The Meeting was opened by the chair S. Vaughan

 

Minutes of last year’s meeting were agreed and signed.

 

Annual Report and Accounts were presented to the meeting by SV and KC.  SV read out the Review of the Year Summary with items on maintenance, bookings and fundraising.  On behalf of the committee she welcomed Ty Schlecter who had joined during the year as the Parish Council representative.  KC then summarised the annual accounts reporting another successful year but warning that hirings have dropped and that we need to make sure we continue to cover the costs of running the hall from this income.  Various items such as the advertising and initial license fee will not re-curr but the committee will need to consider how to pass on a portion of the annual license fee to hirers.  TS expressed concern that any increase in charges would not undercut other halls in the area and lead to less bookings, SV to investigate

 

 

Election of 2004/2005 Committee

With the exception of Paul Moore who did not wish to attend now no longer PC rep.  the current committee members all agreed to stand again and the officers to continue in their positions.  The Committee for the coming year was therefore elected.

ML also pointed out need to clear hall completely for school Christmas plays.  TS suggested purchasing gazebo to cover any tables left outside.
