For those new to the village, or anyone else, here is a short history and update on the Village Hall: what it is, how it works, and how it came into being.
The original Hall was a converted RAF hut built on land given to the Village in 1950. The cricket field and tennis courts were added shortly afterwards. In 1984 the present building was erected after much fundraising and with the help of various grants, and later on more land down the Ings was purchased.
The Hall is run by a Management Committee of up to 30 people which meets every two months. Five members retire and are replaced by election each year. The Hall is a registered Charity, and the Committee is overseen by seven Trustees who hold the Hall and lands under a Deed of Trust.
The upkeep of the Hall is entirely dependent on income from hiring and from fundraising events: it is independent of the District and Parish Councils and receives no aid from them. Being a Charity it does not make a “profit” so any surplus of income is used for major maintenance and improvements.
Hire rates for local people and groups are kept low to encourage Village societies to grow and to use the Hall - which is after all the main purpose of the building – but this means that fundraising events are necessary to make up the shortfall in income, and that as much maintenance as possible is carried out by volunteers.
Village Social events are advertised in the Village Shop and there will often be circulars throughout the Village and announcements in the Parish Newsletter
Notton is fortunate in having a number of people who are willing and able to give their time in all sorts of ways to the Village Hall, but of course more volunteers are always welcome! The Management Committee has a few vacancies, and anyone interested should come to the next Committee meeting and/or give me a ring.
