St Lawrence: Village hall officially opened
St Lawrence’s own village hall was officially opened last week after over a decade of fundraising efforts.
Hundreds of people turned up to the hall’s grand opening on Saturday, which saw Ray Clark from BBC Radio Essex introduce the event.
The pre-made community hub, which was hoisted into place in July, was officially opened at 2pm by Sid Williams who own The Dairy Store in the village, marking the beginning of the celebrations.
Mr Williams had raised over £8,000 in spare change at the shop to put towards building the village hall in Jubilee Field.
Entertainment included music, bouncy castles and a military vehicle display.
