New Windows (Part 2)  01/08/2019

We can now confirm that the new windows will be installed on 28th – 30th August. We apologise if this causes any problems with any bookings on those days, but we aim to keep any disruption to a minimum.

 

New Windows  16/07/2019

As part of our programme of improvements to the village hall, we aim to replace all the windows in the next few weeks. The existing aluminium windows have been in place for many years now, and are no longer fit for purpose as they are warped and the catches are broken and cannot be locked.  PVCU double glazing will reduce heating costs as well as cutting our carbon footprint over time. They can also be locked, which will increase overall security of the building. This follows on from the replacement doors which have also made a difference to the security of the hall.

The village hall is a valuable asset for Cheswick Green, and we aim to keep it in the best condition for many years to come.

Licences  09/07/2019

We have recently had requests for licenced bars to be allowed inside the village hall in conjunction with events. Please note that the Management Committee will not support or approve these requests. In fact, there is a covenant in place in the deeds to the village hall, that was placed in there when the hall was built, that specifically prevents alcohol to be produced or sold within the village hall.

We have received a donation from a trust fund administered by trustees at Salter Street church, and the money will be used to make further improvements to the village hall for the benefit of all residents of Cheswick Green – see attached letters for further information:

Toilet refurbishment  09/07/2019

Please be aware that the refurbishment of the toilets will be starting shortly, and there may be some disruption during this work, so please bear with us. The process has taken a bit longer than expected, but contracts with the preferred contractor will be signed shortly so the work can commence soon. It’s likely to be during the school holidays in August.
