In May we had 2 events to raise funds for the All Saints Centre Project to replace the Poringland Village Hall with a brand new state of the art building.
The first was a tombola at the Poringland Farmers Market. This was a really good opportunity to display some artist’s impressions of the new building and many people were very interested in the plans for the site.
The second was a French Themed Evening held in Poringland Village Hall. The hall was decorated in blue, white and red. Our amazing chef produced a delicious French meal and everyone was entertained with quizzes, a drama and a talk by Rev Robert on the more recent history of the hall.
A number of local firms generously donated prizes for the raffl e and everyone was equally generous in buying tickets. Everyone agreed it was a very enjoyable evening and we were thrilled to be able to present a cheque for £561.54 to Rev Robert towards the £1.3m needed.
