Cherry Willingham Village Hall has benefited from The West Lindsey Small Community Grant scheme. In the current financial year, it has received a grant of £500.
Funding was provided to purchase a PA system and hearing loop to improve the sound quality for attendees at functions they attend. The portable public address system will be available for speakers and music for events such as quizzes and parties. As it is portable it can be used by other organisations such as the village fete or library.
A number of user organisations cater for mature members and the hearing loop is invaluable for their events. The acquisition of the system is also adding a further facility to the building which it is hoped will attract further user groups.
3 volunteers have been directly involved in this project providing over 30 hours of time.
Volunteers have gained valuable experience of installation work, snagging and making good the décor afterwards. As part of the process on the advice of the grant administrator, the group have had a review of their constitution. This was found to be a useful exercise.
