Dennington Village Hall has been fully re-opened following a series of refurbishment works, which have cost around £270,000.

A huge amount of structural changes have taken place, as well as the purchasing of new equipment for the hall.

The villagers of Dennington marked the launch of the newly-refurbished hall with a special opening party.

Organisers said that: “It was a great celebration of community spirit with over 200 people present, young and old, and much fun had by all.”

The hall is now open for bookings and details can be found on its website.
