Donington Church Hall held a re-launch event on Sunday to celebrate the success of a £50,000 renovation of the building.

The hall was built in 1900 and has had several changes over the years. However, this particular work saw the hall insulated and a total keitchen re-fit.

Village hall spokeswoman Jane Pearson said: “The renovation took six weeks and it went well, there were no problems.”

The £50,000 that was needed to get insulation and improvements came from grants from the Lincolnshire County Council, South Holland District Council, Wadebridge Renewable Energy Network and the Bicker Wind Farm Trust. A quarter of the money came from the Church of St Mary.

To celebrate the re-launch, a full Sunday lunch was served at the hall and 80 locals were invited.

On the menu was roast pork with all the trimmings and treacle sponge.

It also came with a glass of wine for each guest.

In the future Donington Church Hall will be mainly used for fundraising events for the upkeep of the church.

Reverend Charlie Robertson and Jane Pearson gave a plaque to Coun Sue Wray and Coun Rob Clark on behalf of LCC and SHDC to mark the completion of work.
