Awards will give community a modern village hall

FOLKTON and Flixton Village Hall Committee and Folkton Parish Council would like to thank Yorventure for the grant of £16,000 as a contribution to the installation of a new central heating boiler, new radiators, pipework, damp-proof membrane and under-floor insulation as well as new maple flooring for the main hall.

The committee would also like to thank ‘Awards For All’ for a grant of £9,900 which will contribute to a similar renovation of the floor in the supper room.

It is expected that work on the improvements will begin in April and it is hoped that the work will be completed by September 2012.

The new flooring will replace the original flooring which was installed 76 years ago and which was becoming uneven and badly worn. This modernisation will make the village hall a more pleasant environment for everyone and will ensure that this valuable facility continues to be of service to the whole community for the rest of the century.The new flooring in particular will make the hall more suitable for use by young children, the elderly and for indoor sports, musical entertainment, dancing and fitness groups.
