Kings Ripton is to get a newly refurbished kitchen for its village hall thanks to a grant of almost £5,000.

A grant of £4,710 awarded from WREN’s Community Action Fund will be used to replace the old kitchen in Kings Ripton Village Hall.

Michael Krause, a village hall trustee, said: “The hall is the only public amenity in this small village. The kitchen is not just old but its layout makes it difficult for the community to run events with more than just a few people.

“We’re delighted to have funding from WREN. Hall users have been asking us to improve the kitchen. Over the last few months some enthusiastic volunteers have planned the new one and applied to WREN for funding. We hope it will be open early in the New Year. It will make a real difference to the village.’

WREN is a not-for-profit business which awards grants for community, biodiversity and heritage projects from funds donated though the Landfill Communities Fund.
