Fenland village hall to be reopened by MP Liz Truss
Three Holes hall damaged by arson after break-in will open in November
A Fenland village hall hit by an arson attack will be reopened by SW Norfolk MP Liz Truss.
The hall at Three Holes, near Wisbech, was badly damaged earlier this year.
A break-in and fire in April meant the hall was left unusable and a major repair project was carried out.
Many regular events had to be temporarily relocated to other venues in the area while work was carried out to repair the damage.
But the updated hall is due to be officially opened on Saturday, November 26 by Ms Truss.
There will be a party atmosphere for the reopening and residents are being asked to take part.

The committee would like any photographs or accounts of activities in the hall to use in a display.
The hall opened in 1952 and organisers hope many people will still have pictures from celebrations, including birthday parties and weddings.
There are also plans for a children's competition and they are being invited to submit drawings or paintings to mark the re-opening.
The winning entries will be part of a permanent display in the all while all entries will be kept in a village scrapbook.
The hall will be officially handed-over to the committee on November 17. A music and dance evening is planned for November 19 from 8pm.
