A church hall’s surroundings have been revitalised thanks to South Kesteven District Council’s Community Fund.

Thurlby Methodist Church applied for a grant to refurbish its adjacent hall with major work to its roof, floor, windows and decor.

The refurbishment has been welcomed by the chairman of South Kesteven District Council, Councillor Judy Smith, and ward councillor Barry Dobson, who joined a group of local volunteers at their weekly lunch club at the hall to inspect the updated modern interior.

Thurlby Methodist Church treasurer Chris Stevenson said the grant and its subsequent work had delighted volunteers who run some of the clubs, local residents and those who regularly use the hall.

“It is a much warmer and friendlier space for all.”
