PLANS to refurbish a village hall have been given a financial boost with the award of a county council grant.
County Cllr Richard Thake has given �3,000 to the trustees of Kimpton Memorial Hall to renew badly-worn flooring at the venue.
A total of �65,000 is needed to refurbish the building, which is located in Hall Lane.
The �3,000 has been allocated from Cllr Thake's locality budget - a pot of �10,000 he can spend on worthwhile community projects.
