The annual mince pie and coffee morning held at Lydiard Millicent Village Hall in early December had an added twist this year. The recently refurbished toilets were ‘officially opened’ by local celebrity Howard Taylor from Total Star Radio’s breakfast programme.
A substantial grant for the project was received from Viridor Credits under the Landfill Communities Fund, and the grant process was managed by Community First. We also received a donation from The Purton and Lydiard Charity Fund.
A surprise additional contribution made by Npower/RWE helped considerably towards the refurbishment of the Entrance Hall which was additional to the original plans.
All the work was carried out by A C Watson the contractor chosen for the project. Andy completed the total refurbishment as promised within the time scale agreed at the outset.
For details about the hall mail the chairman Nigel Margetts – firstname.lastname@example.org or make a booking by calling Joe Ricketts on 01793 770828.
