Anne takes the chair
Clayhidon Village Hall Committee has a new chair person - at least for the next three months.
Anne Langford was elected at the annual meeting on April 24, taking over from Gareth Weekes, who has stepped down after five years. She agreed to take the chair for three months "to see how it goes"
Caroline King was re-elected secretary and .David Bearne  signed on for another year as treasurer.
It has been a busy year for the committee, organising a record number of events, including a big brunch and a midsummer barn dance and party, as well as film nights and live music and theatre.
Having added a new roof, paid for by Viridor Credits,  the committee  has installed two new induction cookers, a glass washer and new safety glasses, and achieved numerous other improvements. It is now raising funds to build an extension with new toilets, a parish archive and a meeting room where performers can change.
The treasurer reported that events and film nights had raised more than £9,000. A further £8,000 had come in donations and the parish council had  made a grant of £2,000. Lettings had raised £2,494.
Thanking the committee for their efforts and generosity, Gareth apologised for overloading them, but said they had achieved a lot. 
Anne then thanked Gareth for all the hard work he had put in during his term as Chairman. This included the successful Viridor Grant bid for the Hall improvements, grappling with the bats problem and overseeing the excellent roof replacement. He was presented with an ornamental tree as a thank you for his hard work and achievements.
