GIVE YOUR SUPPORT
Friends of the Town Hall – Download application
A new year has begun and, we the committee, wish to express our sincere thanks to the Friends of Bellingham Town Hall for contributing to this scheme, which last year paid out £975 in prize money for 2017 including three extra prizes of £25 each in December. During the past year your contributions have been used to update the hall. The draw is made at the end of each month at the bingo which is held every Saturday night in the downstairs Community Room, access through Manchester Square, at 7pm. Everyone is welcome. We would also like to thank Graham and TomTom for running it.
The Committee are dedicated in keeping the Town Hall in good repair for the benefit of the local community. Your contributions are very much needed for the year ahead and we look forward to your continued support. The cost is £12 per person for a twelve-month period, with a monthly prize draw of £50 first prize and £25 for the second prize. Winners are announced on the Town Hall website, also in the Newsagents, The Country Store and the Bakers.
AN UPDATE OF THE HALL – Completed in 2017/18
- The new room downstairs at the back of the hall accessed at Manchester Square is now complete (where the old oil tanks used to be housed and have been removed). The room has its own front door; a new floor and the walls have been plastered and decorated. It is rented out to Melissa’s Beauty Box, she will open the shop 3 days a week to start with and gradually build up her business. We wish her every success in her venture.
- The public Library is also downstairs at the back of the hall and is open 2 days a week (Wed & Fri). It has settled in very well and is always pleased to see new borrowers. More info is on our website.
- The Tower Clock’s mechanism was not working. It was decided to purchase a new mechanism replacing the old … and it is working perfectly with the light showing the time during the hours of darkness.
- The Website has been upgraded and we continually update information as and when we can. Please take some time to have a look through on bellinghamtownhall.org.uk
- Legionella testing is carried out on a regular basis.
- The Town Hall fundraising Fairs, Jumble Sale and Bingo have all done very well.
- We are having a new sound system installed in the main hall in 2018.
On behalf of the Town Hall Committee, we thank you
