Village Hall Committee
Meeting 18 January 2015 at 7.30pm
2. Minutes of meeting 21st December accepted with amendments
3. Matters arising: None
4. WIFI hotspot for Village Hall. South Norfolk Council wants
to include opportunities for young people to make use of the
hot spot and to use Wacton Village as a Pilot scheme. As we
cannot fund or find a youth leader they may do so. The grant
may cover an X Box 1 and possibly some laptops. The Adult Computer
Club will go ahead. Agreed to charge £3 a session initially
as grant will cover costs of WIFI. Savings may be made so that
when grant finishes there may be funds to continue. Fortnightly
meetings planned, with coffee or tea. SB to write leaflet for
distribution in Wacton only initially, posters also needed.
CG to contact Kevin re leader for the adult group. Tuesday would
be good, or Thursday.
5. Treasurer's Report: Little change. Current account covering
annual costs and some outlay on building work is reducing but
still has £3012 in it with some more cash due in. CG to
calculate annual outgoings on utilities. Agreed to have gas
oven checked, care needs to be taken to avoid light fittings
being burnt. Peter Jaques may take on Treasurer task at AGM
6. Building Progress. Snagging list.: Hooks on toilet doors
and Bird Proofing eaves need attention. Agreed to experiment
with available adhesive supplied for acoustic panels and only
purchase new if needed as cost is about £540.
7. Possibility of regular Social Evening: Welcomed in principle
but Trustees cannot agree unless all costs eg re. licensing
are covered. SB to discuss increase in rates at SNC, Don has
information about licensed clubs. Friday would be an acceptable
evening but clearing up must be done on the night as often let
on Saturdays. Discussed having lockable shutters between Office
and Salteil room. Agreed to meet February 22 at 7.30 with those
wanting set up club.
8. Emergency Items; Kim Plum to be asked to run defibrillator
course. PR to fix either evening or Saturday ;Tony Rowson may
be able to source “dummy” from SNC.
