Just over 15 months from the start of the building works the Thomas Field Hall was officially opened. The ceremony was performed after a special service last Sunday, 19th September, by Bishop Michael, the Bishop of Hertford. The church was full (by Covid standards) to hear the Bishop’s encouraging words about the achievement of the building and the future use of the Hall which he was sure will be a great asset to the whole village and provide a useful facility for many events. The formal unveiling of the commemorative plaque was followed by a bring and share buffet lunch which was much enjoyed by everyone.
The Hall has already been used for several different functions. It works well and is being well received. We will post up on the website details of how to go about hiring it.
As always we would like to thank all who supported the project to turn a cramped and outdated vestry into such a splendid building.
