HALL REOPENING

FOLLOWING A FEW HECTIC MONTHS, THE HALL WAS READY FOR ITS OFFICIAL OPENING! 

Everyone in the village was invited, along with several others and it seemed as if most of the village and their friends attended. 

Mr James Maberly, who had spearheaded the effort to refurbish the hall, spoke first and thanked all those who had helped, donated funds, planned and created the new surroundings. There was special mention of Mr Keir Wyatt and Mr Allen Dyne who had dealt with day to day issues along the way. 

The official guest Councillor Stephen Burroughes, our local County Councillor, spoke next to congratulate all concerned and expressed pleasure at the transformation that had occurred.

Finally, Susan Warren, the young lady who had officially opened the Hall in 1985 at the age of 11, recalled the day she found out that she would be cutting the ribbon at the new hall. Then, she handed the scissors over to Oliver Steward, today's 11 year old whose name has been drawn from a hat, to cut the ribbon. 

A wonderful supper, provided by Mrs Maggie Archard and volunteers, followed the ceremony and speeches with a great deal of reminiscing and catching up with old neighbours and friends. Overall, a successful and happy evening for all!

Dennington Village Hall Website

The Village Hall and Sports Club now have a website of their own: www.denningtonvillagehall-sportsclub.org so if you wish to make bookings of the main hall and/or the meeting room, please go to the Village Hall website and follow instructions. You can also call Binkie Andrews on 01728 638813 or email her directly: denningtonvillagehall@gmail.com She will be happy to discuss dates and rates.

The main hall itself is expansive and has an excellent bar. There is a kitchen for all culinary needs and a very large car park, thus making it an ideal location for a variation of functions. It has been recently updated to very high standards and should meet most requirements. Why not take a look and see for yourself on the Village Hall website page.
