Emneth Central Hall is hoping to attract extra bookings now that its out-dated kitchen has been given a £10,620 make-over.

The hall had been losing bookings due to the out-dated previous kitchen, which did not have a cooker and dated back to the 1970s.

Thanks to a £5,000 Big Lottery Fund grant and £4, 384 from Norfolk Community Fund and a £405 donation from Emneth Women’s Institute, the kitchen has been transformed.

The room has been gutted and fitted with new tiles, cupboards, worktops and a sink. It also now has a large cooker and a microwave.

Treasurer Peter Oliver, who did a lot of the work, has received good feedback from groups using the building.

He said: “This is going to make the hall more attractive to those wanting to hire it. Hopefully it will encourage more bookings for wedding receptions and birthday parties.”

A coffee morning to celebrate the new look raised £23.
