Supporters of Pinchbeck Village Hall have unveiled a calendar of events in a bid to raise about £100,000 for improvements.

A free coffee morning, cake stall and raffle at the hall on October 23 from 10am until noon is the first of three events over the next two months organised by members of the village hall management committee in a fundraising effort for the hall on Knight Street.

Maureen Morley, committee secretary, said: “Whatever we raise will go towards refurbishment funds for the hall which needs new toilets, kitchen, flooring, heating and new doors.

“We applied for a number of grants last year and were turned down, so we’re going to apply again but also raise some money ourselves.”

The coffee morning will be followed by a concert with Status Quo tribute band, Counterfeit Quo, supported by bands from the area at the hall on November 2 at 7.30pm, with tickets priced £10 if bought in advance or £12 on the door.

An afternoon show with Lavender Hill Mob Theatre Company, King’s Lynn, completes the line-up of events for the hall on November 24 at 2pm.

Founded in 2001, the theatre group specialises in shows for children with learning difficulties and tickets for the event are £4.

Christopher Scofield, committee chairman, said: “All of these events are part of our ongoing efforts to raise funds to refurbish the village hall.”
