Because of the increasing use and popularity of our village hall, the Village Hall committee has arranged for a professional cleaner to clean the hall floors once a week for an hour.  Lynne Poynter cleans the hall, kitchen and toilet floors.  However, the people on the cleaning rota are still needed to keep an eye on the general cleanliness of the kitchen, loos, and other aspects of the hall.  Although the organisations that use the hall mostly leave it clean and tidy, there is an overall need to make sure that the hall is in order for those that subsequently use it.  This means that, after use, the main hall, meeting room, kitchen and loos should be checked for cleanliness and the waste bins emptied into the dustbin near the oil tank beside the hall and any items for recycling put outside in the appropriate box.

Many thanks to the generous people listed below who have agreed to be on the cleaning rota, especially those who are not on the village hall committee.  The key to the hall is available from the villagers’ stores.  Please contact Amanda Elliott if you have any queries ( or 07973754719).  Please feel free to swap your dates with other volunteers if needs be.  With very many thanks for your continued help.
