major repairs to the roof, there have been upgrades to the kitchen and to the toilet block, and the hall has been redecorated throughout.

Our thanks go to everyone who supported this project, and to the National Lottery Community Fund and the St John's Foundation for grants which made the project possible.
