Lof­tus Hall un­der­goes mi­nor works

The Sligo Champion - - NEWS -

THE Lof­tus Hall in Bal­ly­mote has seen some mi­nor but es­sen­tial up­grades over the past few months thanks to fund­ing from Sligo County Coun­cil. The in­te­rior and ex­te­rior of the build­ing was re­cently painted by mem­bers of the lo­cal Com­mu­nity Scheme with the use of a grant at­tained in 2017.

A num­ber of weeks ago the hall com­mit­tee were suc­cess­ful in their ap­pli­ca­tion un­der the Com­mu­nity En­chance­ment Pro­gramme for heat­ing up­grades.

Bal­ly­mote Coun­cil­lor Keith Henry who com­pleted both ap­pli­ca­tions with the com­mit­tee says that “€2,750 was al­lo­cated in Oc­to­ber to im­prove the heat­ing sys­tem in the hall.

“The Lof­tus hall is a vi­tal as­set to the town and is used by var­i­ous sport­ing, dra­matic and com­mu­nity groups and all works are greatly ap­pre­ci­ated. I want to pay trib­ute to the lo­cal Com­mu­nity Scheme un­der the man­age­ment of Gerry McHugh, the as­so­ci­ated com­mit­tees and the LCDC for their sup­port in main­tain­ing this fa­cil­ity.”
