The Hall’s management is engaging Brazier Interiors to carry out the latest refurbishment works. No new bookings are being taken for the period 8th-19th April. The current regular hirers have been informed and they will communicate with their clients and customers. Some are accepting a little bit of disruption and are able to soldier on. If you are a class member and have heard nothing, please check with your class organiser.
The work includes:
- installing a suspended ceiling with recessed lighting in the lobby area and committee room
- replacing all the flooring in the same areas
- fitting protectors to the store room door frames
- renewing the sprung hinges on the inner main doors
- installation of a presentation screen in the committee room
- redecoration in the affected areas
When the work is complete, at the end of April, the Hall’s chairs are to be replaced. All 135 existing chairs are therefore available to anyone, all together or in partial lots, for a modest but appropriate donation. The existing chairs stack, and may be linked together.
The committee room tables will also be replaced with the old ones available to whoever may want them, on the same basis. There is nothing wrong with the current tables, which were themselves a temporary solution when the antique committee table was damaged beyone economic repair a few years ago. The new tables will fold away, so that the room may more easily be used by bridge groups (who use their own card tables) and the Multiple Sclerosis Society (who bring in their own massage tables).
Enquiries about the surplus chairs and tables should be made to the Hall’s chairman by e-mail.
