Repairs to the Church, repairs to the Lacy Thompson Hall, The Play Group (Storage), The Joseph Bell Memorial, Craft Fairs, A bouncy Castle for the School Fair, the ‘Village News’ and it has made a considerable donation to ‘The Hub’ (Community Benefit Society Hallbankgate Hub Ltd) to enable them to purchase the freehold of the Scotmid premises.
