Shipham Village Hall News for Feb 2019


The hall has been well used in the last few months with plenty of parties, quizzes, and the first New Year’s celebration for some time and the panto were particularly popular.

There has been a major overhaul of the hall’s heating system with some modifications applied. We hope this has overcome the problems experienced last winter and the hall is now staying cosy. We are running heating continuously at present, monitoring hourly temperatures and assessing the cost.Please help to reduce costs and maintain the temperatures required by two simple actions at the end of a hire would you please close the curtains and also adjust radiator valves that have been turned down back to levels 4/5 or max so the next users do not shiver.

You may have noticed the patio planters have been emptied and replaced with new top soil and compost. Once the harsh winter conditions have gone a bark top dressing will be added and they will be replanted to give an all year round interest.

Once the weather improves both areas of matting in the childrens’ play area are to be replaced and during the works the play area will be totally closed to anyone other than the workers. Notices confirming the dates it will be closed will be displayed on the fencing and/or gate. Please be sure any of your children that may sometimes use it without supervision are aware of the danger and know to stay away.

On Sunday, 3rd March we will be hosting a ‘Clubs and Societies Event’. Join us at the hall between 2-5pm to discover the wide variety of activities offered by the organisations in and around thevillage. There’ll be more than a dozen stalls sharing information about what they do – as well as getting to know what goes on; you may find something that you can sign up for. Refreshments will be available. For more information or, if you would like to run a stall at the event, please contact Steve Dodd on 843660 (Go to www.shiphamhall.co.uk/whats-on/regular-group-meetings to see the meeting times of organisations)

The AGM of the hall trust will be in the George Thiery room at the Hall at 8pm on 16th April. All villagers are welcome to attend. (Look out for the more detailed notice)
