Lottery Grant awarded!

Jenny Lofthouse applied for a National Lottery grant of £8000 to upgrade the disabled facilites at the village hall, and we have just heard that the grant has been awarded so we can now go ahead with much needed improvements. Total refurbishment of the hall is coming along much faster than anticipated thanks to the skills and efforts of the village hall committee - led by David Lofthouse and John Clark on the manual side of things and Jenny Lofthouse and Diane Clark working tirlessly behind the scenes. Thanks too to the many villagers who have donated useful items to the hall.

Take a look for yourselves. Instead of the dangerous slippery steps up to the front door there is now a ramp and a lovely brick wall at the front topped by the original railings. There is even a small patio area at the back. Fire safety requirements will be met, with new smoke alarms, fire extinguishers and new fire doors. Future works includes new window units, electrical upgrade (to include new heaters), refurbishment of the kitchen and an accessible toilet. Watch this space for more updates.

Newsflash (20/6/22) we have just heard our applications for grants from Lincolnshire Wolds Countryside Service and WLDC have been approved. Watch this space for more details.
