This provides an opportunity to involve new members in the governance of the hall and to welcome back those who have taken a break! Anyone who would like more information on what is involved should speak to one of the board members.
Any Other Business. This meeting provides members with a chance to raise issues - we do ask for prior notification of these so that we can prepare a meaningful answer! The e-mail address to use is firstname.lastname@example.org or by letter to Richard Bryan c/o the village hall.
Membership - Our meeting is for members of the village hall; there are still some residents who are not joined-up as members - please let us know if this is the case and we will sign you up.
