Proposed Changes to the Hall Layout

posted 28 Mar 2013, 16:27 by Mike Carrington   [ updated 28 Mar 2013, 16:33 ]

The Committee is looking at the possibility of updating the Hall floorplan to make the Small Hall more accessible to users

The plan below shows the alterations in grey. 
A new corridor has been knocked through from the Small Hall to the Foyer, giving all users access to the toilets and kitchen without going outside or disturbing occupants of the Main Hall.
Storage space has been added at the left of the Hall for tables and chairs, and ensuring that all users can get the facilities that they need.

Try StreetLife.com

Nowadays it is really easy to contact people you know anywhere around the world - but it isn't so easy to contact local people with common interests.
Simply advertising things like the Village Feast, the Swaffham Prior Carpet Bowls club, and the Cage Hill kart race is difficult.
So I have a request:
  • try streetlife.com, a website that lets you find out what's happening in Swaffham Prior and the surrounding villages
  • join in more local events and make new friends
PS: I have no connection to the website - I just think it is a great idea.

    • Bouncy Castle
    • Bottle Stall

    • Tin Can Alley
    • Splat the Rat
    • ... and more

Kitchen Renovation

posted 14 Jul 2012, 08:57 by Mike Carrington

The Village Hall will be closed throughout August for renovation.
We are having a complete refit of the kitchen, including appliances and non-slip flooring.
The wooden floor in the main Hall is also being sanded and varnished.
We hope that the improvements will be worth the inconvenience caused to our customers.
