Welcomed by the Privy Council to St Alban's Church, the Bishop of Chester led prayers of dedication at the official opening of 'The Vault'.
With just a little formality, the evening was a combination of wine, delicious refreshments and an opportunity for all of those in attendance to chat and to view displays of the various activities and milestone events that have taken place during three long years of fund raising.
The evening started with a chime and ended with a bang.
The bell ringers providing the chimes and a magnificent firework display provided the bang!!
And, no celebration is complete without a cake – take a look at that image!!
So, the vision has become a reality and for that we thank you all.
We now look forward to welcoming everyone to our official village 'Open Day' on Saturday 21 May (10am-5pm) when you can all see what a fantastic community venue is now available within our village.
