New look Farningham village hall can be transformed into whatever you want it to be
FARNINGHAM VILLAGE HALL has been repainted in lighter colours and the kitchen has been refurbished with a new cooker, a new fridge, new water heater and new cooker hood and extractor fan. The hall was recently delightfully transformed by the Axstane Players into a little French village for their annual panto, Beauty and the Beast. The performances were packed out. There is plenty of scope for hirers to transform the hall into a welcoming and entertaining venue for any family activity or event. It now provides ideal facilities for parties, weddings and any family celebrations. You can hire just the main hall or the whole building, with or without the Market Meadow. There is a website with more information at: www.farninghamvillagehall.co.uk To book, email firstname.lastname@example.org or tel. 07530 297707.
