By the 1970s, the extension built in the 1920s was looking shabby. Sir Francis Pemberton
offered a loan to rebuild the extension and include a small kitchen and cloakrooms. Opened in
1977, the Jubilee Room was intended to be mainly for young people. Councillor Jane Brookes
hastily organised a Jubilee Féte in 1977 to start paying back the loan. Further fundraising fétes
were held in 1978 and 1979.
