The Committee of the Community Centre extend an invitation to villagers to attend the Annual General Meeting on Tuesday September 8th at 7.30pm. The event will be in the Hall and well he held under Covid secure conditions. (Facemasks are required)

Current Vice-Chair Sue Hardacre says "We need people to come and tell us what they want from the Community Centre, to tell us what we are getting right and what we are getting wrong. Established committees get used to doing things a certain way and can sometimes shy away from change. We need new ideas and suggestions to make sure that the Centre continues to be a successful and sustainable part of village life."

The average age of the Community Centre Committee is inexorably rising and needs new, younger members. Some people may be put off by the apparent high workload that current members carry, but this is partly because the Committee is so small. More members mean less work for all. This is an annual plea from so many organisations, but this could be critical for the Community Centre in the next couple of years. However, the Community Centre is not only well managed, but is financially secure, and you are invited to join a thriving organisation.

The last few months have seen the Community Centre eerily quiet, though the steady work of the Caretaker, Chris Leavy, has ensured that the building has been kept clean to a high standard and that lots or renovation works have been carried out. The stage has been refurbished and the new heating system completed. The best news is that customers, both old and new, are starting to return.

Sue says "The next few months will see us getting used to a new way of working, with extra systems in place to try and ensure that we reduce risks as much as possible. Every user will have to look carefully at what they are offering and do a risk assessment to ensure that they follow the guidelines. Wearing face masks will seem strange, but most will see this imposition as the best route to normality."

The current Committee is committed to opening the Centre so that the community can come together, to enjoy each other's company, to rekindle friendships and to do the things that bring a smile to the faces of all.

Please help us to do this.
