Correspondence 1) Framed certificate from Calor village of year comp, SV to get put on wall, also from this a cheque for £75 payable to Parish Council which SV had passed to Chris Cudmore 2) Current certificate re subscription to Community Council for Somerset, SV to put up. 3) Info on another village hall insurance scheme, SV passed to KC. 4) Plan from Jan Robson for possible extension on kitchen side of Hall as putting foundations on other side could be very expensive due to tree roots.
Maintenance 1) KC still awaiting reply re dates from Terry Hamblin. 2) Gap in guttering still o/s TS will do, SV has materials. 3) Extension, SV has meeting with Western Power Distribution re cost of moving telegraph pole if have extension that side. 4) It was noted there had been problems locking the front door of the Hall, which is thought to be due to the hot weather. SV had been down a couple of times and successfully closed it but obviously there is sometimes a problem. Doors are thought to be plastic so shaving some off not a solution. Need to keep situation monitored, only long term solution may be replacement of door/s, which would be expensive so need to be sure necessary.
Fund raising 1) Still awaiting forms to order tickets/posters etc from Take Art re Shoo Shoo Baby on 13th Oct, SV will chase. 2) Fete liable to pay out around £400.
