Successful year for the hall
It is still not known how much Clayhidon Parish Hall committee will need to raise to pay for improvements to the building, but the annual meeting was told that the previous year had shown a marked boost in its finances. This was put down to a successful year for lettings, live events and film nights, plus a £2,000 donation from the Parish Council.
The hall committee and its helpers worked hard to produce another year of live entertainment, film shows and other community events. They have cooked and generously donated food and raffle prizes and, given much time and effort in preparing for and running events. At the same time, they have been looking to the future, with comprehensive plans to refurbish the hall and build an extension.
The committee was re-elected en bloc, with the addition of Neil Carter, who has been asked to co-ordinate the building project. Officers re-elected were Gareth Weekes, chairman; Lucy Ball, vice chair; Caroline King, secretary and Sandra Aldworth, treasurer.
