Village hall Newsletter

January 2017


Firstly may the trustees of the village hall wish all a very happy new year.  Our New Year resolution is to make the hall a more interesting place to visit this year and soon you will have delivered a calendar of this year’s events that will be happening in the hall.


The school use the hall daily in the week as a gym but there are still plenty of hours left in which the hall can be hired by the general public for private parties or events.  Contact with the booking clerk will ascertain if the day you would like is free and what the cost would be.   Saturdays are the dearest day but there is a day rate of £130 for the hours from 1800 to midnight saving nearly £30 on the hourly rate for local residents and also the 3 hours on a Saturday afternoon for a children’s party of £30.


The trustee meetings are normally on the last Thursday of the month unless otherwise announced and all members of the public are welcome to come and see what is being arranged.  There is an AGM held in the main hall in April each year; this year the date being the 27th when a synopsis of the previous year is given and the entire village is invited.  This will be confirmed closer to the date and we hope to have a small buffet and the bar open on that night.


As usual we are in need of additional trustees to join us in running the hall even if only with offers of assistance at different functions.  Any of the trustees can be contacted for further information the only restriction is that trustees (present names and contact details below) must be over 18 years old and financially stable but these restrictions do not apply when offering assistance.


February 10th is a Valentine’s Day themed tombola at which children are invited with their parents or adults.


Details of these will be circulated round the village for which again we need volunteers to deliver flyers to each property; perhaps a volunteer from each road in the village to deliver to their own neighbours.

Please contact one of the trustees if you can help in any way.
