Volunteers who have taken over a village hall in Quadring are appealing to the community to help give it a facelift.

St Margaret’s Community Hall is in urgent need of some TLC – and already some kind local businessmen have offered help.

There’s still a lot of work to be done and we welcome anyone who would like to help

Janet Young

Henry Bingham from Crossroads Nurseries has been assisting with ground maintenance and planting and Paul Wright of Akzo Nobel Decorative Paints Ltd has given them huge discounts on paint and advice on colours.

Janet Young, of the management team, said: “It’s a great start but there’s still a lot of work to be done and we would welcome anyone who would like to help.

“The outside has been looking very drab and our first aim is to spruce it up and make it look inviting.

“We need help with the painting and guttering repairs – as well as levelling the car park and laying new gravel, clearing rubbish and new signage.”

Along with other helpers Ian Elrick, Tony Scully, Derek Williams, Ann Harvey, Batty Dakers and Shaun Wakefield, they are holding a painting day at the end of the month.

Work has already started inside clearing old unused equipment and tidying and cleaning small side rooms, which are being used by a Mothers and Toddlers group, Jiu-Jitsu classes, the Evergreens Club and aerobics classes.

Forthcoming events include British Legion Brass Band concerts on June 13 and a Community Lincs workshop on June 15.
