Special event details

Peter Fardell who has been the Chairman of the Whatton Jubilee Hall Committee for 5 plus years has sadly resigned from his position and the Committee with immediate effect. 

Peter has been instrumental in working to maintain and improve the facilities, maintenance and decoration of the hall for the benefit of all users, and has always taken the lead in any of the planned events.
To say he will be missed is an understatement but he feels that he wants more time to be able to visit his family in the South whenever he likes, without having to take hall activities into consideration before being able to make plans. Peter also spends time caring for his elderly Mother. 
We send him our best wishes for the future and thanks from us and the local community for all that he has done for the hall.
We have also been informed that Brian Tidy, another long serving Committee member has resigned. Brian had intended to give his resignation to the Committee at this years AGM but as that did not take place he has informed us by email of his decision with immediate effect. 
Again we thank Brian for all that he has done for the hall during his time on the Committee and wish him well for the future. 
I'm sure we'll see both Pete and Brian at hall events once they resume and it is safe.

These resignations mean that we have some gaps on the Committee and need to recruit more members.

We don't want to be in the position of having to close the hall due to having too few members so we are appealing to the local community to please express an interest to join the Committee with one of us, or ask for more information.
We cannot continue to offer the range of activities and events with just a few of us organising them.
Graham Smith the current Vice Chair will deputise as Chairman until such time as we have a full Committee, when we can then decide on who will undertake the necessary roles.
The Committee as it currently stands are:-
Graham and Linda Smith
Geoff Bowser
Graham and Diane Freer

Terry Boardman

We are meeting on Thursday July 2nd to discuss all of these issues and also to consider how we can safely open up the hall as soon as it is safe to do so, both for the return of regular hirers, special celebrations and our own events.

At present, following Government guidance and taking into consideration the vulnerability of many of our customers, the Jubilee Hall continues to be closed to all activities, and events.

We are closely monitoring Government guidance re the opening up Community halls and the safeguarding measures that need to be in place to protect both users and volunteers. However we will not be opening until we are sure that we have taken all the neccessary steps to minimise the spread of Corona virus to the lowest level possible.
We will keep you updated of any developments.
Thank you for your support during this difficult time and we hope you all keep well.

Some Good News.

Hopefully by November we will have got through this current emergency and things will be returning to normal
Brian Hogg has booked the Windmill Folk to come and entertain everyone at the annual Ceilidh on Saturday November 14th.
More information re tickets etc nearer the time.

The Committee will meet soon to discuss events for the next 6 months so If anyone has any thoughts, ideas or suggestions for events they would like to see at the Jubilee Hall, please speak to one of the Committee.
Coffee Mornings are currently suspended until further notice.
