Eye Town Hall could soon be hosting weddings as it searches for ways to raise funds for its running costs.

An application will be made to Suffolk County Council for a three-year license to host ceremonies, with costs at the hall currently at £15,000 to £20,000 a year. It is hoped if successful, the first weddings could be held from July.

Town Clerk Roz Barnett said: “We want to make sure we get the balance right between being good neighbours and raising revenue for the town hall.”
