READING ROOM RENOVATIONS BEGIN in 2008

Reading Room Website 2013

At a small ceremony inside the Reading Room, Market Street, the Rev'd Mick Williams passed over the keys to Contractors.   They will now undertake complete internal and some external renovation of the Reading Room to bring it up to date so it can provide improved community facilities for the people of Penkridge of all ages.  Present at the ceremony were representatives of several organisations, including the Parish Council and the Business Association, who have helped finance the project.  Bob Stokes, who prepared the Business Plan and organised the project and fund raising, was present, as were the Architects, the Builders, and the Rev'd Caroline Plant, Team Vicar. 

Below are a few photographs I took at the Re-Opening.   Rev'd Mick said he hoped the re-opening Ceremony would be some time in November.
NO!  I don't think Rev'd Mick or Bob Stokes are going to be using those shovels!
