Appeal to all Leigh residents old and new!
We need some more members on the Memorial Hall committee.
We usually meet on the 1st Mon of the month at 8pm in the Memorial Hall for about an hour although the next meeting is 8pm on Wed 30th June due to holiday commitments.
No special skills needed and its a chance to contribute to the running of a facility which is for the use of all villagers.
If you are interested please contact Sue Vaughan (813115), before the 30th June or just turn up to the meeting. You will be made very welcome.
PS. A very special thanks to Sue who is leaving the committee after 20 years (!!) as Chair/Secretary. New members of the Committee don't have to serve for that long !

Building work is scheduled to start on the 24th May 2021 for an estimated 18 weeks.. As a result there may be some disruption of traffic and parking however the contractors have assured us that they will keep this to a minimum.
