More than 40 supporters, friends and parishioners assembled in the Jubilee Hall on 1st March 2013, to witness the official opening of the new store-room, and the refurbished toilets and kitchen. Hall Management Committee Treasurer, Jasmina, who had played a lead role in procuring grants and overseeing the refurbishment process, started proceedings with a brief review of the work carried out. This was followed by some words from Liz, the newly elected Committee Chairman, who, on behalf of all the committee thanked everyone who had contributed to the recent developments at the Hall (see refurbishment).
The official opening then took place, with the ceremonial cutting of ribbons: the new storeroom was opened by Jeff, who had made the land available for its construction; the new toilet facilities were opened by the recently retired Committee Chairman David, who had worked hard to ensure the refurbishment went smoothly; and finally the newly equipped kitchen was opened by Jasmina, who worked so hard to make sure everything was done right and in time.
A ceremonial plaque was then presented by Linda Emmett, local action group manager from East Cornwall Local Action Group, and a group photo followed.
Once the formal part of the evening was completed, everyone was free to look around the facilities, and to enjoy the refreshments offered.
