Village Hall improvements update
The new front door is in position, and four windows have had their double glazing replaced.Thank you, Dan Colson for doing a brilliant job! And thank you to the Big Lottery for providing the funding. Another of our skilled local craftsmen has also been at work in the hall, and you will notice when you come for your bacon butties, that we have a new counter top. This time it is thanks to Steve Nicholson who has been working hard on all toilet and kitchen carpentry since the beginning of our projects.
This year's Southrey Village Fete held at Karoola (the last bungalow on Ferry Road, opposite the Riverside Inn) on Sunday July 7th was a great success. The sun shone and many visitors stayed for the afternoon, enjoying the refreshments in Ann and John's beautiful garden. £520.26 was raised, to be shared between Southrey Village Hall and St John's church. Our thanks to all the helpers and all who came and supported the event!
The afternoon tea party in the village hall on the following Sunday was another ejoyable and well-attended occasion.Thank you everyone who wore pink: your outfits were inspiring! Almost £300 was raised for Breast Cancer Care. Thank you to all who came and gave so generously.
This is on the front wall of the village hall. If you have to dial 999 and need to use the defibrillator, the ambulance service will tell you the code that opens the cabinet door. They will then talk you through how to use it. The defibrillator itself also talks to you and explains what to do.
