  • Lechlade Memorial Hall Fundraising

    “The night of Sunday 8th May 2016 will forever remain in the memory of Lechlade residents. That night the heart of our Community, the much loved Lechlade Memorial Hall, was completely destroyed by arson. We need to fundraise to build a bigger and better hall to meet both the current and future needs of the residents of Lechlade and the surrounding area.”
    Steve Trotter, Mayor of Lechlade and Simon Paul, Chair of Lechlade Memorial Hall & Recreation Ground Charity (Charity No. 1056163).
