The Lansdowne Community Hall Trustees have recently completed the task of having concrete pathways constructed around the hall.

This was made possible by some new funding from the 2016 Community Building Partnership Grant.

The footpath at the side of the hall has been extended to the full length of the hall and there is a new concrete pathway from the storage shed to the hall.

The second part of the concrete works carried out was the area from the hall garage up to  the side of the hall
