West Malvern Village Hall
Annual Committee Report 2017
Despite its age and lack of parking facilities the Hall continues to be a useful and much loved part of West Malvern life, both for those who live here and those who visit to take part in the various groups who enjoy the space it provides. Among its users we can see a range of activities, from painting to Pilates, circle dance to craft fairs,, singing, toddler group and garden club. The monthly coffee mornings continue, to be fairly well attended, and the 100 club is thriving under the stewardship of Jenny Burford. Recently the village staged a very successful ‘Night of Varieties’ starring local residents - what a talented lot they are!
The committee lost a member this year when John Mast retired, thank you for your years of input John, we hope you enjoy your next project! When John left we needed a new Hall website, so his brains were well and truly picked by Jen Close, our Bookings Officer, as she constructed ‘westmalvernvillagehall.org' site to use for bookings and Hall information. Three cheers Jen!!! Our handyman David Semple continues to keep the Hall tidy for us, occasionally (once this year) the committee get together to deep clean all the nooks and crannies, and our Treasurer, Rob Crawford does double duty as the ‘go to’ to arrange anything that needs professional input like electrics.
There are still ways in which we are looking to improve the Hall. New, small tables for events serving refreshments, portable ‘blow’ heaters to back up the heating and improved signage are some of the items under consideration. As a committee we do need more members to help us keep the Hall fit for community use. We only meet every other month for about an hour (ish), so if you love your Hall, do join us!
Lastly thanks to all those involved in the work that keeps the Hall for the use of the local community.
