Village Hall Committee

I am delighted to welcome Clare Lonsdale, Martin Lonsdale and Michael Senior who have all now joined the Hall Committee. We look forward to working with them to take forward the work of running our Hall.

Sadly, we have said farewell to two long serving members, Sheila Armistead and Paul Killingbeck, who have stood down from Committee work. They both go with our very best wishes and our grateful appreciation of their invaluable contributions to the work of the Committee over so many years.

Hall Charges

The Hall Committee is always mindful to strike the right balance between covering the running costs of the Hall, setting aside some reserves to cover longer term liabilities (e.g. replacing appliances, re-wiring or re-plumbing) and keeping charges reasonable to enable as many members of our community as possible to access the Hall and its fantastic facilities.

We have managed to hold our Hire Charges at the current level since September 2011 but, inevitably, we must now increase our charges to cover increased costs of running the Hall.

The increases will be in two stages approx. 5% increase from 1st October and another 5% as from 1st April 2023. The second 5% is in anticipation of a very significant increase in electricity costs as our current fixed price Electricity Supply contract expires on 31st March 2023.

A new schedule of Hire Charges is available from our Bookings Secretary. Details can also be found on our website and online booking system.

The Hall is a Registered Charity and operates on a strictly “not for profit” basis .

Coronavirus (Covid-19)

Please continue to take sensible precautions when using the Hall to protect yourselves and other users.  Hand sanitisers are provided in the Hall entrance lobby – please use them.

Please do what you can to make our hall safe from Covid infection.
