. . . . . you’ll see that the Village Hall noticeboard is back in position. We looked at it last year, and noticed quite a lot of damage and flaking varnish. Replacements are expensive – up to £600 – so we took it down just after Christmas for a full refurbishment. Unfortunately, when it went back to the workshop, we discovered several pieces of rotten wood, which had to be replaced.
Many thanks from all of us to Jeremy Retford, who repaired the damage and revarnished the noticeboard. Thanks also to Jeremy’s neighbour, Mike Smith, for cutting and shaping several replacement wooden sections.
The board is now back in position, and we hope it will give good service through many more Crudwell winters!
