Painting Party Thanks

The trustees wish to thank the volunteers who came along on Saturday 20th to paint the new storerooms and kitchen. Dennis Ayling, Barry Coburn, Lisa Cornell, Peter Dale, Alan Galley, Guy Musgrave, Carole Trow and John Trow did a great job. Sue Ayling, Sue Barton, Doreen Till and Elizabeth Willoughby supported the team in providing homemade scones and coffee cake, biscuits and plenty of cups of tea and coffee which were greatly appreciated.

We are grateful for their willingness to give their time and energy in support of the Village Hall, allowing us to continue the renovations and improvements and provide this facility for our community. Carole Trow

Once the hall is insulated it will be all hands on deck again to decorate the hall.

Anyone is welcome to join and share skills, ideas and a little of their time to help with fundraising efforts and to offer a range of social events for the village. If you are interested in joining the Sessay Village Events Committee or can help out at a specific event come along to the meeting or email Heather Dale here. Next meeting Wednesday May 22nd 7:30 at Lisa’s house!

Sessay Community Trust

We would like to take this opportunity to thank Guy for his hard work and commitment over many years as Chairman. As Chairman he has worked through many challenging periods, including at one stage being Chairman of both the Village Hall Committee and Cricket Club. We will not lose Guy’s organisational memory, which will continue to be valued in the future as has expressed his commitment to remain as a trustee and continue to support the village hall and it’s refurbishment.
The trustees look forward to working with all of you to continue fundraising for the refurbishment of the building to ensure the longevity of the village hall for all of its users and the benefits it brings to the community.

Village Hall Refurbishment

The next few weeks will see another step forward in the phased refurbishment when the main hall receives new air source heat pump heating systems and has internal wall and roof insulation fitted. There are other small details such as safety handrails, curtains and floor coverings arriving. Unfortunately for the first time there will be some disruption to the use of the hall. All users have been notified and events cancelled or re-sited in the bar area. Please continue to take care in the building whilst this is going on.

Friday night is Juniors cricket practice night and the bar opens at 6 and will close when were done! Its a nice social evening and full stop to the week. Keep up with gossip.
