Building work to refurbish the toilets and entrance  started on Monday July 7th 2014

All told the work overran by a couple of weeks but the Hall was officially handed back on Tuesday 23rd September.

Although not originally planned, we bit the bullet and have also installed a new heating system.


That has prompted us to re-fit the kitchen which is the major work in progress at the moment.


The Hall is now business as usual, although there is still a bit of a work ongoing and we apologise for any disruption.

Hmmm - room for improvement

From little foundations big walls grow

The New Toilets

Oops! - oh dear (well that’s the polite way of putting it). A gas leak (probably been there some time) in the car park.

The kitchen - work in progress


Finished at last
