As of the 1st of May 2017 the hourly rental fee for the hall will increase from £15.00 per hour to £17.00 per hour.  This increase is the first increase for 2 years and is reflective of our increasing overheads.  We are a not for profit organisation and are committed to keeping our prices as low as possible however this increase in unfortunately unavoidable.

Thanks to the Lottery Fund!

The new double glazed windows with their new two tone blinds, the new double doors and round windows with their poppy design and the re-decoration of the Hall interior have been made possible due to a grant of £10,000 from the Lottery Fund plus a smaller contribution from the Hall reserves.

This project is the third phase of the upgrade and improvement of the Hall as part of the 5 year plan (2014-2018) to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the First World War and maintain the Hall as a fitting memorial. The Hall remains a valuable asset to the community with usage increasing year on year for a growing range of individual, club and organisation events.

The Hall is managed on behalf of the community by a small and unfortunately reducing group of volunteers and the committee would be pleased to welcome anyone with just a few hours a month to spare to join them and get involved in the next round of improvements. This would help bring new ideas from the community as well as some extra pairs of hands to ensure the long term existence of the Hall for everyone’s benefit. If you are interested and would like to know more please contact Steve Heywood (Chairman) on 07805 724589.

Catforth Village Hall flag

 

I am sure I am not alone, in giving a quiet thought to 'persons unknown' who have sadly passed away, (as signalled by the flag, flying at half mast, outside the village hall).

 

For those of you who, like me, wondered how the decision was made to fly the flag then I am pleased to say I can give the answer...

 

The flag at the village hall can (and will) be put at half mast for any villager (current or past) who has died.

 

In order for this to occur, someone has to notify a member of the committee either directly or by email catforthvillagehall@gmail.com. Please ensure if emailing you give the name of the person involved and if possible a short obituary which will be added to the website.

 

  

Ever wondered what goes on at the village hall, how you can get involved, how you can join the bowling club, who the trustees are... or indeed have you a question that you would like to ask about the hall and its activities but have never known who to address your query to? 

Well now is your opportunity ... if there is anything you would like to know, relating to the hall, email your question to catforthvillagehall@gmail.com . It will be directed to the relevant individual and your question and answer will be posted to the website.

 

 

  

 PLEASE HELP
