The next phase of redevlopment at the former Royal British Legion in Lakenheath will get underway on Saturday with a celebration event in the club’s grounds.

Supported by Forest Heath District Council, the event from 12pm to 4pm will see the launch of a survey to gain suggestions for the hall’s new use.

The People’s Project in Lakenheath, run by the Lakenheath Peace Memorial Hall Committee, won a bid to buy the empty club building in the High Street earlier this summer.

Cllr Colin Noble, Forest Heath district councillor for Lakenheath, has given £500 from his locality budget to help fund the celebration event.

Annette Brooks, chairman of Lakenheath Peace Memorial Hall, said: “We are excited about starting work on the next stage of this project.”
