The Dorset Echo reported that, "The Village Hall Committee at Stratton threw a party last week to celebrate the completion of the second stage of a hall improvement programme that cost them over £5,600. The 82-year-old hall has been given a new roof costing around £3,000, the ceiling lowered to save on heating costs and four new fan heaters fitted. This follows earlier improvements which included the provision of modern kitchen facilities.

At the party which followed the annual meeting of the hall committee were people who have assisted in the improvement programme. They are pictured [above]. (L to R): Geoffrey David, Chairman of Stratton Parish Council; Christopher Pope, Chairman of Stratton Village Hall; Lord & Lady Digby, County & District Councillors for the parish; Philip Toogood, Secretary of Stratton Village Hall."
