A message from the Trustees
We are sorry about the disruption caused by the closure of the car park, which was undertaken to restrict access by caravans to the ground, and have unanimously decided on the following.
An extremely generous offer has been made by Rob Sketchly from Kent Trade Frames to install a height restricting barrier of 2.1 metres, which will be lockable and movable should a higher vehicle require access to the ground.
The existing gate will be closed but not padlocked at all times and a noticed will be placed on the gate to remind users to keep it closed after use.
We would like to take this opportunity to remind everyone that the Village Hall carpark is really only for the use of hirers of the village hall.
John Tutt, On behalf of the Trustees of the Village Hall.
You may be aware the Village Hall Committee are embarking on a grant application to extensively improve the hall facilities. To this end we are asking for your help with the project application by letting us know your thoughts on the hall at present, what you would like to see improved and what you currently use the hall for.
Fundraising efforts are again coming to fruition, with the new heating in the main hall having been completed in the summer.
Now the guttering is completed too we'd like to say a huge Thank You to
