(November 2016) Village Hall news

“It’s like having a new hall…”

… said someone at the Sibford Farmer’s Supper and we hadn’t even put the final finishing coat of paint on the walls then!

Phase Two of the Village Hall refurbishment is just about complete. Tappers Interiors had completed all the building work in just three weeks during August. Because the hall is used so frequently it was October before we could find six consecutive days to do the decorating and then these had to be split into two periods. The paint, brushes and other decorating equipment was kindly donated by Brewers Decorating Centre, Banbury.

Thanks are due to the tremendous efforts of a small band of villagers who worked over a period of six days to decorate the inside of the large hall. A generous donation by the Town Estate Charity has enabled us to provide new window blinds and door curtains completing the finishing touches.

In 1957 when the current hall was built the village thought they had a hall of which they could be truly proud. The same can be said today. Sibford Village Hall is the best in the area thanks to the ongoing enthusiasm of the Management Committee who have raised over £40,000 to bring stages one and two of the hall refurbishment to fruition.

Watch this space for phase three!
