The Village Hall
The refurbished Village Hall will have opened for the autumn season by the time you read this. We are grateful to all the contractors, our caretaker and all those who made this possible. Our thanks also to the providers of finance, namely The Community Fund, Eastern Region; The Chipperfield Parish Council; Dacorum Borough Council; Herts Community Foundation; Dacorum Community Trust; The Parish Church and St. Pauls School. They contributed two thirds of the total project cost of £60K; the balance is being financed by the Village Hall itself. This now sets us on the road to market our facilities to other users, inside and outside the village. The current users take up roughly 70% of total capacity and we are most grateful for that support by regular users over the years. Anyone who wishes to view the new facilities are very welcome to do so by contacting our Caretaker, Moreen Wheeler, on 01923 264903. Also, regular users may well have other organisations they could suggest we contact. Such ideas would be greatly appreciated. We have issued a ” Wedding List ” of requirements to our users and friends, to indicate the priority of items still needed. Any person or organisation who wish to make a contribution should contact me or Graham Breen.
Finally, may I remind readers that the large shed, previously used by the Horticultural Society, is now available for rent and anyone interested should contact me.
