Litton and Thorner's Community Hall (LATCH)

The hall was built in 2009 and has many of the features expected of a modern hall.  A sprung wooden floor with a non-slip surface that includes under-floor ground-source heating provides a comfortable environment - excellent for dancing!  For those events which require subdued lighting a fully controllable lighting system is installed.  From the main hall four French doors lead onto the patio and grassed areas with panoramic views across the Bride Valley.
