Construction starts on Phase 2 of Hall Extension Project!
On 16 October 2023 construction started on Phase 2 of our comprehensive scheme to extend and improve the Hall. The scheduled work will continue until May next year and the Hall will remain open and fully in use throughout. For further information about the scheme, what it will provide and how it is going to be paid for, go to the Hall Extension section.
Cinema in Caryford has a new organiser
The Hall Committee has now successfully run Cinema in Caryford, in conjunction with Moviola, for a year. Sarah Cook has become our new organiser and with her team of volunteers handling publicity, box office, bar and front of house, will continue to screen popular and recently released feature films and occasional documentaries. Go to the What's On section for details of future screenings.
Members' Annual Meeting
The second Annual Meeting of the Assocation which owns and runs the Hall was held on 19 July 2023. The Trustees' Annual Report and Financial Report, together with the Independent Examiner's report, were presented to the members. The Association's Annual Return has now been filed with the Charity Commission.
Fundraising Events and other Live Performances
The Committee's Events and Fundraising Group has put together an exciting programme of events and live performances for the Autumn and Winter Seasons. Go to the Whats On section to get further details including on tickets and booking arrangements.
Trustees' Committee and Hall management
In July 2022 the Hall retained its Hallmark Three Tier standards following inspection by the Community Council for Somerset, demonstrating the high standards of our facilities and performance in managing the hall's operations.
David Bright and Caroline Reeves have recently joined our Trustees' Committee. We would still welcome additional members and anyone interested in joining the Events and Fundraising Group. In particular, we are still seeking someone who can help us with premises management: overseeing repairs and maintenance and liaising with contractors to keep the building up to standard and safe for those who use it. Anyone interested or wanting more information should contact Ian at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone him on 01963350655.
