The Hall encourage everyone to get involved with their village and community.
Digby War Memorial Hall was built in 1966 and opened in 1967. However, the hall has not been updated throughout that time until last year when commenced a comprehensive programme of refurbishment. Through fundraising and grant applications the building is now wind and water-tight. It also has replaced wiring and heating. The donation from Riungrose Law has been used on the kitchen, an essential part of the use of the Hall.
Digby War Memorial Hall is at the centre of the community and is a vital asset to a small, rural village with limited transport links. However the hall is showing its age and is in the middle of a comprehensive refurbishment. There is much to be done including updating and ensuring that both the bar area and kitchen are fit for purpose and available along with the rest of the hall for future generations.
Preservation of the hall for the community is without a doubt ‘A Grand Idea’.
