The new-look hall features a number of state-of-the-art facilities, including an environmentally friendly lighting system which maintains the same level of light in the hall at all times.

Other new features include an induction loop hearing system and improved heating.

The hall has also been re-painted in bright, fresh colours.

The work was made possible through more than £80,000 of grants from the Community Fund, Suffolk coastal district council and Martlesham Parish council.
