COTTESBROOKE VILLAGE HALL WELCOMES A NEW CHAIRMAN

On the 28th September 2017 Henry Jackson was appointed the new Chairman of the committee for the Village Hall. Henry has lived in the village since he was a child and the committee welcomed him into the position knowing that he has the best interest of the village at heart. Jane Edwards and Holly Walker were also welcomed as committee members.


Under Henry’s influence the Village Hall has had a big tidy up with lots more ideas in the pipeline. The committee are aiming to raise £5,000 next year to fund the on-going refurbishment of the Village Hall and to restore the play equipment in the park.


To try and raise these funds the committee are welcoming suggestions for fundraising events that people would like to attend. If you have any suggestions please feel free to send them to us via Facebook. A new Facebook page has been created where you can find information about upcoming events at the Village Hall.
