THE Committee of Dolton and Dowland Village Hall has been making the most of the grants schemes currently available through Torridge District Council. In a double application, it has received a grant for �1,000 from local councillor Rosemary Lock as well as a �1,000 payout from the Community Grants scheme.Both sums have been used to improve disabled access into the popular village hall. The Women's Institute, cubs, scouts and the pre-school club all use the building and it is also host to a variety of local meetings and bingo.The committee identified a real need for improved disabled access and decided to use the grants for that purpose.Sue Jury, chairman of the hall committee, said: "Up until now the doors haven't been wide enough to get wheelchairs through, so we're delighted that now wheelchair users can enjoy the facilities of the hall the same as everyone else.
