Councillors Fund Hall


Churnet Ward District Councillors Elsie Fallows and Ivor Lucas have each donated £100 from their Community Initiative Fund to Kingsley Village Hall.

Councillor Fallows’ donation has been used to purchase new tablecloths to place on recently sourced banquet tables and will be used in a forthcoming wedding reception, the first held in many years at the hall if not ever.

Councillor Lucas’s donation has been used to purchase a commercial grade toaster and has come at a very opportune moment as the hall’s annual Easter Saturday breakfast event is to be held on Saturday 15th April between 9am and 12 noon.

Said Chair of the Trustees  Martyn Hordern ‘ we are delighted and very grateful that Elsie and Ivor have been able to assist us’ he added  ‘the money will be put to good use and will enhance the hall’s facilities and capability’

The Easter breakfast has fast become a fixture in the village with volunteers doing the cooking and washing up whilst the community has a great breakfast and meets up with old friends and makes new one in the heart of the village.

This year a children’s breakfast includes an Easter gift and costs £3.50. An adult’s breakfast costs £3.50 if purchased in advance which is recommended as it helps the hall to cater properly.

To get tickets for the event visit the event page on this web site, or contact Martyn Hordern on 01538 750657.
