Could you spare a few hours for Pant Memorial Hall?

As a charity, the oversight of Pant Memorial Hall is delegated to a small committee who keep the hall running for the benefit of the community.

The committee members are villagers, or people who live in the local area, and only meet three times a year to keep things running smoothly.

Next month sees the Annual Meeting at the hall, and the committee is seeking local people, who could attend just three meetings a year, to come along and stand for election.

Being a member of the committee doesn’t require any special skills, just an interest in making sure the hall is run in accordance with its charitable aims of providing a meeting place for various groups in the village.

Each of the committee meetings only lasts an hour or two, so the time commitment for new members is about six hours a year, especially as increasingly decisions are made by email or telephone where required.
The committee needs to have a minimum of seven members, but can accommodate more to ensure a wide range of views and opinions are considered.

According to hall chairperson Sean: “We aim to keep meetings to the minimum needed to ensure good governance of the charity and we also aim to keep them sociable too.”

Being a committee members is a great way to play your part in the community and would be really helpful in keeping the Memorial Hall as a vibrant asset for the village.

Committee meetings currently take place either at the hall or in the Cross Guns, usually in the early evening.

The AGM takes place on Saturday, 14 March 2020 at 2.30pm.

If you would like to find out more about being a committee member, then please email secretary@pantmemorialhall.org.uk or come along to the meeting.
