A £14,000 award from the Scottish Landfill Communities Fund will be used for essential
building work to Tong Hall in Lewis.
The funding is part of ongoing plans to renovate and develop the premises which hosts
regular gatherings of the local toddler group, youth club and seniors citizen’s club.
Hall chair Kenny Macphail said: “For decades the hall has provided support for the
village and we are delighted to be working to ensure the hall will continue to host
youth club, support the local school and, in the future, develop new opportunities
for everyone in Tong and the surrounding areas.”
The hall will also be included in Tesco’s forthcoming ‘Bags for Help’ campaign. If
successful the funding will renovate new areas of the hall and purchase new film
equipment, PA system and computer.
