Slinfold Magazine item - June 2010

Slinfold Village Hall
New Presentation facilities have recently been installed in the Parish Room, considerably enhancing its attractiveness for meetings of up to about 40 people.  A ceiling-mounted projector, pull-down screen, amplifier and speakers now provide ‘plug-and-play’ facilities for presentations, slide shows, videos, etc..  These can be fed from one of the desktop computers provided, from a laptop computer, or from a DVD player.
A new Windows 7 computer and wide-screen monitor are also now available for the use of hirers as well as for use during the Friday morning ‘drop-in’ Computer Café sessions to assist residents with computing issues.
We would like to thank the Parish Council for grants
which covered most of the cost of the new facilities and equipment.
Wireless broadband internet is also available throughout the building.  In the Parish Room, this can be used in conjunction with the new presentation facilities to view internet pages on-screen.
If you would like a demonstration of any of the above facilities,
please contact ... .

ØØ All residents are welcome ××
The Village Hall is run as a charity for the benefit of the whole Slinfold community.  All residents are welcome at the Annual Meeting (details above) to discuss our future plans and tell us what you want from your hall.  The video being shown may be of interest to both older and newer residents.
The hall is managed and maintained by volunteers (keeping rental costs low).  A number of long-standing volunteers are reaching their ‘second retirement’ and we would welcome ‘new blood’, both on the management committee and amongst regular helpers.  If you are interested in helping — even in a small way — please come to the AGM and/or contact the chairman.
