Cyril had been a member of the Village Club for decades and a regular in the lounge bar, calling in for a drink most evenings.
All of us at the hall were very touched to discover that he had left a bequest in his will to the Village Hall. After discussion with the Trustees of the Hall, the Bar Committee and Cyril's family it was decided to use the money to purchase a new bench to sit in the vacant area by the ramp down to the lounge. The bench was chosen also to commemorate the Coronation in May of King Charles III.
The bench has now been installed at the hall (see pictures) and will be officially 'unveiled' this Saturday just ahead of the opening of the village fete at 1pm.
