Chelford Village Hall AGM

Home » Newsroom » Chelford Village Hall AGM

The local residents who attended the Village Hall AGM on 28th May heard from the Chairman, Geoff Willis, that the number of bookings at the hall had increased during the year and that there was now also a wider diversity of individuals and groups using the hall. As a result, the financial position had improved and, as usual, several fundraising coffee mornings had also contributed to this situation.

Following last year's AGM, a survey, related to the Village Hall, had been distributed to local residents and feedback from the survey had been helpful to the Management Committee in highlighting several areas for improvement.

Where cost was involved in implementing these changes, estimates had now been obtained, and the Management Committee had had a varied degree of success in applying for grants to assist with improvements to the windows, the toilets and areas that are carpeted.

Kym Baskerville had joined the Management Committee during the year and her contribution had been greatly valued.

Geoff Willis then informed the meeting that, after being involved with the Management Committee for over 25 years, he would not be standing for re-election. The residents attending the meeting were informed that Sue Couling was also not standing for re-election to the Committee.

The Treasurer, John Leach then highlighted different areas within the accounts for the year which had resulted in an excess of income over expenditure of £2,009. He also referred to the proposed list of improvements but reminded the meeting that the hall does not receive funding from any external organisations and must raise the finance to implement these changes through income from bookings, from fundraising or being successful with applications for grants.

Finally three local residents, Samantha Hampson, Kiesha Humphreys and Birgit Morris, were then elected onto the Management Committee.

The 200 Club Draw, held at the conclusion of the AGM, resulted in prizes being won as follows: B Okill £350, J Williamson £265, D Cleaver £212, K Greenhill £159 and Tomlinson Parbans £74
