Up & Coming Events in Paull

Official Opening of New Village Hall

Saturday 30th March 2013 was the day of the Official Opening of the New £500,000 Village Hall within Paull Village. It was a day of mixed feelings, there was great excitement that the day had finally arrived but great sadness at the fact that the man destined to conduct the official opening, Mr Dudley Hulme, had died just a few days before. Dudley, aged 92, was the one person who had done most for the Village Hall over the years and the ceremony was to be symbolic by Mr Hulme handing over the keys to the new hall to the younger children currently at the Primary School. We are most grateful to Mr Hulme’s children Dudley and Dawn who carried out the official duties on behalf of their Father.

The Observation Deck was the idea of local resident Harold Beedle who officially opened it and is seen here on the balcony with Chairman Paul Cross after the Opening.

The opening was followed by an open day giving residents to view the building and give their comments. Overall the view of the community was that the New Building exceeded their expectations. On the Saturday evening the hall held a special cabaret night which was enjoyed by all those who attended.

Sunday was another Open Day followed by a family Fun Night culminating in a splendid show of fireworks.
