150 CLUB April 2020 to March 2021
The current lock down because of Corona Virus has halted the collection of money for this year's draws. We have completed collection for Church End and for about half of South End/Mains Lane. It is no longer possible to do North End/ West End (collector Anna Sheldon), Mill Lane (Hazel Rhodes), and the rest of South End/Mains Lane (Margaret Hunt).
As a result of this we have decided to run a ‘virtual 150 Club’ until we can complete the collection. It will be run as follows:
- we will assume everyone wishes to re-join, unless we have positive information they are leaving
- Draws will begin on the last Saturday in April as usual, results published on notice boards but prize money will not be paid until we have been able to complete the collection
- anyone wishing to pay cash or cheque now may do so by posting it through their collectors door. Please remember to say who it is from!
- anyone wishing to pay by bank transfer please email their collector who will send an invoice with instructions on how to pay, contact Anna Sheldon email@example.com 318602 or 07757797633 (signal permitting) or use the contact link on this website.
Please see further below for more information about the 150 club.
Our Village Hall began life as the village school. It is next to the Church in the centre of the village and has an adjacent parking area.
The hall has one large room and one small meeting room, together with a fully equipped kitchen, toilets and free Wi-Fi. It is large enough for parties of up to 80 people yet small enough to be cosy for just a few.
The Hall is administered by local volunteers through the Village Hall committee, who also arrange fund raising activities. More helpers are always welcomed. Contact us if you would like to volunteer.
- Hire of the Hall
Seaton Ross Village Hall is a real asset, recently refurbished and with a newly boosted heating system. It sits in the middle of the village with a small car park and roadside parking. The hall can cater for a variety of needs, from small formal meetings to events for up to 80 seated.
It can be used for a range of activities. It is a great venue for kids clubs, birthday parties, anniversary celebrations, wedding receptions and funeral occasions. It is ideal for local clubs and special interest groups such as the Art Group and the Ladies Group. It is suitable for indoor recreation – there is currently Pilates, Indoor Bowls and Gentle Yoga.
We can also cater for small business use, whether that be training, presentations, conferences or client entertaining.
We offer a large hall, a small room, a fully equipped modern kitchen, and wifi, projector and screen, and disabled access.
We currently only charge £8 an hour, the cheapest rate in the area.
For bookings and further information please call Gyl Sampson on 01759 318630, or complete our contact form.
Money is raised by bookings for private events such as children’s parties, groups/classes, by a 150 Club lottery with monthly prizes and by fund raising events.
- 150 Club
The 150 Club is the Village Hall’s most important fund raiser and provides almost half of our regular income.
The cost of an annual ticket is £12 and you can buy as many tickets as you like. There is a draw of 4 prizes – 1 of £25, 1 of £20 and 2 of £10 – on the last Saturday of each month.
There is a bonus draw in November with a 1st prize of £100, 2nd £50, and 2 at £20 plus other prizes to equal half the funds collected by the lottery.
This means that the number of tickets sold does not have to be limited so long as the prizes given equal half the total income from the tickets. Much better odds than the national lottery, and for the benefit of the whole village.
Joining is simple. The 150 Club starts in April each year. Contact Anna Sheldon on 01759 318602, by email firstname.lastname@example.org, or use our contact form for new tickets. For existing tickets to be renewed the volunteer collector for your road will visit before the end of April.
