Pett Village Hall Logo: Pett Village Hall Management Committee is thrilled to bits that the heating is mended and that there is now a beautiful wooden floor. The Committee wants to brighten up the image of the Hall with a new logo. The original version, which some of you may have seen, was designed to welcome the Hall at the millennium. On close examination, the drawing was not even our Hall!

Villagers are invited to design a simple logo, which can be used on paperwork and the Village hall website to reflect truly the future of our Hall. Please send all designs to the PVH Secretary, Sarah Adams by August 30. Details in Pett Parish News.
