2017 has seen the start of the refurbishment of the Village Hall. We have been extremely fortunate in receiving grants of almost £30,000 so far but there is still work to be done and so the quest for funding continues.
The ladies toilets have been completely redone and now work has started on the gents. This will be finished by the end of June. It was recently discovered that the asbestos on the roof of the small hall is breaking down and so it has become urgent that the roof be replaced. It is planned that work on this should start at the end of July/beginning of August. Work will then have to be carried out on the hall itself as it will be rendered unusable as a result of replacing the roof.
As well as grant aid the Trustees are working on fundraising themselves.
There has recently been an envelope appeal throughout the village and so far we have raised over £2,000.00 and still rising! Thank you Wethersfield, this will all go towards the refurbishment of your village hall. Future events:
15th July: Village Hall Fun Weekend Quiz. 7.30 pm start. Tickets £5.00 per person to include a delicious slice of Mary Berry’s Wimbledon Cake and a glass of prosecco (bring your own drinks and nibbles). It’s hoped that all village clubs and associations will field teams.
16th September: Wethersfield Garage Sale. For further information please contact Russell Green, 01371 850458.
21st October: “ABBA Sensation”! This is one of the country’s finest ABBA tribute bands, more used to playing large venues than village halls but they are coming to Wethersfield! Tickets £12.50 each. Contact Mair Godley, 01371 850620. Look out for the posters and get your tickets quickly!
