Refurbishment of Main Hall - 2019The main Hall is closed throughout August. It is now a building site, i.e. access to or through the hall is not permissible.
When it re-opens in September it will have a new ceiling, new ceiling lights (LEDs replacing fluorescents), insulation and a fresh lick of paint. The projector and audio equipment are being replaced, along with provision of a new AV cabinet at the rear of the hall. This should make the audio/visual equipment easier to use as well as improving the quality of both projection and sound. We will ensure the loop system is working for hearing-aid users. This rear corner will also house controls for new wall mounted lighting which will increase the flexibility of lighting options for hall users.
The hall is due to re-open on the 1st of September, after which it will be kitted out with new chairs. The existing chairs will be retained and will be brought in to service for larger events.
This is a major investment for the Hall, with support from the National Lottery Community Fund. We are also grateful for assistance from Warkworth Parish Council and from the Butler Ember Charity.
Apologies for any disruption, but we expect to have a much improved facility by September.
