The first big events in the newly-modernised Halls took place on Saturday 30th January. We had our Grand Opening in the afternoon, and a Fish & Chip Supper in the evening.


More than 300 people attended the Grand Opening, and we have a full report with photographs on the website - click here!


Over the last few years, we've had loads of events in the Halls; many have been in support of the Modernisation Project, and were vital to its success. Whatever the excuse for the party, they have all brought us together with a common aim; they have raised much-needed funds; they have raised our morale; they have brought User Organisations together; they have served the local community; and we've had great fun as well!


Here's a list of all the exciting events we've held since our website began in 2005....
