At last week's AGM, Adrian Thompson was re elected Chairman and Daniel Evans the youngest committee member elected Vice Chairman. Joy Baldry was elected secretary and Richard Morris elected as Treasurer. The chairman was pleased to report the three objectives for 2018 had be achieved with the repairs to the flat roof, redecorating the Hall and rethatching the Clubroom. The aim for 2019 is to consolidate existing fundraising events and improve facillites. To this end two extra waterless urinals are being installed in the Gents toilets, a foot scraper purchace for the football teams, and new childrens play equipment and outside Gym equipment is being looked at. Also a new notice board advertizing Village Events. A Foundation, in memory of David Thompson M.B.E. is to be established whereby help can be given, each Year, at the AGM to a project in the Fleggburgh Ward of villages.
Additional storage has been established in a new shipping container by the Bowls Club.
Health & Safety
A door to the Storage Room has been damaged as a result of tables, inappropriately stacked on a table trolley. Whilst the door has been repaired, the accident could have resulted in injury to persons nearby. Hirers are cautioned only to stack tables against the supports of the trolley before moving the trolley.
Club Room Audio Induction Loop
Filby’s Club Room is, now, equipped with an audio induction loop system to assist the hard of hearing. Unfortunately, the system does not lend itself to permanent installation so it must be set up (and taken down) on each occasion that it is used. These can be undertaken in about two minutes, following the instructions here.
The Village Hall has been equipped with a telephone landline. The system comprises two ‘Big Button’ cordless handsets and a single ‘Big Button’ corded handset, which will continue to function during a powercut. All handsets are located in the kitchen. The phone system is to be used for EMERGENCY CALLS only. Hirers will be charged for any other use during their session. Anyone in difficulties using their mobile, for personal calls, is advised that a stronger signal can be obtained by stepping outside the Hall and moving towards the road. Otherwise, the hall’s high speed broadband can be used for making internet calls. Learn how.
