Come to the Party!

Our re-launch event took place on Sunday 27th October from 2-5pm, 2013. It was in the form of a party open to all, in the main hall, half of which was dedicated to children and the other half to weddings and other special occasions. There were also competitions and prizes to be won.

Our party was a way to mark the end of our extensive renovations and thank the donors and local community for all their support. It was also a fantastic opportunity for the community to witness the brand new facilities, including the state-of-the art professional kitchen. A few carefully selected suppliers donatedg their ‘time and wares’ for free, to provide a fun-filled afternoon for the whole community—and to showcase our venue at its best. There were activities and refreshments for all age groups, and a brilliant free prize draw for every attendee who choose to enter.
