February News

The hall has had a busy few weeks and some good news as well.

St Werburgh’s Church held a Burn’s Night dinner on 25th January which saw the hall packed to capacity as the haggis was paraded and kilts were on display.

It was a fantastic night and one that showed the hall’s potential as a venue for an excellent night out.

The month has brought good news when the hall was awarded a grant from Your Moorlands Housing. The money will fund two newsletters that will be delivered across the village and available on the hall’s website to download. The newsletter will detail the hall’s facilities, regular events and a request for volunteers to join the committee.

The committee hope to have the newsletter delivered my mid to late March and are grateful to the local Guides and leader Jane McFarlane for their help.

In addition the money will also  be used to update the hall’s crockery and to that end the committee has been very fortunate that Cheadle Rotary Club have given them a bone china dinner service in return for an appropriate donation.

Said Chair Martyn Hordern ‘to get the grant was excellent news, it will fund two newsletters this year, something we have tried to do for some time, but to then be offered the dinner service was an extra bonus and we are very grateful to Bill Sherratt and Alan Chesters who made it happen’

The hall are hoping to put on an event on Easter Saturday – more details to follow when finalised.

Lastly the committee has complemented its website with a Facebook page – Kingsley Village Hall, which will provide the hall with another online presence.

Said Martyn ‘we have had over 30 ‘likes’ in less than a week and the page is providing an excellent place for us to advertise the hall and local events’
