FARNINGHAM VILLAGE HALL NEEDS A SOCIAL SECRETARY: The Hall is used every week during the year by local people and community groups for many different activities, such as yoga, dance, music, meetings, performances and productions.

The hall is managed by a small committee of volunteers. The aim is to raise enough income from the hire fees paid for the activities at the hall to cover the hall maintenance, plus a little extra to pay for repairs and improvements. Can you offer a few hours to volunteer as the social secretary?

The committee is looking for one or two volunteers to help put on a couple of fund-raising events like a quiz, a show, or sale to help raise some funds. Volunteering can provide a chance to use your talents, develop your skills, meet new people and make a useful contribution to the local community. If you are interested please contact Viv Parker on 01322 862330 or email:
