Village hall in award shortlist

Heart of the Community logo

Forest Row Village Hall has been shortlisted for the East Grinstead Courier and Observer Heart of the Community awards. Now we need your support to help the hall be the recipient of £2000 towards a new boiler. It will make the hall a much more comfortable place to watch films.
To help us do this, you need to get as many copies of the newspaper as you can this week and the next two weeks and vote for project L07 Forest Row Village Hall. You can collect as many of the voting coupons as you like; it isn’t democratic. Please pass this information on to your friends as well and we can all do our bit to improve the village hall.

Forest Row Village Hall was built in 1892 and is a registered charity run by trustees. It does not receive any local authority funding, and relies on hiring revenue and fundraising by volunteers for income. Located in the heart of the village, it hosts a wide range of community events throughout the year. The existing boiler was installed in the 1970s, and is unreliable and very inefficient. As part of the ongoing plan to enhance and improve the hall facilities, the management committee want to replace the boiler with a new and more energy-efficient system.
