A VILLAGE hall in Norfolk will celebrate more than just successful crops at this year's harvest festival, after it secured £42,500 in funding for new facilities.

Grants from WREN, Breckland District Council, Norfolk Rural Community Council and Croxton Parish Council have made it possible to install a new kitchen and toilets at Croxton village hall, as well as double glazing and a more efficient heating system.

The hall received a grant to build a new play area in 2008, which became so successful that upgrades to the building's kitchen and toilets became necessary.

The changes will be officially opened at the annual Church Harvest Supper on Saturday September 26 at 7pm.

Cutting the ribbon on the evening will be David Napier, the son-in-law of Lady Musker, who originally opened the village hall in 1980.

Tickets for the supper are available for £7.50 from the village shop.

Proceeds from the event will go towards refurbishment of All Saints Church in Croxton, which is expected to cost £105,000.
