The grand opening of the newly- refurbished Cononley Village Institute took place on Saturday.
Julian Brown, chairman of the institute management committee, thanked the architects, Nuttall, Yarwood and Partners, and building contractor, Enoch Harrison and Son Ltd, for their work and committee members for their efforts in developing the proposals and gaining funding. And he thanked the community for their support, especially in raising a third of the money needed.
One of the oldest residents, Ellen Kingsbury, and two of the most recent arrivals, three-month-old Violet Long Guest and four-month-old Marcus Gibbons, cut the ribbon to officially open the building.
In the evening more than 80 people attended a dinner and disco, enjoying the unique Cononley Sausage Cassoulet and celebrating the occasion in style.
