At the end of September we received the fantastic news that our application for funding had been approved and that the Hambledon Community Fund is very generously paying for new stage curtains for the village hall. This will make a big difference to the hall and we are extremely grateful. Most of our new chairs have now arrived, just a few more and the nameplates to come. The hall has been decorated and we’ve got a new rainwater soak-away under the car park. Once the new curtains have arrived we will be hosting an open afternoon with tea and cake so that everyone in the village can come along and see how the hall is looking, spot their chair (!) and find out what’s going on at the hall. This will also be our opportunity to thank everyone who has so generously given their support and contributed to the improvements we have been able to make. Watch this space for the date!
