The Church Minshull Community Website

Church Minshull Village Hall is a great asset to our community.
There is so much happening there — Ballroom Dancing, Art Classes, Bridge Classes, Indoor Bowls, Table Tennis, Singing, Drama Group Productions, Exercise, Pilates — the list goes on and on.
In addition, the Hall is available for hire by individuals for Birthday Parties, Wedding Parties and almost any event you might want to hold there (as long as it is legal!!!).
To sustain this asset, we have a group of Trustees who are responsible for the upkeep and maintenance of the hall. Their roles include:
** Dealing with bookings
** Looking after the finances
** Sourcing contractors to carry out maintenance/building works
** Sourcing grants for new projects
** Secretarial duties
Those of you who have visited the Village Hall recently will have seen (and hopefully benefitted from) the new heating and lighting installations and the Trustees are continually looking at ways to improve the Hall even more. Future prospective projects include a complete re-decoration of the Hall and building a self-contained meeting room.
BUT WE NEED MORE TRUSTEES TO JOIN US
No special knowledge/experience required — just an enthusiasm to sustain and improve this important facility.
If you think this could be for you, then let us know — or better still come along to the AGM on Tuesday, 16th May at 7.30 pm. If you want further information, feel free to contact one of the existing Trustees:
Sandra Wallis (Chair), Sue Challoner (Secretary), Jeanne Stockdale (Treasurer), Dave Barrett, Margaret Denton, Sue Hugill, Rob, Jones, Chris Shaw
