Lottery: our final monthly draw will take place on Wednesday 10th June at 11.00 outside the Village Stores. Laura has kindly agreed to make the final draw with a prize of £300.
2020/21 Lottery: plans are underway for a 2020/21 lottery with prizes totalling £1800 over 12 draws. All proceeds will go towards a new heating system for the Village Hall which we hope can be installed later in 2020. We succeeded in getting a ‘Business Interruption’ grant of £10K which will go a long way towards replacing the heating system.
New roof: our contractor has confirmed that we should shortly have a new date for the roof being replaced.
Village Hall re-opening: our Management Group are beginning the process of planning to reopen at some point in July. The earliest date for any public building to re-open is 4th July. Once we have a firm date to re-open we will share our revised procedures with all users and we look forward to welcoming you back.
Successful grant bid: our water heater has to be replaced and we have secured a £700 grant from Derbyshire County Council through Councillor Simon Spencer to buy and fit a new one in the kitchen.
Refurbishments: a team of volunteers have redecorated three toilets, repaired and varnished external window frames, and tackled several other small maintenance jobs over the past two months. We are very grateful to all who have helped out.
