Harpford Village Hall has emerged from the undergrowth for the first time in three years.
The premises reopened in December, but hard working volunteers have spent time removing the thick hedgerow that has shielded the building from view over the years.
Val Ranger, hall committee chairman, said: “The work took place over a number of weekends starting on Saturday March 12, the people involved worked really hard for long days, there was three years of growth to work through.
“It is fantastic to be able to see the hall again emerge from the undergrowth. It is amazing how many people have said I didn’t even know the hall was there – it had been effectively hidden for so long. Now people know exactly where it is we are getting more interest in bookings.”
Upcoming events at the hall include its annual general meeting tomorrow (Saturday) from 10.30am. There is also a weekly yoga class from 6pm to 7.30pm on Thursdays.
