Volunteers plan to take on Alford Corn Exchange
THE first phase of the plan to revitalise Alford Corn Exchange has started with a team of volunteers painting parts of the building.
Under the guidance of specialist decorators Andy Binch, John Brown and Kevin Bateman, the volunteers set to work repainting the main hall and everything in the smaller back room.
The Alford Corn Exchnage Community Group is looking at taking on the building from Alford Town Council to save it from closure.
Other voluntary work has been undertaken by joiner Richard Murray while builder Richard Dale has carried out some much needed damp proofing.

Phil Snell from the P&R Decorator Centre in Skegness has donated materials and other financial support for the decorating has been provided by web development company SteamDesk in Alford.
Harry Dewick-Eisele from the community group said: “It is fantastic how the people have rallied round. We must maintain this important community hub and improve it so that it becomes an attractive venue for future entertainment as well as educational and cultural events.”
Financial support for the overall project has been pledged by a number of businesses in the town, and as the improvements continue, it is anticipated that the building will be fully utilised and its future secured.
