Remember around early 1970's rewirng and installing new flourescent lighting in the hall and extra power points on the stage. Remember getting a rather strong electric shock at the time and finding out that the Electricity Board had connected the overhead cables into the Hall the wrong way round !

the institute building was demolished about 2006 and had been burned a few times by rogues. it was then brought by my father in law , mr J Harrison of fowler avenue and he extended his garden over the land and sold some to a developer who built 2 houses on the land.
