Re-Dedication Of The Hall

The Bansfield Benefice Hall was re-dedicated on the 9th January 2011 following the benefice service in All Saints' church. The money for this project was donated from a bequest made from the Will of Mrs Freda May Fenton. A dedication plaque was unveiled in the Hall by Freda's niece, Mrs Diana Clarke, following a short speech in which she talked about the life of Mrs Fenton and her affection for Wickhambrook village and its church. She went on to say how much Freda would have appreciated her legacy being used for this purpose. In addition to financing the hall refurbishment the legacy paid for the relaying on the church car park, hymn books and charitable giving. Over 50 people attended the ceremony inside a packed hall on a bright winter's day.
