TRUNCH VILLAGE HALL – LATEST NEWS

TRUNCH VILLAGE HALL

AN ASSET TO THE COMMUNITY FOR OVER 100 YEARS – NOW UNDER THREAT!

WHAT’S THE PROBLEM?

We have two specific issues: An immediate need for refurbishment of the kitchen to meet Health & Safety standards, and a serious shortfall in income required to meet our annual expenses, primarily due to under use of the facilities.

WHAT ARE WE DOING ABOUT IT?

The Village Hall Committee, in consultation with current Hall users, is seeking to establish a Fundraising Group to explore various sources of income, including grants, fundraising events, marketing of the Hall etc.

WHAT’S HAPPENED SO FAR?

The Hall belongs to the Residents of Trunch, and the Committee, having already met with Hall users to discuss the way forward, now need to involve all residents in seeking their ideas, sharing their expertise and in volunteering to assist in the activities that will take place. As a result of the public meeting held on 5th October at least six additional residents have agreed to serve on the Committee to help raise vital funds. Other residents have agreed to assist with fund raising and staging of events.
