Work is now under way at the village hall preparing it for demolition..
Contractors have been on site during the start of July, preparing for the knock-down of the current building. The contents have now been removed along with the out-side paving - pathway being taken up.
The site will be closed off completely to public access while the works are in progress.
It is expected to take around 6 or 9 months to knock down the old building and rebuild a new village hall.
Hale Parish Council was awarded £500.000 by the National Lottery, in late 2015, to rebuild the village hall.
