Bridge tea party raises funds for hall renovation
A bridge tea party, held at Chew Stoke Church Hall, has raised £761 towards the renovation of the building.
The event was the latest fundraiser to help organisers inch towards their £100,000 target.
Presenting the prizes was the Rev Victor Barley, who said: "The caring and support from this lovely annual event, is a win-win situation – you enjoy the event and we raise money."
The hall committee has just had a donation from the parish council of £35,000 from a planning agreement with builder Charles Church over its Radford development.
The plans for the renovated hall include a new storeroom, toilets, and a refreshment bar. It also includes refurbishment of the kitchen.
There are several more fundraising events planned for the future, before work gets started.They are hoping to begin work on the hall in late October or early November.
