From the local press

This made me smile:

"The church bewails its tiny congregations and the village hall runs functions merely to raise funds to keep the hall going, so that it can
run functions to raise funds to keep the village hall standing; a never-ending spiral"

Sadly this is true of a lot of small villages but we all cling to an important piece of village life regardless of wider purpose. I'd be horrified if our village hall disappeared but as Malcolm states - it's difficult to see why it's there apart from as a historic monument. The porch on the village hall was paid for by Joseph Conrad so it has "real" history.

Read the rest of Malcolm's report on the parish council meeting on the Kent Online site.
