Village Hall A.g.m.6 July 2004

19th of September 2004

The Chairman welcomed those attending the meeting. He reported considerable activity during the year to 31 March 2004, as the Village Hall had undergone a complete refurbishment at a cost of £65,000. This involved re-flooring throughout, new drainage work, connecting the facilities to the main drainage system, the installation of disabled toilet facilities to conform with legislation, and re-vamping the kitchen/bar facilities. These costs had been funded from three main sources, namely half from the Big Lottery Funds, with supporting grants from Dacorum B.C. and Chipperfield Parish Council, and finally the generous donations, in response to his appeal letter, by individual Chipperfield well-wishers and organisations.
Richard Edwards then went on to thank Hugh Clifford for his considerable free professional advice and supervision time during the year under review. He thanked all Committee members, regular hall users and Mrs. Moreen Wheeler, our caretaker, for their support and understanding while the works were in progress. He also expressed his thanks to Russ Evans for putting village events, including the Village Hall, on to the internet and donating his time, free of charge, which is greatly appreciated by the community.
Tony Loveband, the Treasurer, presented the annual accounts, which showed a surplus for the year of £1,723 and total funds of £30,554 as at 31 March 2004. This year’s forecast projected a small profit after heavy electrical/recabling expenditure. He thanked the Parish Council for their annual grant. The accounts were adopted by the meeting, subject to audit, which is due to be carried out in August/September 04.
John Foulgham, on behalf of the Committee, thanked the Chairman for all his work on the hall during this particularly busy year.
