News Archive ~ Village Hall Success

Last September we entered the Colonel John Higgs Village Hall Competition and, after the first round of inspections, we were shortlisted in the final six.

The competition doesn't centre around the best building - ours is far from that! - but on how well it is run and supported by the community it serves. The inspectors looked at not only maintenance, cleanliness, available facilities (such as kitchen, disabled persons' toilet, ease of entry etc) but also our Booking Diary and current accounts.

On 8th November our Chairman and Treasurer attended a special reception at Blaby and District Social Centre to hear the results and were pleased to accept a certificate for being 'highly commended'. This is on display in the entrance hall.

This is only the second time we have entered this competition, and the Committee is very pleased that we have reached this level in such a short time.
