Leigh on Mendip Memorial Hall Committee


DRAFT Minutes of Meeting held on 7th December 2020


Present  E Brooks, A Orpwood, R Orpwood, D Pattison, V Taylor, S Vaughan


Apologies/Absent  G Baker, B Wigmore


Minutes of previous meeting were agreed and signed after changing date of current meeting and numbering of AOB points. SV apologised that as she had opted to run the meeting via Zoom the issue of whether to decorate the Hall for Christmas had not been discussed. However she hoped this hadn’t been a problem as at the time of arranging the meeting only the Tai Chi classes were due in the coming weeks.


DP reminded us we needed to vote in the officers at this meeting and all existing ones agreed to stand again.


Treasurer’s Report DP had paid EB for the cleaning up to the start of the second lockdown. He confirmed that £537 had been received from the school booking. SV asked how he had learnt about the latest grant received and evidently this was via the Parish Council.  100 club results:- Special Christmas draw Cathy McFadden, Dec draw 1st June Brewster, 2nd Ann Orpwood and 3rd Chris Cudmore.


Booking Clerks’ Report. Both the Tai Chi and the Yoga had returned to the Hall, Bowls had decided to wait. Graham Harris had expressed an intent to return with the Active Living Centre probably in May.


Correspondence None received



No work had been done on the roof. DP had left several messages for the roofer but had no response. He would continue to try and make contact but SV said if no progress by the spring we would need to look again for an alternative contractor.


Fund raising

A second grant had been received for £1334.



1) SV reminded DP to buy our usual gift for the accountant

2) SV felt just a card would be appropriate for Mr Rabbitts this Christmas but some of the committee did not agree so she would buy a box of chocolates as in the past and also for EB who had done most of the cleaning this year.



Date of next meeting  Monday 4th January at 8pm, either by zoom or in the Hall, to be decided later.
