Wanted – Volunteers for Management
WENVOE VILLAGE HALL
Your Local Registered Charity
Due to the current virus in circulation, we have decided to cancel our Annual General Meeting (AGM) 2020. Due to the local lockdown(s) now in place, we feel that it is unsafe to meet indoors and invite everyone to an AGM who would wish to support the hall!
You may be aware that the land that the Village Hall sits on belongs to the Wenvoe Estate. Without a Management Committee the hall would be given back to the owners, to sell on and/or build upon.
We do hope that during lockdown, some of you lovely people reading this, will think of supporting your local charity, by becoming a member of its Management. We mainly look after the up-keep of the hall by meeting once a month (with the exception of August) to ensure our community can offer a great venue for many in our Village. Classes held; Badminton, Karate, Dancing and Children’s parties to mention a few (Covid permitting). Not forgetting it is the home of our local Playgroup which is also a Charity.
The Village Hall has been successful in obtaining 2 small grants to make us as Covid Safe as possible. We were also successful with a slightly larger grant from the Vale of Glamorgan to help with its up-keep for the short term, whilst some of our hirers have been unable to return safely.
The Committee would like to thank Gail for all her hard work in obtaining these grants.
We are following the latest updated Government advice. At this time only classes who support Children under 11 are able to return and meet indoors.
Should the Government advice allow groups of adults to meet indoors once more, then please get in touch with Carol on our email, wenvoevillagehall@ yahoo.co.uk. We would like to say a thank you from the Committee to Carol for all her hard work behind the scenes at these unprecedented times. Thank you, Carol.
We are sorry to say that there will be NO ‘Christmas Raffle Draw’ for the Village Hall this year.
With the current pandemic in circulation and the loss of many jobs and businesses, we thought it only respectful that we don’t add to the burden by asking for raffle prize donations. We also thought, that as we are unable to meet or mix with people from different households, that it would be extremely difficult to sell tickets anyway.
Be aware! We hope to be back bigger and better for 2021 when we celebrate the hall’s 100th Birthday
