Notice of the annual AGM for Dennington Village Hall, to be held on Wednesday 23rd October at 7.00pm in the Village Hall
You are all cordially invited to attend the Hall AGM as detailed above. We have come so far, and made such big changes in the Hall. it has been a very rewarding exercise for those of us involved, but now its time for others to step in and take the Hall forward into the future. Why not come along and participate in the Hall’s decision making and help move it forward, whether as a trustee or a willing participant?

Refurbishment update – 17/9/19
As some of you will know, we have had some challenges with our new heating system and have been in discussions with our providers. These have been replaced with effect from today, but will not be working for another 2 weeks as we are awaiting a visit from the Rointe expert to show us how to control them.
They look almost exactly the same but, we hope, will work better and more efficiently.
We have received funding now for large curtains for the large bay windows and several other minor things which is great and these will be dealt with in the coming months. We are still trying to determine whether to refurbish our old chairs or buy a whole set of new ones. We are awaiting a trial refurbishment of two chairs to enable us to see what they might look like.
Thanks to Matt Lunn, and to Roderick Roy for collecting them, we now have two grit bins which we will fill in preparation for the winter months.
On 1st October, a container is being delivered, to be placed next to the Sports Club containers, for extra Village Hall storage. This will make a considerable difference to the store room which is currently full to capacity.
A new additional mirror will go up in the ladies loos shortly and the kitchen hatch doors will also change to a more easily manageable system of opening and closing.
We await a response from East Suffolk Council as to whether we have been successful with the Exemplar fund application.
Enjoy the summer – isn’t it delightfully warm at present? the Friday night children’s sports evenings have gone really well, but have been suspended for a bit as ‘holiday’ time has set in, and several key people will be away. When they start up again, we will let you know.
Party Time, and more!!!!
Carl Squirrell once more held his annual fundraiser at the village hall in May and over 1250 peopel attended. it was a great party – see images below.
We also had another private party the following weekend with another 150 people, so much activity recently in our newly refurbished hall.
Thinking of having a children’s party in the near future????? why not try Dennington Village Hall?
