At last week's meeting, final arrangements were made for the annual Bonfire and Firework display on 3rd November. The final design of the plaque for "The David Thompson Room" was agreed and it is hopefully to be unvieled at the Childrens party on the 8th December . 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.A date for the New Year Diary is Saturday 11th January when we have the Village Ceilidh, raising money for the School, Church, Bloom and Playing Field. Doors open at 6pm, Dancing starts at 7pm. The committee are also looking at new hand dryers in the toilets and a new Christmas Tree and decorations for the Hall.
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.
