Fantastic New Catering Kitchen

We did it, and all thanks to you, for donating to the Kitchen Fund and supporting hall fundraising events; and the Little Cheyne Wind Farm Grants, and Rother Council Grants. We started improving the kitchen 3 years ago after consultations and identified:
a) light users
b) large scale tea and cake providers
c) occassional large event users
d) professional caterers

All had very different needs. We made the easier and cheaper changes first and we have finally completed the kitchen for everyone to use. The principle architect behind the new kitchen is Rob Mortimer who carried out the work in a voluntary capacity, mainly over the Christmas period, saving the New Hall thousands of pounds. We are incredibly appreciative and grateful.
