I loved this little hall. A brick building with a dance floor, stage, kitchen and meeting rooms. In the US we call it a Grange Hall. Obviously the center of the community, according to the bulletin board it is a very busy place, hosting everything from dances, dance lessons, karate, dog shows and flower shows to name a few events.
The hall is located in a beautiful park where people gathered on this Saturday to play soccer, walk their dogs, play with their kids, or just sit and enjoy. Being spring, the flowers were beginning to bloom and people were coming out of their homes and enjoying the relatively nice weather.
If one closes his eyes he can imagine, a small dance band, small groups of people chatting and James and Helen meeting at the Saturday night dance in a scene from "All Creatures Great And Small."
