A RECENT fund-raising Body Shop party at the Black Abbot raised £300 for the Scott Jubilee Hall, much to the joy and delight of the committee.
The hall provides an affordable and safe environment for different community groups and Girl Guiding units to meet on a weekly basis.
Various sporting groups also use the Scott Jubilee hall, and people take part in exercise classes, table tennis and martial arts.
The hall also provides a popular meeting place for coffee mornings.
There are ambitious plans to upgrade the facilities to even better serve the hall-users and local community and accommodate a greater diversity of groups.
The addition of a retractable partition wall would increase the hall’s adaptability when used with groups of differing sizes, and the installation of disabled toilet facilities would greatly aid the hall’s accessibility.
A further fund-raising event is a fashion show in M & Co, High Street, on Friday, November 25, at 6.30pm.
Tickets, costing £5, are available from Clark’s Shoe Shop, High Street, and you are advised to get your ticket early.
