A HALL that is being restored to its former glory has been handed a £50,000 cash boost.

The Hastoe Village Hall Trust has been granted the money from the Chiltern Leader Fund, taking its fundraising total to £127,000.

Chairman David Ridgwell said: “The grant will enable a total upgrade of the hall, including heating, rewiring, new toilets and disabled facilities. Work should be completed by autumn.”

The hall, built in 1898, has already had its library and kitchen refurbished.
