Mem­o­ries are made of this

Hinckley Times - - NEWS -

AN EX­HI­BI­TION about the his­tory of Sut­ton Cheney will be held in the vil­lage hall on Sun­day Novem­ber 19 from 11am un­til 4pm.

Or­gan­ised by the hall’s man­age­ment com­mit­tee, which has re­cently be­come a reg­is­tered char­ity, the event marks the build­ing’s re­dec­o­ra­tion.

It will fea­ture a dis­play of old pho­to­graphs and doc­u­ments and or­ganiers say it will also be a chance to talk to peo­ple who have per­sonal mem­o­ries of the vil­lage and to record their shared in­for­ma­tion for fu­ture gen­er­a­tions.

Orig­i­nally the vil­lage school, built in the early 1800s, the build­ing be­came a church hall when the school closed and was then leased from the church dio­cese by a trust and com­mit­tee who turned it into a vil­lage hall.

The hall com­mit­tee se­cured a grant from the Her­itage Lot­tery Fund in 2003 which en­abled an ex­ten­sion to be built to ac­com­mo­date toi­lets and a kitchen.

Today, it pro­vides the space for many ac­tiv­i­ties in­clud­ing skit­tles, quizzes and talks, whist drives, a cof­fee club, yoga, sewing, and an art club.

It is also avail­able for hire for fam­ily par­ties and other events and is wheel­chair ac­ces­si­ble.
