The Sid Vale Association’s Keith Owen Fund donated £6,100 to the project, half the total needed to refurbish the facility.

A SVA spokesman added: “A kitchen was added to the hall many years ago and after much use, the furniture and fittings were in obvious need of replacement.

“It was soon realised that the cost of the refurbishment would seriously deplete the hall’s available funds, leaving little for emergencies, and so applications for grants were made.”

The committee were able to go ahead with their project after match funding the SVA total and receiving a financial boost from Sidmouth Town Council. Its members said they were thankful for the donations after opening their new kitchen on August 10.
