BIGHTON Village Hall has been boosted by a £5,000 grant towards the repair and improvement of drainage to cope with run-off from a neighbouring car park.
Flood water currently seeps under the hall through air bricks and risks causing significant and costly damage.
County Council’s executive member for culture, recreation and countryside, Cllr Andrew Gibson has included Bighton in a tranche of grants to village organisations, totalling £60,000.
