REFURBISHMENT COMPLETE!

On 4th September the newly refurbished Wethersfield Village Hall opened its doors to its first booking! The Trustees are delighted with the result and hope very much that the community of Wethersfield will feel the same. On the 11th September we welcomed our new Postmistress, Christine, to the first session of the pop-up post office – she is certainly delighted with her comfortable surroundings. The post office operates on a Tuesday and Friday afternoon from 2pm until 4pm.  We must remember that if we don’t use it we will loose it so be sure to come along whenever you need something. We would remind you that this includes not just the odd stamp but you can withdraw cash, pay money into your bank, foreign exchange, send parcels and post letters. and so much more. It’s all there for you!

The Trustees are pleased to invite you to come along to our Grand Open afternoon on Sunday 14th October from 3pm. Have a look around the hall, enjoy a cup of tea, catch up with old friends and maybe make new. There will also be representatives from clubs and hall users so you will have the opportunity of finding out what is going on and maybe suggest some new activities.

Christmas Lights Switch on a great success

Once again the Wethersfield switch on was a great event helped enormously by excellent weather.  Due to your generosity it ooks as though the village hall renovation fund will have grown by over £1000 once all the sums are done.  Thanks to all those who attended and all those who helped.  Don’t forget the Christmas Cracker on Saturday 16th – should be another great night of live music, entertainment and fun. Tickets available for just £5 from the Post Office or Mair (01371 850 620)

Wethersfield Village Hall – News Update

2017 has seen the start of the refurbishment of the Village Hall. We have been extremely fortunate in receiving grants of almost £30,000 so far but there is still work to be done and so the quest for funding continues.

The ladies toilets have been completely redone and now work has started on the gents. This will be finished by the end of June. It was recently discovered that the asbestos on the roof of the small hall is breaking down and so it has become urgent that the roof be replaced. It is planned that work on this should start at the end of July/beginning of August. Work will then have to be carried out on the hall itself as it will be rendered unusable as a result of replacing the roof.

As well as grant aid the Trustees are working on fundraising themselves.

There has recently been an envelope appeal throughout the village and so far we have raised over £2,000.00 and still rising!  Thank you Wethersfield, this will all go towards the refurbishment of your village hall.  Future events:

15th July:  Village Hall Fun Weekend Quiz. 7.30 pm start. Tickets £5.00 per person to include a delicious slice of Mary Berry’s Wimbledon Cake and a glass of prosecco (bring your own drinks and nibbles). It’s hoped that all village clubs and associations will field teams.

16th September:  Wethersfield Garage Sale. For further information please contact Russell Green, 01371 850458.

21st October:  “ABBA Sensation”!  This is one of the country’s finest ABBA tribute bands, more used to playing large venues than village halls but they are coming to Wethersfield! Tickets £12.50 each. Contact Mair Godley, 01371 850620.  Look out for the posters and get your tickets quickly!
