New curtains are in progress
We have received funding from the Little Cheyne Court Wind Farm Community Fund and can now go ahead with ordering and making curtains for the Hall.
As part of the refurbishment of the hall, new curtains will replace the existing blinds and curtains. New rails are already fitted and curtains have been assessed. Good fitting black-out curtains will improve the hall for people using the projector for talks, film nights, stage nights and evening entertainment, on those bright summer evenings we are all looking forward to.
Three committee members trawled through hundreds of samples. After looking at many sample fabrics, three were put to town vote and the preferred fabric was sample B (the one with the small pattern). Thank you very much to all who voted.
BECOME A SUPPORTER
And set up a yearly direct debit of your choice. We have nearly 50 supporters who generously make an annual contribution to the upkeep of the hall, for the benefit of the community.
