After 25 years of service to the Haddenham Village Hall, Sue Parkinson will be leaving as secretary at the end of March. Sue joined the Executive Committee of the village hall when her mother-in-law, Mabel Parkinson became ill and has continued in the role ever since.
Mabel is celebrated by a room bearing her name as she led the village fundraising effort to build the hall in the 1960's.
Ian, Mabel's son, has also served on the management committee.
While Sue's departure will be a great change for the village hall, the Executive Committee are delighted that Pete Summerskill has agreed to take the role of Administrator for the next six months.
Pete is well known in the village for his work with the Beer Festivals and has already started thinking about how he can ensure the transition will be as seamless as possible. The Committee will be announcing the new telephone number for booking shortly but in the meantime, you can contact Pete on the new email address:
Members of the Executive Committee are busy preparing for the AGM on 24th May, when villagers will be able to discuss what they want from this fantastic resource at the heart of our village.
Look forward to hearing your thoughts.
