Village Hall New Lighting

The Village Hall Committee want to improve the lighting in the hall
 by fitting LED bulbs and lowering the fittings.
These changes will make the lighting better, safer and cheaper.

We've applied to Galaxy Hot Chocolate to enter their fund
 and the prize is £300.

There are 2 ways we might win:
random selection like Lotto or People's Choice.

 and ask your friends to vote as well.
