Hello all, the hall has continued to grow with multiple successful events having recently been held alongside our weekly activities. The St Piran’s day festival proved very popular and showed that the hall can still be the focal point for the village, and it also raised over £500 to help with improvements to the hall. We also recently held our first live event, a fantastic night of of music from The Last Watch with scrumptious pasties from Over the Top Pasties. The hall was almost at capacity that night and fun was had by all.
We are still looking at further ways to utilise the hall, from film nights to hosting training events. If you have an ideas, know someone looking for a space or would like to help in some way, don’t hesitate to get in touch with us via this site or our facebook page.
The electrics in the downstairs have now been made safe and we are looking at how best to use that space. With that in mind we are holding a public consultation day on the 15th of April to see what the people of the village would like to see the space used for, so please come along and share your thoughts.
Despite the purchase of further appliances, heating continues to be an issue in the hall, a common problem for large, old buildings like ours, however we are now in a position where we can begin to look for funding opportunities to help in this regard. It is a big project that will cost a lot of money to complete. We will also be looking to renovate both the kitchen and toilets to bring them up to modern standards, if you are tradesman who would like to help us with planning these projects, please get in touch.
As you may be aware, we are currently running a crowdfunder. It has had some good support but every little will help us secure the future so if you could please visit https://www.crowdfunder.co.uk/gunnislake-village-hall-rejuvenation and give what you can.
The Management Committee would like to thank you for your continued support and encouragement and are committed to continuing the revival of a much loved village institution.
