Village Fete

I am very pleased to say that at the meeting we held on Monday 22nd of November, to see if it would be possible to have a Fete in 2022, was very positive with several offers of help.  This lead to us organising another meeting on December 13th.  We will be having regular meetings about once a month from January so if you would like to get involved please get in touch.  I know there are people that would be willing to help on the day or on the run-up to the Fete but do not want to be part of the committee, if this is you please get in touch and I can easily find you a job.

Village Hall

One of the greatest expenses for the village hall is the insurance.  As the premium increased again this year I asked Tony Woodroffe, using his background knowledge of insurance, if he would investigate the possibility of getting a better quote.  I would like to express my gratitude to him for the vast amount of time he has spent doing this with a very satisfactory result that will save the hall quite a lot of money.  Many thanks Tony.

It is very pleasing that the hall is now being used as much as it was before Covid-19 hit us.  Do make sure that you are aware of all the activities that are going on in the hall they include; yoga, short mat bowls, skittles, art group, coffee mornings, badminton as well as the other events such as Artsreach productions.  If you would like to know more about any of the events happening in the hall please let me know and I can put you in touch with the right person.

Village Hall



The hall management committee normally meet on six Monday evenings during the year, however, due to Covid-19 restrictions, this year our planned meeting for May was a virtual meeting via the wonders of the computer.  It is also not possible to hold our Annual General Meeting in the hall so we are placing the relevant documents in the Community Room and also on the village website.  If it is felt we still need to have meeting in the hall I will arrange one when restrictions allow.

Most of the usual events took place until we were forced to close the hall due to Covid-19.  Yoga classes had started again, badminton on Tuesday nights was very popular and short mat boles took place on Friday afternoons.  Pot Luck Lunches still ran on Wednesdays.  As numbers had been falling the club had a publicity campaign to try and increase the number of people attending and, along with other changes, this had started to improve the attendance which we hope will continue once we are able to hold the lunches again.

The Village Cinema is going from strength to strength, some of the films shown had a record number of people attending.  Due to the cost of hiring the films we did have to increase the ticket price by 50p to £6.50, however this is the first time we have had to increase the cost.  As with everything else we had to cancel all shows due to Covid-19 but we are planning to start again in September if this is possible.

During the year the chiller cabinet in the bar went wrong and we have now replaced this and a fridge was donated to the hall so there is now a fridge in the kitchen and the bar as well as the chiller cabinet.

I always mention the paper shed which up until now has given the hall a very useful income.  I am sorry to say that due to the fall in the value of paper for recycling, the firm will no longer collect paper from us.  I would like to thank all the people who for years have put paper in the shed and those people who emptied it early on, some wet, Saturday mornings.  Please in future would you put paper in the council recycling bin?

Finally I would like to thank all the committee members for their help during the year and I look forward to the time we can get back to normal, whatever that will be.  Also a big thank you to people who are not on the committee but continue to help in so many ways.

Chairman, Halstock Community Hall Management Committee
