Village Hall Newsletter


Welcome to the latest from the Natland & Oxenholme Village Hall team.

Many of the hall users are winding down for a Christmas & New Year break from their regular sessions, perhaps with a seasonal flavour for their last gathering of 2019, and though the hall will be less used over the holiday period there are some one-off Christmas and New Year bookings. 

The hall committee are planning to have the small hall re-decorated during summer 2020.  We'll keep you updated as our plans evolve, and we're always receptive to hall user's ideas for improvements. 

The Annual Craft Fair & Exhibition in early November raised £817 for hall improvement works - so thank you to all who supported this event as a visitor or volunteer.  After several years Sue & Ian Ellison are stepping back from organising this annual event, so our thanks to them.  This does however mean that we're in need of a someone to take the lead on booking and co-ordinating stall-holders for next year's Craft Fair - supported by committee members  organising the refreshments, raffle and helpers on the day.  To ease the transition Ian & Sue have left a well-documented 'How to...' guide so if there is anyone who could help on this front please contact Sarah ( 535251)  or Midge ( , 01539 731727) to find out more about what's involved - without any commitment at this stage!

In 2020 our next event is the annual Art Exhibition of works for sale by local artists taking place at the hall on the weekend 13th -14th March.   Invitations to local artists who've previously participated will be sent out in January, but if you're a 'new' artist who'd like to exhibit please let Sarah have your contact details. 

And finally if you're new to the village, or now looking to play a part keeping the community socially thriving, why not consider joining the village hall team - we'd love to hear from you.

Seasons greetings to all our readers
