Our village is growing and this means our Village Hall is a Gem — smack bang in the middle. For whatever reason I did not receive notification of the Hall User Group meeting held in October, so I'd like to have my say here.
Over the past few years a lot of time, money and volunteer work has gone into refurbishment of the village hall, with still a lot more to do.
Gone are the yellow walls and matching hideous yellow lighting. New floors, toilets, wash basins and paintwork are evident and the main kitchen clean and bright.
By contrast the Walter Rose Room kitchen is a disgrace and clearly needs attention.
Heating is always a huge concern yet the two sets of roof/ceiling trap-doors, located near the WCs are often found to be wide open?
Future funding is an ongoing concern, so why not highlight the six monthly User Group meetings and AGM on Haddenham.net Events Calendar?
Better still, a page dedicated to the Hall and its facilities — and perhaps an online facility to view the booking situation at a glance, in order to help those keen to book space on an occasional basis?
New comers are continually amazed at the size and facilities on hand saying, 'Gosh! I never knew all this was here'.
Take a look at how good the Museum page looks.
Good Advertising and improved visibility is the key to the Hall's future.
Come on Village Hall committee — drag this Gem of ours into the 21st century.
