The Hall Open Day on Easter Saturday attracted over 400 people, and included an Easter Egg hunt for the children, an Easter Bonnet Parade and exhibitions in the hall on the history of the Community Hall from 1923 to present day.
Other organisations such as the Mothers Union, Brindle Women’s Institute, Brindle Historical Society, B.O.F.F’s (Brindle Over 55’s), Brindle Book Club and the Scouts were represented. Cuckoo Walk organiser, Mike McGovern, reported considerable interest in the walks on the 6th May, as did Steve Williams who has organised a football evening, with guest speaker Paul Fletcher, on the 22nd May.
Hall Secretary, Anne Nuttall, received over £1,000 in donations towards equipment for the new building. Hall Chairman, Meg Burford, said “The day was a great success. Everyone was so impressed with the new building and very supportive of our efforts”.
The hall is now open for business and taking bookings (see our new Bookings page). The official opening will take place on Saturday, 19th August at 2.30 p.m., almost 83 years to the day when the first building (Brindle Parish Institute) was opened on the site.
