MUSTON VILLAGE HALL
Although never intended at the start, our festival has allowed our little village to raise some money that is used for the benefit of our village. The festival is organised by Muston Millennium Committee and any money raised during the festival is managed by the committee.
In the last 18 months we have been able to support our village hall by funding improvements to the hall. The former snooker room has been changed into a meeting room and was decorated and had a new carpet fitted. It is now a comfortable room for meetings or for small groups to meet and is also a pleasant lounge/bar area for functions. A much needed new front door has been installed and this has been part funded by the festival.
The biggest project this year was the full renovation of the kitchen. A new outward opening rear door was fitted giving more space, all new cupboards and worktops, new lighting, new commercial standard flooring, new range cooker and dishwasher and new water heating system. Under unit heating has been installed with new extractor fans added as well. The whole electrical system of the hall has been updated along with new emergency lighting. It really is a pleasant looking and well equipped kitchen and one that should serve our community well. This would not be possible without our festival.
Each year the Millennium Committee is able to release some funds to be used for the benefit of the village and the residents. The Parish Council receive financial assistance to pay for extra grass cutting around the village and essential repairs to areas such as the village green. Our wonderful volunteers at Muston In Bloom are supported by donations that allow them to continue their fantastic work with beautiful flowers all around the village and regular litter picks. Our cricket team who work hard on the car parking field during the festival, receive financial support with some projects. A family group called 'Muston Munchkins' is funded by the organising committee. None of this would be possible without our festival.
