Village Hall, Club Room and Playing Field News - 15th March 2020

Hall News

Daniel Evans is exploring the possibly of a sponsored bike ride to Thurne on 27 June 2020 following the route David Thompson would have taken as a Postman in the 1950/60's. Riders can raise sponsor money for there own preferred charity. Further details to follow. New hand dryers have been installed in the toilets andand a missing table from the Club Room replaced



New hand dryers have been installed in the toilets.  A new floodlight has been installed in front of the Club Room. The broken drain cover on the car park has been replaced with a metal cover. Alma Iron craft have straightened the gate post and replaced the Height Barrier. Fennells have completed the fan repairs. The lack of power was due to key in the wall in the OFF position. This key is normally kept in a pot in the cupboard above the dishwasher. The fans are set on automatic. If the temperature is too high the louvres open and the top fan extracts hot air. If too cold, the the bottom fan comes on and pushes the hot air downwards. There should be no need to touch the controls.


Play Equipment

The Committee met with potential play equipment suppliers on 20th Jan to discuss provision of new items for younger children. The Committee have agreed the purchase of 3 items including a large piece of multiplay equipment. These ar expected to be in place bt the end of April.



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.


Phone System

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.
