3. Chairman’s Report -  Graham Short read his report -

“Thank you to all our regular organisations who book the Hall, and in the coming year we have managed to get the Devon County Council to hold more of their regular meetings here.

 

Various fund raising events have taken place during the course of this year. We have run Bingos, a Supper Dance; Party in the Park; the Christmas Fayre and a New Years’ Eve Party. These events were all very successful social events and together raised over £3500. The spirit and support that we get as a Hall is fantastic from the Parish; thank you to everyone on the committee who was involved and helped at these events. A special thank you goes to Susan Short who is not on the committee but organises and helps run some of these events.

 

During the year we decided to Licence the premises as the Barnstaple Inn was still closed. We took advice on how to organise this and thanks to the hard work of Roy Webber, Caroline Baker and Paul Daw we were granted our Licence.

 

Early in the New Year we had the floor in the main hall and committee room refurbished. This involved sanding the entire old surface and polish off and then applying several hardening polish coats to obtain a new surface. The end result was excellent; keeping it to a high finish is ongoing. We are still in discussions with the manufacturers on how to keep the surface in good order. Thank  you to Paul for overseeing this operation.

 

Mr. Gordon Short has announced that he will not be standing again for the committee. Gordon has always had a soft spot for the Hall and has always been hands on with his work and support over the many years on the committee. He was in involved in the clearing of the site for the current building, and has been seen overseeing every extension right up to the current day. He served on the Devon County Halls Committee and was jointly responsible for issuing grants to many new halls and always making sure we got our fair share of funding. Gordon has given over 75 years’ service to the Parish through his work on the Hall committee and will be sorely missed.

 

The Committee have spent a lot of time in keeping the Hall up to date and compliant with various policies. There is a lot of work involved in doing this and as a result we have a more Robust operating procedure for future Committee members to follow. The cleaning and caretaker operations are keeping the hall to a very high standard. Thank you to the members that were involved in this work. 

 

Thank you to Burrington for your continued support by attending and helping with the functions we have in your Hall

 

The committee are pleased to confirm they will not be requiring any top up from the fund held on their behalf by the Parish Council this year.

 

4.Financial Report -  as discussed at earlier meeting. Accounts were proposed for acceptance by Jacqui Pateman-Jones and seconded by Kay Elworthy. The proposal was voted upon and agreed.  

 

5. Maintenance report – Paul Bailey stated that the hall is in generally good condition. The main hall walls and skirting boards have been painted. The committee room, middle cubicle in ladies toilets and the club end skirting board are to be painted.

There is an on-going issue with the hall floor since the refurbishment and further to the YFC disco being held. A representative from the company who carried out the work recently is due to visit this week. 

 

6. MUGA report -  The facility is in good order. The Hall Committee is responsible for the equipment and the Parish Council looks after the facility.  New corner protectors have been purchased recently and are to be fixed. New goals are in place. The Hall Committee is happy for the Parish Council to sign the MUGA document. 

 

7. Changes to the Model Deed – There are now 8 representative members (all filled) and 7 floor positions (2 of these are vacant owing to the earlier resignation of Gordon Webber and recent resignation of Tracy Ford). There are also 2 x co-opted member vacancies further to the resignation of Gordon Short.  Model  Deed to be amended accordingly.

Room hire income is similar to last year for the same period.

Caretaker wages – have risen by approximately £183 to date, and compared to the previous year end.

Grant Application  -  VAT on Committee Room extension  - it was noted that it had been previously decided to manage the grant funding for the extension by the Hall Committee rather than through the Parish Council. Gordon Short commented that this would result in the VAT not being able to be claimed back on the project – amounting to approximately £2000.

It was noted by a hirer recently that there was a lot of dogs mess around the hall – it was suggested that a CCTV camera may assist to identify culprits. This will be discussed with the Parish Council.

In the meantime the area will be cleaned and sprayed - any volunteers from the committee to help would be appreciated. (Date to be circulated).

It was suggested that a walk around with the caretaker to monitor tasks would be useful. (PB)

It was noted that the caretaker is very responsive to requests made and this was appreciated.

 

 

6. Maintenance Report –

a) Asbestos report – PB stated that an asbestos survey will take place on Friday 10 March and a full report will then be available for any prospective contractors to view before any work is carried out. The report will be reviewed annually as is a legal requirement. It will cost £200 and any samples taken will cost £25 per sample for testing.

Hall maintenance schedule – PB advised that the kitchen and bar area are due for painting but it is noted that these areas are satisfactory at present. On-going issues will be carried out.

It was agreed that SB will get some new promotion cards printed for the hall. (Estimate £20)

 

8. Grant Application   - PB stated that the new screens for the committee room have a 4 week lead in time.

The roller shutters to the bar and kitchen will be retained as new versions will be very similar. Shutters will have blinds added for acoustic and decorative benefit. PB will obtain samples to view.

Curtains in committee room – it was decided to retain these so they match the main hall when screen is open.  The tracking will be replaced to this window and the curtains re-hung.

The deaf-aid loop will be extended into the committee room.

The ceiling lighting and speakers will be replaced as part of the project and electric sockets will be repositioned and increased in number.

The Parish Council have been sent a letter asking if they would support this project with a grant of £2000. PB reported that the Parish Council currently have an application for funding for a self-winding clock mechanism in the Church – this grant application had been made on behalf of the Parish Council to the Landfill Board. This will be notified by June 2017. If funds are made available from this grant application then the Parish Council may release £2000 funding to the hall.  (Total estimate for project is £17000)
