MORE than �10,000 has been raised to go towards the modernisation of Lympstone's village hall.

The amount has been collected through personal donations, a village lottery event and a number of other fundraising ventures, organised by different groups and societies.

The hall is in need of critical repair work - refurbishment which is likely to amount to around �90,000.

Jill Wilson, coordinator of the fundraising committee, said there were several events coming up to keep the money rolling in.

"We are hoping to raise another �3000 by June through a concert by The Shantymen; a wine tasting evening, an Ellingtonia concert and an open garden event with cream tea.

"There will be a Greek meal with a screening of Mama Mia and audience in appropriate costume; scrabble evening, bridge evening with supper, and last but not least a sponsored swim by someone in the village who hopes to raise �500!"
