Sir George joined the Trustees of Thruxton Village Hall in the garden of Mandy Treneer-Michell's home for a fund-raising event for Thruxton Village Hall.
"The Village Hall is a listed building, which needs about £300,000 spent on it to make it appropriate for modern day use. The Trustees are planning to apply for Lottery Funding, but the village will need to raise several thousand pounds of their own. They are making good progress and I have promised to help them in whatever way I can."

Background information
The Trustees of our Village Hall are making efforts to raise funds toward the total restoration of the village hall, which they hope will be funded by the Lottery Grants Board. The Hall is a Grade II listed Georgian building built in 1817 as a Methodist Church.
It was left to the villagers of Thruxton in 1945 as a War Memorial Hall to the men of Thruxton who died in two world wars.
