A MAN who found notoriety for selling hangman's gallows abroad has just finished building a stage for Queen Adelaide Village Hall.

David Lucas, who runs Eldon Farms Supplies in Hollywell Row, near Mildenhall, recently started a national campaign for rural Britain.

The stage will be used for bingo and a variety of shows.
