History of Haslingfield Village Hall (part VI)

And we do not plan to stop here. We have recently purchased new smart tables for the hall. We plan to fit new upvc security windows to replace the old wooden ones which are in need of replacement. We would like to smarten up the place with new curtains to give a more modern look. These curtains are still from the pre-1991 hall.
   We have replaced the front door with a pair of new ones and maintain the borders around the front door. And with funding we would like to modernise the hall and provide more storage for users. We also plan to extend the kitchen area to welcome a new generation of users.

We believe the village hall has been shown to be a real asset to the local community and would like to thank all the people who have helped to raised funds and contribute to make the hall what it is today.
