Village Hall News

The delays we have suffered from our architect eventually reached a culmination when she recently confirmed that she would not be able to complete our project following her move to Yorkshire earlier this year. This was very disappointing news and has left us in a real quandary as to how best to proceed. Apart from some detailed drawings from our structural engineer, we have made no real progress since May whilst waiting for the architect to complete the more detailed design drawings.

The team is therefore urgently seeking a replacement architect or chartered surveyor to take the project forward. Unfortunately this means further delay while we select the next firm and bring them up to speed with the details of the project. Watch this space!

On a separate front, we believe that the time is right for the Hall to have its own website which we feel will create a much better vehicle to keep the community informed about the modernisation and all other news about the hall.

There are a number of web hosting services that offer free hosting to UK registered charities which we can explore. What we need now is a volunteer with the right technical skills and time to help us build the website. Most of the material to start it up is already available. So if you can help us or know someone who might, please do get in touch with me (contact details below). More next month.

In the meantime, the Hall Committee and Trustees wish everyone a very happy and healthy Christmas and New Year.

Keith Carter, Chairman, Village Hall Management Committee
