Work starts shortly to improve facilities at the Townsend Memorial Hall

The TMH Committee (Trustees) have been awarded a substantial grant from WREN to enable the refurbishment of the downstairs kitchen and back hall. The grant will cover everything from new flooring and plastering, to kitchen units and a range of equipment to bring it up to modern day catering standards; thus making the TMH a much more attractive venue to hire out for a variety of activities.

The work on the downstairs kitchen will start on Monday 1 August and take about 4 weeks to complete. With the main downstairs room being required for access, where possible all activities taking place in the downstairs rooms will be moved upstairs.

The TMH Committee are aware that there may be some short-term and  unavoidable inconvenience to users and to local residents, with a skip outside the hall, and noise and mess, but hope that they will be understanding.
