090/21 Village Hall Report
New tables and chairs were purchased in May which are lighter and so easier to move for those hiring the hall.
Revenue of £191 was generated from the sale of the old tables and chairs thanks to Sally who advertised and arranged the sale.
The hall floor was refurbished in July. This will extend the life of the wooden floor which had become damaged and worn over time.
With immediate effect the evening hall hire will now be £9 per hour, the same as the afternoon hall hire cost, instead of £10 per hour.
Covid posters relating to hand washing, the QR code and other Covid precautions are still in place ensuring the best safety procedures are still in place for hall users.
