Foyer Opening Sept. 6th 2014

Almost 2 years since an initial idea and after many months of planning and fundraising the new foyer at the front of the village hall is now open. It was offically declared open by St. Edmundsbury Borough Councillor Mrs. Sarah Broughton at lunch time on Saturday 6th September. Village Hall Chairman Mr. Peter Fisk and Project Manager Mr. Peter Tuner made speeches thanking the sponsors, organisations and private individuals who had made donations towards the construction. Also the small team which had overseen the project on behalf of the Great Barton Village Hall Management Committee. About 80 local residents attended the event. An excellent light buffet was provided.  The foyer is energy efficient using low energy LED lighting and an air source heat pump.
