THE New Row Residents' Association of Mylor has donated £50 to the village's Tremayne Hall Restoration Fund.
The association, which was formed 10 years ago, charges its members a fee of £1 per household per year and over the years that money has built up. As a result, it was decided at the group's recent annual meeting that the donation should be made to the committee which is endeavouring to raise the money necessary to refurbish the hall.
Dorrit Smith, a member of the association, said of the donation: "It will help to ensure that grants already mooted will materialise.
"It will also help the Tremayne Hall committee to ensure that the inside refurbishments are of the best.
"The New Row residents wish the committee all the very best of luck with their efforts on behalf of the hall and look forward to seeing the facilities benefiting the village once again."
The residents' association was set up for the mutual help and benefit of those living or having a property on the Row.
"It has proved its worth, time and time again, both socially and where help has been required," added Mrs Smith. We recommend the idea to all residential streets in the area.
"We produce a small handbook for members, a list of items which members can provide if help is required and we hold a couple of social functions each year."
