See Village Hall Progress this Saturday

The Peldon Village Hall Management Committee invite all to a coffee morning this Saturday 11th February.  Taking place at St Mary’s Church between 10am – 12 noon cakes and refreshments will be on offer.  Builders have made progress on the hall with the foundation and floor now complete.  The site visit will allow you to walk through the site with the rooms marked out so you can get an idea of the layout.

No charge will be made although any donations would be welcome, since although the build is fully funded, money is still needed for fitting out of the hall.

Wigboroughs’ Village Hall AGM 2016

Wigboroughs’ Village Hall AGM 2016

WIGBOROUGHS VILLAGE HALL MANAGEMENT COMMITTEE

Annual General Meeting, Tuesday 29th November 2016.

The single resolution put to the residents of Great and Little Wigborough was:

That the site in School Lane should be sold and the net proceeds split equally between two initiatives

  • the enhancement of the nave of Great Wigborough Church to make it more suitable for use as a community venue
  • supporting the re-development of Peldon Village Hall to create a co-owned and shared community centre to be known as the Peldon and Wigboroughs Community Centre.

The resolution was carried by 60 votes in favour and 22 against, the totals including 37 postal votes.

New trustees were elected and the committee now consists of three appointed trustees (Jinny Gale, Phil Gladwin and Sam Norton) and four elected trustees (Steve Copeland, Marion Houlding, John Hutchinson and Melanie Newton).

At a subsequent trustees meeting Jinny was elected as Chairman, Melanie as Secretary and Steve as Treasurer.

The result is binding upon the committee who will now proceed to implement it as quickly as they can.
