Continued Upgrading of Facilities

Ralli Hall continues the upgrade of Ralli Hall ‘core’ and other facilities, particularly the Great Hall and the Entrance Lobby…May 2016

Fortunately, we have just about come to the end of the heavy duty alterations to the building, having completed the modernisation of the Lower Ground Floor toilets and the Maccabi entrance, and have even found suitable occupiers for the self-contained two-room suite at the rear of the stage, now that Jacquie is sharing an office with Maxine and permanent and secure access has been provided to the loft chair store above.

As mentioned previously by Maxine, we will now concentrate on upgrading and modernising our core accommodation on the Ground Floor, so as to make it far more attractive to the members of our Community and to encourage the next generation to make it the first choice for their simchas. Ralli Hall are now the only venue in the town to offer Kosher Meat facilities, together with an enlarged Vegetarian/Fish kitchen, part of which can also be offered as a Kosher Milk facility when required.

There will, no doubt, be the usual discussions concerning the suitability of the décor when dealing with a more traditional building, and Ralli Hall is late Edwardian, having
been completed in 1913. It has also since been granted Grade 2 Listed status as a building of great architectural interest – fortunately this applies only to the two main external elevations. However, I am sure that we will come to a satisfactory conclusion and, in the not too distant future, our core accommodation will become suitable for use by our
most discerning clients so, as they say, watch this space …April 2016
