Our AGM was held on Tuesday 9th January and all the present committee confirmed they were willing to stand for a further year, for which many thanks. However, the committee is always happy to welcome new blood and if anyone feels they could spare some time to help with the running of our village hall, please contact Philip on 400609 for more information on how you could get involved.
We are also still looking for someone to fill the role of Deputy Bookings Secretary – particularly someone with an interest in setting up an on-line booking system for the Victoria Rooms. For more information, please contact Eileen, our Bookings Secretary on 400745 or Philip on 400609.
By all accounts, the stallholders at the Equestrian Table Top Sale made good sales and have asked for a similar event to be held in the spring/summer months – watch this space! Also, over £70.00 was made for Victoria Rooms’ funds.
Bingo also made a welcome return to the Victoria Rooms on 16th December with the first “eyes down” for a number of years. A great time was had by all who attended, raising nearly £350.00 for our funds. Bingo will now become a regular addition to the Victoria Rooms’ events calendar with the next session taking place on Saturday 3rd February. Why not come along – there will be loads of prizes to be won?
