Chipperfield Village Hall Agm

2nd of July 2005

The AGM was held on 7 June when the Chairman, Richard Edwards, welcomed all present and
invited them to partake of cheese and wine after the meeting. He thanked all committee
members for their support during the year; hall users and organisations for their bookings;
Moreen Wheeler, our caretaker; and the Parish Council for their financial support which
covered 15% of last year’s annual operating costs.
Mr Edwards then emphasised the importance of providing a viable active village hall for the
benefit of the community at large, the objective being to provide such facilities and break
even on operating costs. While we had a very good cross-section of users, thanks to Graham
Breen, our Booking Secretary, we were always keen to take on additional groups when the
booking diary allowed. The Chairman also emphasised the importance of encouraging new
committee members who would be most welcome, and asked such interested people to contact
him on 01923 262549, or the Secretary, Anne Stickland on 01442 832090. The new Licensing
Act was due for implementation and all village halls who wish to offer bar facilities were
being asked to apply to their local authorities for a licence.
The Treasurer, Tony Loveband, presented the annual accounts for the year ended 31 March
2005. Hall letting income stood at just under £10,000 and other income at £5,000, covering
the total operating costs of £15,000, showing a minute profit of £18. The balance sheet
showed net assets of just under £30,000. These accounts were adopted and a vote of thanks
passed to the independent examiner, Tony Cornell, who has kindly agreed to continue in
