Commemorative bench to be installed at Daresbury Village Hall

A COMMEMORATIVE bench will be installed at Daresbury Village Hall.

This is in honour of Sir Gilbert Greenhall who gifted the hall, formerly known as the Parish Rooms, to the village in 1902.

The group also receiving funding for new equipment to enhance the usage of the venue – including a projector, coffee machine and room dividers.

This all comes after Daresbury Residents Group successfully applied for funding from a homebuilder.

Redrow recently moved into Daresbury Garden Village and to celebrate, they shared a community fund of £10,000 between eight local causes – including the residents’ group.

“The village hall is used by a number of groups in the community. The projector and screen have already been used for a film presentation by the Lewis Carroll Society,” said Debbie Healey, parish councillor for Daresbury and volunteer caretaker of Daresbury Village Hall.

“The room dividers and coffee machine were very useful at our recent Macmillan coffee morning and craft fair event. They will continue to be used by other groups who rent the hall.

“A big thank you to Redrow for supporting the Daresbury Residents Group.”

Sarah Weaver, marketing manager at Redrow NW said: “The residents group do a lot of wonderful work in Daresbury, so we were happy to help with funding to purchase these facilities and the commemorative bench.”

“I hope they are enjoyed by the community for many years to come.”
