FRITWELL VILLAGE HALL COMMITTEE

MORE EXCITING NEWS!!

JUST THREE MORE WEEKS TILL WE CAN START REGULAR EVENTS AGAIN!

From the 17th May we have been able to host outdoor events for up to 30 people. Access to the hall remains minimal until 21st June (all being well) so ……….

Outdoor Thirsty Thursday 10th June 7.30p

Weather permitting, the Committee will be holding its popular Thursday Quiz for a maximum of 25 people (5 Committee members and volunteers will be helping with serving drinks and monitoring safety precautions).  Places will have to be booked in advance, drinks will be brought to tables and social distancing will be observed. Look out for further information on how to book your place and don’t be left out. Please go here for further details

Indoor Thirsty Thursday Weekly from 24th June at 8.30pm

Again, assuming there are no changes to Government guidelines, a real indication that things are well on the way to normality!

Cushion Club Friday 25th June, Doors Open 7.30pm

We look forward to welcoming regulars back and to meeting newcomers to our film shows.  If members have any preferences for the first showing, please let Helen know on metcalfe68@waitrose.com or 346697. To become a member of the club, or to find out the details of the films to be shown, you will need to subscribe as a member.  To do so, follow this link https://www.fritwellvillagehall.co.uk/the-cushion-club/

Bingo

 We are revisiting this and other regular events so look out for news on them in the coming weeks.

Flower Show 7th August 2pm – 4pm

See the poster elsewhere in the magazine.  Let’s hope the weather improves so that there will be lots of superb entries in the vegetable, fruit and flower classes.  We don’t need good weather to enter the domestic classes, just get baking nearer the time.  Schedules will be available as usual from Wrightons or Vivienne nearer the time.

NEW RECRUITS

We are delighted to welcome Becky Bignell, Libby Furness and Cass Miller Jones as co-opted members of the Committee.  Cass has even agreed to be our Chair! We look forward to working with them all.

FUTURE OF THE VILLAGE HALL

A subcommittee has been formed to carry on the work started by our previous Chairs on determining the future of the Hall, which is quickly reaching the end of its life.  Residents will be canvassed for their views so please be ready to give your opinions so that any decisions made will truly represent the whole village.

COMMUNITY FRIDGE

The Committee is delighted to support this admirable venture becoming a permanent fixture to life in the village by giving permission to site a storage shed in the grounds.  There are one or two hoops to jump through before this can happen but we wish Kerry and her helpers every success.

INCORPORATION

An application has been made to the Charity Commission to convert the present charity to a Charitable Incorporated Organisation.  We await the response before moving to the next step.

For all information about the Hall and its management please visit, and tell your friends about, our website www.fritwellvillagehall.co.uk or our Facebook page.
