Heritage Project: Question of the Month

Our Heritage Project
Conservation and Celebration: A Century Serving Our Community as a Parish Hall
Our Heritage Project was launched in September 2017.
Our Parish Hall is owned by our community, is the only community facility in the parish and this is a community project. We aim to conserve our Parish Hall and learn more about how it has served our community for the last 100 years.
Community Questions
To support the project one activity is to raise a question related to the Hall every month for a year which enables members of our community to contribute information.
