The Armadale Committee’s original plan was to refurbish the existing village hall, which was looking a ‘bit sorry for itself after a lack of maintenance.’  However, they soon discovered the only thing holding the main hall floor up was bits of wood and rocks so were advised they would need to take it down completely and start from scratch.
