Thanks to the huge generosity of the people of Hambledon, we have now had sponsorship for all fifty of the new chairs we need for the Village Hall which is such a fantastic result. When our secretary, Paul Vacher, suggested the idea, we thought it was a great plan and we have been overwhelmed by the support the scheme has had.
Due to another very kind donation we will be able to put a small name plaque on each chair. If you haven’t already been in touch, please contact Ruth Canham on 01428 685 729 or at firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know what name/names you would like on yours.
We are also enormously grateful to the Hambledon Midsummer Festival organising team for their extremely kind donation of £2,000 which will pay for a new rainwater soak-away under the hall car park. We are very hopeful that this will improve the problem of damp in the hall.
Having this vital work paid for and our new chairs sponsored means that we now have funds available to have the interior of the hall redecorated and some necessary repairs carried out on the exterior woodwork.
Thank you Hambledon!
