On Monday morning, 2 March 2020, ground was broken in Little Gaddesden churchyard at the start of works to build the Thomas Field Hall.
The vicar, the Revd John Russell, made the first cut in the soil. He is seen here accompanied by two of the building contractors, the site archaeologist, and churchwarden Barbara Sheard, who originated the design of the new hall. They are gathered round the headstone of Thomas Field, after whom the hall is to be named.
The Vestry@50 Appeal to build the Thomas Field Hall has now raised enough to be able to construct the shell of the hall, but we now need to raise money for the fit out and to upgrade the church heating. Do please donate if you can. Full bank details and gift aid information are given on our donation leaflet downloadable here:
There’s more project and financial information available on the Vestry@50 – The Thomas Field Hall page.
