After years of planning, fund-raising and above all, patience, work has finally begun on building a new Village Hall for Kenninghall. Hard to believe perhaps but here below are two photos taken of a 'close encounter' with a small mountain of earth that has appeared on the site as the contractors clear it in order to begin work. Will we be celebrating the completion in 5 months time on 2016's longest day? Let's hope so!
