(cont…) However by 1974 the wooden hut was in a poor state of repair and was knocked down. A new wooden hut was built in its place which lasted to the early nineties when plans had been made to build a new village hall.
As there was no easy funding available in those days nor was there a lottery fund available, there was a significant amount of opposition to the idea of a new hall as the costs for a new hall were estimated to be in excess of £150k (actually £154k).
Many people believed this was just too expensive for a small village and many people believed that the existing wooden hall or the hall in the primary school would be good enough to serve the community. (tbc)

As the nights get darker, there is an increased risk of burglary when many homes will look obviously unoccupied. This can make your property more attractive to a potential burglar who would not like to be seen or discovered.
Use light timer switches, to make your home look occupied as it starts to get dark from about 3p.m. 3:30p.m. even just leaving some lights switched on will be beneficial. Think of rooms you would naturally be in such as a living room or kitchen. Leave a radio on a talk station, and make sure that all the windows, doors and side gates are secure. There have been some recent burglaries where intruders have got in due to an insecurity. Read more by clicking on the Read More link. Read more
