Village Hall – May 2019 Update

By | FrontPageMain

The trustees of the Funtington and District Village Hall held a public meeting and also their AGM on 22 May.  Those attending the meeting voted on a change of name of the village hall and on a change to the village hall constitution, the hall will now be known as ‘West Ashling and Funtington District Hall’, and the hall will become a ‘Charitable Incorporated Organisation’ (CIO).

At the AGM the trustees were nominated and voted back on, last year’s minutes were signed by Tony Clark, the treasurer read out her report, which showed that bookings were up, expenditure was down on last year and the accounts are looking very healthy, the Chairman then read out her Report.

Anyone wishing to see the Agenda, the Resolution, the Chairman’s report or any other papers, can find some of them on the Village Hall website or can contact Patricia Young (secretary) for copies.

The meeting was well attended, with wine and nibbles provided, it also turned out to be a fun, and a very sociable, evening.

On behalf of the trustees I would like to thank all who attended the meeting, for their fantastic support of what we, the trustees, are trying to achieve.

We are currently arranging a lot more fund raising events, including the cream teas at West Stoke on 30 June and a music evening on 3 August and with many more events in the pipeline, we hope to not only raise funds for the refurbishment of the village hall but to also enjoy getting together as a community.

There are now some of the plans for the proposed alterations of the village hall, on display in the hall.The full set of detailed drawings and documents can be seen on the South Downs National Park planning web site and enter the reference SDNP/19/02123/FUL
