The Hall refurbishment is now 95% complete – and the Hall is ready for use
After 3 months of hard work, Carters have completed the refurbishment process. The Hall is looking amazing………. There are still a few things left to do, but the Hall is once more ready for use by the public – and already being used regularly too! We now have as regulars Puppy training, Pilates, Chamber orchestra, coffee mornings, badminton, WI and The Cornerstone Church (Sunday afternoons), not counting our regular meetings involving various village committees.
So whats new?
The old main hall and the new main hall. – quite a change…..…..this includes the hung ceiling, the new heating system, the new lighting, the new floor and the large picture window at the far end.
The old toilets being dismantled
The new toilets
The car park – with its massive drainage problem. Now tarred and designed to capture water as it runs off the road and the car park itself. New double glazing can be seen as well.
The field front without, and with the new patio
The meeting room is much as it was. Just different lighting and heating. We still need to get new tables and chairs and a cinema system, but that will come in due course…….
The first thing you will notice on arrival is the new tarred car park – and what a difference that will make. No more soggy or muddy shoes as you enter the Hall entrance.
The second thing you will notice is how warm it is once you enter the hall….. so different to the past and you will be amazed at how warm it is compared to the last 25 years!
The whole Hall has been repainted and it looks amazing.
So whats still to do?
On the inside, we need the new cinema and sound system, a new set of tables and chairs and blinds for the big windows in the main hall. We are still raising funds for the completion of all this, so please bear with us. we have raised over £275,000 so far, so we haven’t done too badly!
