As with most charities we recognise the ongoing difficulty that there is in recruiting volunteers. A significant concern of potential trustees is the personal liability that attaches to them and to assuage we are delighted to announce that we have now achieved our ambition of becoming an Incorporated Charity (CIO).
The delayed end of Covid restrictions has meant that some of our planned events have been deferred; however, we hope that you were able to come and enjoy the last book sale and made some bargain purchases from our huge and regularly updated stock of books and jigsaws. There will be another sale at the end of July and to give you something to look forward to we are planning a Harvest supper at the end of September/early October. We will host this together with the Community Growers and thus again ensure all the produce used is locally sourced
Reroofing of porch and kitchen is nearing completion and we expect work to the store room roof to be finished during July. This marks the half way point in our ten year programme to update and improve the Hall and we are now beginning to firm up our exiting proposals for the next five years. Budgets, programmes and funding projections are being “inked in” with the aim of ensuring this amazing village asset is available, viable and attractive into the future.
