As the constrictions of COVID are gradually lifted, the New Hall is easing back into life, rather like a liner emerging from dry-dock. Throughout lockdown, work has continued to improve the fabric, structure and appearance of the New Hall, making the most of the time and space forced upon us.

The last two months has seen the undertaking and completion of the underdrawing of the ceiling, to provide thermal insulation to the roof. This has been a massive project, ably managed by Rob Mortimer, assisted by Hilary Roome, with many others helping with the preparation of materials needed to cover the entire underside of the ceiling. Thank you to everybody involved in the project, which should provide us with real benefits as we move through the year.

Also thank you to The Rye Community Shop for £1000 towards exterior decoration and Rother Community Fund for £975 towards the resurfacing of the front hardstanding.
