Four steps to  a better hall
The hall committee - with the help of the parish council - has been working for months on a project to repair, extend and modernise the Victorian schoolroom, which was converted into a  hall in the 1960s.

Phase one - to create an overflow car park -  has been completed by the council on land donated by Russell and Caroline Bendle. It has cost about £4,000.

Phase two-  is to make the hall warmer and more weather-proof by a major renovation of the slate roof. We are about to seek funding for this, and if successful work will start by the new year.

Phase three is to build an extension behind the stage to create new toilets, a dressing room for performers and an upstairs room to house the parish archives. Mid Devon District Council has already given planning permission for the extension, and is  considering a buildings regulations application.

Phase four will be to convert the old toilets into a store for tables and chairs, replace the existing fixed stage with more flexible portable staging blocks, and improve the lighting, heating and kitchen.
