The hall will have been open for 1 year this coming April, and is already demonstrating how much it is needed, busy on most days with activities ranging from sports and fitness to baby music and a family support group.
The regular Community Café, Cinema, Little DuckLyngs playgroup, Badminton and Table Tennis Clubs run under the umbrella of the hall and as well as help raise funds to run the hall, they offer important social interaction and services to our rural community.
Plus all the times the hall has been hired already for private functions; we've had our first wedding, a christening party, many children's birthday parties and several wakes.
NEW YEAR, NEW FACES? We're very proud of this initial success and we're now encouraging people to get involved and help us continue with the hall's progress.
If you think that you might be able to help in any way we would be delighted to hear from you - send us an email to LyngHall@mail.com
NEW YEAR, NEW TRUSTEES? We're also looking for more members of the community to step forward as Trustees as several of the older members will be retiring. Being a Trustee is not onerous and involves a meeting on average once a month, and with our new constitution, as registered under The Charity Commission you are almost entirely protected from any liabilities.
“Trustees have overall control of a charity and are responsible for making sure it’s doing what it was set up to do. Trustees are the people who lead the charity and decide how it is run.” CHARITY COMMISSION FOR ENGLAND AND WALES
Our AGM is provisionally arranged for 7.30pm on March 13th so it would be great to see some new faces. If you think you can help in ANY way just come and talk to one or more of the Trustees or caretakers and see if it appeals.
REMEMBER - it is your hall and you can help shape its future and what it offers.
