AN INGOLDMELLS Community Hall has recently undergone an extensive refurbishment programme which was officially celebrated with a grand re-opening last Thursday.
St Peter’s Hall received over £33,000 worth of refurbishment work which was made possible by a number of grants.
WREN (Waste Recycling Environmental) donated £15,000, The Lottery Awards for All programme gave £10,000, East Lindsey District Council presented £8,000 and Coun Colin Davie allocated £500 from the ELDC’s Councillors’ Community Initiative Scheme.
The funding was used to provide a new kitchen, ladies’ toilet, disabled toilet and the former gents toilet was modernised.
The Bishop of Grimsby, David Rossdale, carried out the Honours of the ceremony and also congratulated the trustees on having renewed the building for the generations to come.
Many people attended from Addlethorpe, Ingoldmells, Skegness and Bad Gandersheim which is in Germany.
The trustees of the hall also made a presentation to Tony Eley who supervised the work.
Coun Graham Archer presented a plaque on behalf of ELDC and Michael Kennedy presented a plaque on behalf of WREN.
Herman Vogel of Bad Gandersheim also gave the Bishop a gift from the German visitors.
Thanks also went to the ladies who provided the refreshments on the day and helped in the kitchen.
