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.

Goodbye to Peldon Village Hall

Say hello to old friends and goodbye to an old hall (drink some coffee, tea, look at some art, buy a brick…)

We are sad and happy to announce the last ever coffee morning in the current Peldon Village Hall. The demolition is scheduled this year with final plans nearing agreement for the new building.

Come along on Saturday 17th September and mix with the community (we all loved it last time, didn’t we?) see some art from a local artist (Wesley Arch, image above) along with photos of the hall from its 50 amazing years!

Tell your friends, spread the word!

Vote For Peldon Village Hall

Voting is now open for “Colchester’s Big Choice”, vote for Peldon Village Hall!

The project to rebuild Peldon Village Hall is one of 12 shortlisted projects that are competing for a share of £200,000 of funding being provided by Colchester Borough Council for community projects in the Borough under its ‘Big Choice’ scheme. Local residents will decide who the winning projects are by voting for their favourites. Voting will be open between Monday 22 February and Friday 4 March, and the winning projects will be announced the following week.

We have pitched for £50,000 of the ‘Big Choice’ funding and, if we are successful, we should then have enough to allow us to start work. But whether or not we’ll succeed depends on how many people vote for our project.

Why Vote for Peldon Village Hall ?

The current hall in Peldon was built in the 1960’s and is a timber-framed, flat roofed building that is gradually deteriorating, despite our best efforts to maintain it. It’s well used by a variety of community groups and private hirers, attracting not just Peldon residents, but people from the surrounding villages and from Mersea. We recognised a few years ago that it needed replacing, not just to allow the current uses to continue, but also to provide the opportunity for new activities which we know that community would welcome. So we’ve drawn up plans for a new, larger building that will be at the heart of our community for the next 100 years.

How do I vote?

There are two ways you can vote for us, online or in person. You can go on-line to the Council’s website www.colchester.gov.uk/bigchoice and follow the link there. Alternatively, you can visit Colchester library where voting forms will be available. If neither of these methods is convenient, please call Bob Holmes on 01206 735510 and we’ll help you to cast your vote.

Who Can Vote?

Voting is open to anyone who is a resident in the area covered by Colchester Borough Council, whatever their age (including children) and you do not have to be on the electoral register. You will need to confirm your name, address and/or postcode when you vote.

Peldon Village Hall – annual report

Home made sausage rollsThe annual report and accounts of the Peldon Village Hall management committee are now online to review on the Peldon Village Hall webpage.  Reviewing the year the committee’s chairman, Keith Banks, considers the progress made towards building of a new Village Hall as well as the huge amount of work needed going forward to turn it into a reality.  He gives thanks to volunteers perhaps the most notable being 79-year-old Ethel Miller who, whilst standing down from the committee, still intends volunteering as a cleaner and regular provider of home made cheese straws and sausage rolls.  Yum!
