The Village Hall Grand Re-opening
After a “face-lift”, Cridling Stubbs Village Hall was officially re-opened on Saturday, 2nd November by Mr & Mrs Hallam. Mr Hallam said a few words commending the work done and Mrs Hallam cut the ribbon allowing the visitors to view the transformation.
Free refreshments were served and entertainment was provided by the talented young musician James Bottomley. Everyone seemed to admire the new décor and have a good time. A raffle was held with lots of high calorie prizes. In total, £60 was raised for Village Hall funds.
Anyone wishing to hire the Hall should contact Julie Bottomley, telephone 675730. Hire charges are a very reasonable £6 per hour, which covers the cost of all facilities. The use of a microwave can be arranged.
A traditional Christmas party is to be held for primary and pre-school
children on Saturday 14th December from 3-5pm.
Invitations are on their way.
note that the Village Hall Grounds are not suitable for the exercising of
dogs. The grounds will need
cleaning before they can be used for children’s activities.
