Club Room Thatch
The Club Room thatched roof is being re-ridged this week, subject to weather.
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.
High Speed Broadband
The Playing Field Committee have installed high speed broadband in the Club Room and the Village Hall. Hall users should continue to use their current wifi password whilst Club Room users will need to gain access using the new password displayed there. The new system is running at about 70Mbs (approx 10x the old speed).
Children's Play Area.
A risk assessment of the area is to be conducted on children climbing trees overlooking the Bowls Club.
