Longford Village Hall is run as a charity and one of the key responsibilities of all charities is to remain solvent.

Following a recent (October 21) review of the Hall’s income and expenditure it is evident that we have been running at a loss. This is is not sustainable.  The key factors responsible for this are

  • The impact of inflation.

  • The increased costs for utilities (gas, electric and water).

  • Not raising hire charges for several years.

At the last Village Hall Committee Meeting on 26th October 2021 the Trustees agreed to increase prices from 1st January 2022 for hiring the Hall, see left for the new prices.

Longford Village Hall - Your Community Needs Your Skills! 

We’re looking for additional Committee Members. 

The monies that were granted when the new estate was developed have proved not to be enough to match even our modest ambitions (see the Improvements Page). Even the extension will require additional funding for which are taking a number of approaches:

  • Making funding applications to funding organisations.

  • Raising money through specific events (see this page for more detail).

Things are starting to happen  after a long period of work behind the scenes during the Covid-19 lockdown. 

 

We have a number of objectives we need to achieve in order to make our Village Hall the wonderful welcoming community space it deserves to be and should be.  The current Committee needs you to make this happen.  

 

Bigger is Better!

Come and join us at an exciting time for Change!

 

Please ring 07843 772627 or email lvh.friends@gmail.com to register your interest.  

We can’t wait to hear from you and you will receive a warm welcome. 

 

Kindest regards from Phil, Chair and all of the Longford Village Hall Committee
