Metheringham Village Hall Update Summer 2012

Firstly I would like to thank the outgoing Executive Committee, who have run the Village Hall over the last few years and now feel it is time to step down and enjoy a well earned rest. Jenni Honisett has worked tirelessly as Chairman, Dot Howes as Secretary and Gwyneth Holland as Treasurer.

A big round of applause is needed for all their efforts to keep this very important village asset running.

Having now stepped into the role of Chairman I would like to thank everyone for the help and support they have given me in these early weeks.

Our customers, which is you 'the village', deserve a good facility, which is clean, safe, has modern facilities and is run smoothly and efficiently. Our new Committee will endeavour to keep Metheringham village hall as a place to be proud of and we will be looking to do all the above and continue to look for ways to improve your facility.

I am grateful for Gwyneth Holland who will now take on the role of Fund Raising Facilitator and will continue to raise funds so that we can endeavour to improve the building and its contents. Already there are various fund raising events scheduled on a regular basis. The Hub is one such event which is held on the fourth Thursday in every month from 2:30 - 4:30. This is where you can pop into the hall, buy some green groceries, swap a book, have your hair cut or have a nice cup of tea and homemade cake. There is also a fishmonger and butcher who come to the village hall car park. Already it is proving very popular and it is a chance for the villagers to meet up and have a chat.

New Age Kurling is held every Friday evening. This too is proving very popular for all ages and again this is a fund-raiser for the hall.

If you have any ideas of how we can improve our service to you, please contact me. We, as a committee, cannot put things right if we do not know what is wrong in the first place. What would you like from your village hall? How do you see the village hall over the next 5 years? Would you like to see improvements and what would they be?

You can ring me on 01526 321289 or email me on willowshome@hotmail.co.uk
Thank you and I look forward to seeing you in our Village Hall

Sally Wilson (Chair)
