Read by Ray and copies made available.

Earthsea House/ Merrywood are booking the hall more often than before and therefore helping the hall keep in profit. £733.77 profit in 2015 (running account). Money has been saved on cleaning costs as Ray and Susan are doing the cleaning, unpaid. The job has been advertised.

Read by Ray and copies made available. £848.05 profit in 2015.

Procedures for hiring the hall are under review following a booking in March 2016 which turned into a “rave”. This disaster prompted the committee to tighten up booking procedures e.g. rewording the booking form and taking a deposit.

Chairman: Ray Grant. Proposed by Julie Turner, seconded by Roger Human. Treasurer: Christine Harrison. Proposed by Rita Barker, seconded by Brian Winchester.  Other committee members are Sally Blyth representing Bellfolk, Julie Turner co-opted and Linda Human representing the Parish Council.
