St Stephen parish council chairman Cllr Mick Freeman unveiled a plaque marking the improvements, alongside members of the village hall management committee: Eve Brown, Barbara Vernon, Dick Downs, Rosemary Ennis, Paul Ennis, Chris Brown, and Pauline Sangers.

After the unveiling a series of events showcasing some of the many activities available at the hall were enjoyed by members of the public.

Dick Downs said: “All in all, it was a very successful day.”

A hall was initially built in 1936 for the communities of Park Street, Frogmore and Colney Street, when the village was primarily in an agricultural area.
