Llanteg Village Hall Chairman’s Report 2017
Good evening Ladies and Gentlemen, my thanks to you all for attending the AGM and more importantly for the support and time you’ve all given during 2017 all of which is much appreciated.
I express thanks to our Treasurer Mary for her thorough financial statement and for all her hard work on our behalf. Personally, I hope that Mary continues in this role in the forthcoming year.
My thanks go to our Secretary Sue James for the efficient manner in which she carries out her duties, and ensuring things run smoothly.
In addition, my appreciation goes to Ruth Roberts as our Publicity Officer for all her work and good ideas, especially for the work she puts into the village web site and news letter. The latter is now almost self financing and since it is now printed in colour, with graphics available for advertisers, it has become a very effective means of communicating with all of our community!
My appreciation for the entire committee’s enthusiasm and efforts over the past year, since without you, this hall could not survive.
As for hall finances:
Income from hall is slightly down on the previous year ( £3736/ £3,861), our net profit has fallen (£508/£991)due to roof repairs.
The 100 club remains an important part of our income stream and thanks go out to all who support it, don’t forget “you’ve got to be in it to win it”. Due to increased membership our prizes have now increased.
Therefore a huge thanks to our very loyal supporters; Llanteg and Badgers short mat bowls clubs, Llanteg History Society, and New Life Church. Along with those who support us by holding functions and meetings etc. here, thanks to you all.
Turning to the community:
In the summer the second “Llanteg Fun Day” was held at Rose Cottage and was organised by Jo and Polly Raymond, raising an amazing £2790 for the Welsh Air Ambulance Service. We all had a great day and crowds turned up to make it a resounding success. Well done Jo and Polly, this is what community spirit is all about, huge thanks to you and everyone else who worked to make this possible.
In September our monthly drop in took the form of a Macmillan Coffee Morning, it was hosted by Jeni from The Wanderers Rest, who supplied delicious cakes and raffle prizes, and with her second event at The Wanderers in the afternoon a grand total of £153.50 was raised for Macmillan. Thanks to Jeni for all her hard work.
Many thanks to John James, who throughout the year spends time cutting grass and weeding at both the Village Green and Clay pits and also keeps the bus shelter in a clean and tidy state, also thanks to Tony for keeping the Llanteague chapel grounds neat and tidy. If anyone feels they can spare some time to weed and cut grass with us it would be greatly appreciated.
Finally, thanks go to Jill Roberts for organising our community walks throughout the past year, which after this winter I’m sure we are all looking forward to some drier ones in 2018.
Mary proposed a vote of thanks to Roy for chairing the meetings throughout the year.
