At last weeks committee meeting, final arrangements were made for the fortcoming fete on 26 August and Fireworks on 3 November. Results of the Playground survey expressed a need to revamp existing play equipment and instal new equipment for younger children. As a result the committee are meeting a representative from the Borough Council on Thursday 29th August to discuss options. A suggestion was made to see if there was any interest in starting Walking Football, if you are interested in playing or organising this activity call 01493 369250. The committee also confirmed the main room in the Hall is to be called"The David Thompson Room", with a plaque above the door, recognising David's contribution not only to Filby Playing Field, but other organisations he was involved with throughout his life. General maintance issues with the Solar panels, extractor fan and hot water will be dealt with in the coming week. The Village Ceilidh was confirmed to be on Saturday 11th January 2020 in the Hall, raising money for the School, Church, Hall and In Bloom.
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.
