Future of the Village Hall

You may be aware that proposals for a new village hall had been 'in the air' since early 2014. The elected Trustees promised at the AGM to put a range of options on the table for consideration.
That process completed resulting in a new extension to the rear. The success of the extension has meant that many new user groups have been accommodated at the village hall is self financing.
The community and especially the Events Team continues to run profitable activities.
The Village Hall Committee is putting these surplus funds to use by working through a continuously updated improvements list.

General refurbishment of the existing main hall will take place as funds allow.

A Field Room (phase 2) will be built when funds allow.

The village hall's primary purpose is the provision of a meeting place for the community. This is actually quite a price sensitive activity and requires income from other sources if the building is to be kept up to date and in good condition.
The land and buildings and any other assets have been protected by a Trust deed and it is the duty of the Trustees to protect these assets for the continued benefit of the community.
  • Assets  cannot simply be sold for cash. 
  • If assets are sold then they must be replaced by an at-least equivalent asset.
  • The future value of assets must be considered before disposal.
In this context, sale of land for building, as previously proposed, would be difficult to justify if other means of financing refurbishment / rebuilding were possible.

With the much appreciated energy and support of villagers the Management Committee is pleased to announce that due to a healthy events programme, the Village Hall is projecting a profit on activities for the year.
