June News

Very gradually the hall is coming back to life but it is a slow process as restrictions are gradually lifted. Yoga classes have now resumed on a Thursday evening. The Mothers and Baby group thrives with three sessions a week although this may reduce after half term. The Meeting Place will soon be able to meet inside but still socially distanced.

On 6 May the hall hosted a masked and socially distanced polling station. If you voted you were probably too busy making your decision to notice the redecoration and the freshly cleaned and rehung curtains. I fussed about making sure the election officers were keeping warm (15 hours is a long sit with the doors open). By the time I left I had completely forgotten who I voted for!

To complete the renovation, over the week end 29-30 May the floor will be resurfaced. The hall will therefore be closed from midday on the Saturday to the following Wednesday to allow the floor time to cure. Thanks are due to Cllr Costigan for a grant of £300 towards the cost of the operation.

After waiting patiently for six months, £500 towards the cost of the new dishwasher arrived in our account from the EHDC 106 Developer Contribution Fund. Every little helps. Details of the halls accounts for 2020 can be found on page xx.

Also on the evening of 29 May the Posh Nosh catering van will be in attendance outside the hall. More information on page XX.

The PLCFE (post lock-down celebratory Froyle event) has been restyled the Froyle Frolic. A sub-committee has been established and will meet shortly. More next month!
