About the Village Hall
The hall will be holding its AGM on Tuesday 20th June at 7pm in the Village Hall
Our treasurer is stepping down this AGM so we are currently looking to appoint a new treasurer. We would like to thank Colin Thomas for all his hard work in keeping the accounts so neat and tidy and up-to-date. Thank you. If you feel you can spare some voluntary time to the Village Hall then please write to Mrs Gail Adams (Secretary), 5 Whitehall Close, Wenvoe, CF5 6DB to show interest.
Alternatively why not come along to the AGM on 20th June? All residents are welcome to attend.
A little history on the Wenvoe Village Hall – The Village Hall sits on land owned by ‘The Estate of Wenvoe’. It was offered to the village to use for a peppercorn rent pre-war times. The hall as it is seen today, was rebuilt in 1974. Some say before that it was a tin shack. However, I have fond memories of the old building as a child, attending many a function there and can only remember the tin doors. It was used for many events from talent competitions, dancing, weddings, Judo and for the community to come together to celebrate community life (No different to the hall today). Many groups meet here including; dancing for all ages, badminton classes, martial arts and is the home of the community run playgroup.
The hall is our local charity and belongs to us as a community. It is not funded by the Vale of Glamorgan and relies on a committee of residents to collect rents, apply for grants and general fundraising for its up-keep. At this point I would like to thank Rachel Marshall who supported the Committee with applying for a grant for our new kitchen. Thank you Rachel your support was very much appreciated.
Without a Committee at the Village Hall, the hall and its land will be passed back to the land owners. The lease states that we must have a number of residents on the committee to support the hall. This is where you can help your community. If you don’t want to lose your hall, playgroup, classes of recreation then please come to the AGM on 20th June or contact us at wenvoevillagehall @yahoo.co.uk
We don’t want to see a block of flats or more housing on this valuable piece of land, so we really do need you to contact us and show your support.
