Booking of Hall

First, we regret that the Hall is not available for letting to or for the use of anyone between the ages of 12 and 21.  But children’s parties may be held between 2 pm and 6 pm on Saturdays and Sundays. The fee (all fees are as from October 2011) is £45 with a refundable deposit of £100, both of which must be paid in advance.

Evening parties may be held between 6.30 p.m. and 11.30 p.m. The fee is £85 with a refundable deposit of £125. For non-residents the fee is £100, but the refundable deposit is the same (£125).

The Parish Council has the Hall for its meetings from 7.30 p.m. onwards on the second Monday of the months of January, March, May, July, September and November, and occasionally on other occasions.

The University of the Third Age uses the Village Hall on Wednesday afternoons; and table tennis is played on Tuesday and Thursday evenings.

Regular weekly or monthly lettings for meetings or other activities (as opposed to a one-off event) may be held, subject to a formal licence being completed beforehand. The rates are £12 per hour.

Further details and applications are available from the Lettings Officer, Pat Wood, 32 Pye Corner (Telephone 01279 419838).

The next AGM will be on Monday 6 February 2012 at 8 p.m. It is always good to see people who are interested and who might have ideas and questions. A reminder will go into the January 2012 magazine.

APOLOGIES FOR ABSENCE: Patrick Wood (Trustee & Bookings Officer

MINUTES OF THE LAST MEETING: Held on the 8th October 2012 were approved and signed.

HALL LETTINGS: Table Tennis, Bridge, meetings and occasional parties were held.

WORKS TO HALL:  There were none since the last meeting.


Regarding the extension of the car park Trevor would be speaking to the Chairman of High Wych Memorial Hall as to the likely costs of resurfacing and marking out parking bays with locking posts for existing residents parking.


Williams and Dace, chartered surveyors, would be employed to plan the enlargement of the car park with the above facilities dependent upon level, and carry out a condition survey on the hall so that the Trustees can decide upon necessary and desirable works to improve the premises.  Once estimates had been sought and received. 


Then an approach would be made to East Herts District Council for funds, which would be held by them from the budget of the Terlings Park Development.  Preparations for the development had already commenced with demolition of the buildings and the underground structures.


Regarding improvement to external lighting, low level bollards with possible switch controls would be considered.


ANY OTHER BUSINESS:  Further to the overcharging by the electricity supplier, EON, that company would be reducing the substantial credit held by them by reducing subsequent electricity bills.

THE NEXT MEETING: Would be held on 24th June and 7th October 2013.
