Village Hall Update


We have now been able to stage a number of events in the new hall. January is about using the hall and learning how it works; getting all the appropriate policies and procedures in place; working through the snagging list and gearing up for more activity in February and beyond.

In February many of the regular clubs and activities will have their first meetings in the hall as well as a number of new activities.

There are still a number of areas where further funding will be required and we are working to prioritise and secure funding for these. One of these areas will be the landscaping around the hall and our plan here is to make sure everything is tidy and to give ourselves the chance to get used to the hall and then plan the landscaping later in the year.

An area to mention is the Pathway to Success which will be along the front of the building between the part of the hall nearest the road and the verge. We plan to lay this before the summer.

Following the AGM in October we have now added 4 co-opted trustees. These are John Ovenston who continues his involvement and Zoe Lodge, Gila Robinson and Jeremy Walker who join as new trustees. We have also been offered support from Emma Hunt who will look after advertising and publicity.

All committee members have defined responsibilities and we will be updating the website soon to reflect these. In particular Zoe Lodge is the Bookings Secretary and is responsible for hall hire.
