While the Village Hall is there for everyone in our community, certain groups use it more regularly than others. Many of these groups run their meetings in line with School terms, so at this time of year many regular user groups are coming back to use the Hall for the first time since the summer break.
I hope that they will find some good changes from when they last used the Hall in July as over the summer we have made interior improvements to complement the car park resurfacing that happened in June.
First the hall has been redecorated throughout. This work was undertaken by a local professional decorating company PHS Decorating and I am sure that when you see the result you will appreciate the care and effort they took in decorating our hall.
Second, following on from some upgrades done to the heating system last year and in order to help the pre-school meet safety requirements, the radiators in most of the hall have been replaced with Low Surface Temperature radiators. Not only does it meet the safety requirements but new radiators have also helped with the appearance of the main hall.
There remain a few additional items that we are working through now, such as new curtains but we hope to have these completed well before Christmas.
As ever there have been contributions from many individuals as well as committee members and it's great to see folk offering their time for free to help the hall. So thank you to everyone that has contributed.
These things do require some management however and once again I'd like to thank Gordon MacPherson who has spent a lot of time leading a small team through the many stages required to get us to the end.
Thanks also to the Pre-school for sharing the cost of provision of the new radiators.
One other thing to note, over the summer Nigel Kelly has taken on the role of part time caretaker.
He will be supported in some areas by the rest of the committee and when he is away again committee members will work to cover the activities that Nigel does in the role. So many thanks for taking this on Nigel.
If there's anyone else out there that would like to share this with Nigel, we are always glad to have volunteer helpers, so please contact us.
