RIMINGTON MEMORIAL INSTITUTE
The Memorial Institute ( Village Hall ) has had "a make over " funded by grants
sourced by Community Futures of Fulwood from The Lancashire Enviromental Fund
( LEF ) , The Harold and Alice Bridges Charity Fund and The Duchy of Lancaster
Benevolent Fund .
Lancashire Enviromental Fund , these are monies raised from a landfill tax credit
scheme with the fund being held and distributed by LEF based in Bamber Bridge .
The Harold and Alice Bridges Charity was set up in 1963 and further funds were added
following the sale of the road haulage business set up by Harold . The Duchy of
Lancaster Benevolent Fund are monies raised when a person dies without a will or
" intestate " when the Duchy of Lancaster receive their estates as " bona Vacantia ".
The works carried out have been redecoration of the whole premises through the
Main Hall - Main Access - Kitchen - Store Rooms - Toilets . Renewal of of the main
hall lighting using energy efficient LED uplighters , these give an improved ambiance
over the previous " Industrial " flourescent fittings . Fitting of accoustic panels in the
main hall, the benefit of these has been commented on by both performers and
audiences alike . A refurbishment and redecoration of kitchen facilities with upgraded
worktops , units , preparation table and major items of catering equipment , these are
a commercial dishwasher , a commercial 900mm wide cooker with a five plate hob and
an oven that can take standard gastronorm containers and a commercial fan circulated
hot / warming cupboard .
To date the work has been well received by users and The Management Committee
would like to thank LEF , Harold and Alice Bridges Charity Fund and The Duchy of
Lancaster Benevolent Fund and local tradesmen for their work and generosity . More
refurbishments and upgrades are being considered and constructive / realistic
suggestions from all users are welcome , especially if help to carry the ideas forward
is forthcoming .
Finally the committee would like to remind the community that The Memorial
Institute is available to hire for a wide range of functions .
