In 2012/13 the kitchen at Ilmington Village Hall was given a makeover, including an extension and complete refit. Facilities include eye-level oven and grill, island units, double sink, fridge, freezer and plenty of workspace for catering. Funds for the project have been raised through grants, including from the Lottery, as well as from many community events. The committee is pleased to announce that the new kitchen is now paid for and would like to thank everyone who has helped with, attended and otherwise supported fundraising events. Any kitchen funds raised now will be used for additional pieces of kitchen equipment but there is already great feedback from users about the upgraded facilities on offer.
