VISITORS to the Lady Emily Community Hall in Tarrington will certainly be sitting comfortably from now on.

A grand total of 150 new chairs have been purchased for the local venue, where events such as Flicks in the Sticks film screenings take place.

A spokesman said: "We have finally received our new set of chairs. They are lighter and stack better than the old ones and look much smarter. After nearly 18 years’ service, we passed on the old chairs to a music group in Hereford.

"In the end, we bought 150 new chairs and a couple of new trolleys, with about half the funds coming from our Lottery Grant and the balance from Hall re-serves resulting from fund-raising events last year. The total cost was just under £5,100."
