Did you know that Lyonshall Memorial Hall is one of three local charities benefitting from the Kington Co-op Community Fund until October 2018?
If you have a Co-op Membership card, every 1% of what you spend on Co-op own brand products, plus money from shopping bag sales, is given
to Community projects like ours.
You can choose which cause your 1% goes to, so if you would like to back the Memorial Hall go to membership.coop.co.uk and select Lyonshall
Memorial Hall. We have already been allocated over £350 from the fund after the first quarter of the scheme.
Our aim is to update, improve and renovate our Memorial Hall over the next few years
This is a poignant year to commemorate the 100 year Anniversary of the Great War for which the Memorial Hall was built, to remember the
