DAMAGED 100-year-old tiles are due to be replaced at a hall.

It comes as Brodrick Hall, in Clayhall Road, Gosport, won a £3,000 grant for roof repairs.

The management committee was given the cash by Hampshire County Council after the roof was damaged in the winter storms.

Installing new tiles will prevent further damage to the building and protect playgroup and other equipment stored in the building.

The cash came from the county council’s culture, recreation and heritage budget. Councillor Keith Chapman is in charge of that department and gave cash to other projects as well.

He said: ‘I’m pleased the county council is able to support these groups by making a contribution to the cost of building repairs or improvements to make the facilities better for the local community.

‘This will ensure that the range and rich variety of classes and groups can continue benefiting many Hampshire residents. I wish all the communities every success with their projects.’
