      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 .
