Time for a rest!

The busy volunteer members of Gargrave Village Hall Management Committee have had a hectic weekend with hosting both a Coffee morning and one of the two day Fairs over the bank holiday weekend.

The Hall itself is resting now too with just three regular Hirers in during the week, so hopefully this will also enable the work on the stage to get near completion. Old lighting and electrics have been removed so too a very old and large boxed fan and the ceiling is been boarded and insulated. It has been a big job and work can only take place when the main Hall is empty. The first week in September will see all regular Hirers and new ones return as things get back to normal with the return of the schools.

There are no public events at the Hall over the weekend of the 2nd and 3rd September.
