Village Hall ‘Sponsor a chair’ appeal – next phase (update)

The new chairs arrived on the 24th October.  

Thank you to everyone who has sponsored a chair so far.  Chairs are still available to sponsor

*********************************************

The fundraising activities were launched at the August Social Saturday and we’ve already raised £780.00.

Thank you to all those who gave so generously.

We still need to raise about £2,000.00 to be able to purchase 60 matching chairs.

***********************************************

The next phase of the Village Hall refurbishment is the replacement of our increasingly wobbly chairs.

Village Hall – ‘Sponsor a chair’ appeal.

To do this we need to raise serious funds.  We have received a grant of £500.00 from the Parish Council, but we need to buy at least 60 chairs at £45 each.

The Village Hall has recently purchased a small number of toddle size chairs and a low table useful for children’s arts and craft work.

We’ll be holding fundraisers, but also asking village organisations, businesses and individuals if they will support us by sponsoring a chair, part of a chair, or even more than one chair.

The fundraising activities will be launched at the August Social Saturday on the 25th August.  We hope that we will have a chair to view on the day.

The Village Hall – Volunteers needed

Village Hall – volunteers needed.

The Village Hall is a real asset for the Village, bringing together the community,

It is run throughout the year entirely by volunteers.

If you have the time to be on the Village Hall Committee (meetings are held on Tuesday evenings every 6 weeks at 7.30pm).

Alternatively, be a ‘friend’ of the Village Hall helping out at specific events, for example Social Saturdays and Open Garden days.  Speak to Davina, or Clair for more information, or to offer help.

 

Village defibrillator at the Village Hall

If you need to use the defibrillator for an emergency cardiac arrest then:

  • Go to the yellow box on the Village Hall wall.
  • Dial 999 and tell them the code on the box.
  • You will given a code by the emergency operator use it to open the box using the keypad.
  • Don’t forget to also ask for an ambulance.
  • Take the equipment to the emergency.
  • The defibrillator will know if the person is having a cardiac arrest, or not.
  • The equipment will talk to you to tell you what to do.

 

 

Raffle Prizes Wanted

If you have a suitable prize that can donated to a raffle then please think about donating.

A raffle will be held at the Seaton Ross Fest on Saturday, 16th June.  The proceeds from the raffle will be split between the Village Hall and the Playing Fields.

If you are able to donate a raffle prize please could you leave it in the porch at Gail & Chris Brockhouse’s house from the Friday morning before the Fest (Friday, 15th June). They live close to the bad bend near Mains Lane.

The bigger the raffle the more funds we can raise!

Many thanks!
