Following the Village Hall AGM and subsequent management meeting there have been several changes to the management team.  Susan Parker Johnson and Michael Vaughan have stepped down from their roles as chairman and treasurer respectively. Howard Burr has taken on the role of chairman and Diana Crane is the new treasurer.  Margaret Reynolds has taken over secretary duties from Diana.  We extend a warm welcome to Lynn Vaughan who has joined the management team.

Your village hall needs you

Are you able to offer your help to manage the village hall ?

Committee members and volunteers are needed to help with:

Health & Safety
Book Keeping

As a committee member you should have access to a computer and email, you can expect to spend about 10 hours per month on village hall activity. If you would like to help the village hall but  are not able to commit that much time then would you be willing to volunteer just 2 or 3 hours a month ?

To find out what’s involved or to offer help contact Phil on 771 257 or 07710 620483 or send an email to
