Kimbolton residents and community groups are set to benefit following the installation of new state-of-the-art infrared heating panels and LED lighting in the Mandeville Hall.
The new infrared panels and lighting were funded by an £8,000 grant from WREN’S community action fund.
The hall is officially back up and running following a launch party held at the facility, in Thrapston Road, last Wednesday (May 25).
The hall provides a multipurpose facility for activities such as pilates, dance, carpet bowls and table tennis and also a monthly cinema, bingo, WI and flower club and an annual pantomime.
Robert Oliver, chairman of the Trustees of the Mandeville Hall said: “This vital improvement to our facility is going to make a real difference to those who use it, as well as the wider community.
