Slinfold Village Hall
Helpers wanted: In order to keep hall rental costs as low as possible, the hall is managed and maintained by volunteers. We have lost several helpers over the last year as a result of retirement and house moves, and are urgently looking for additional help for various tasks, including checking the hall, preparing it for bookings, odd jobs, periodic maintenance, administration, etc..  If you feel you could help in any way — however small — or would like more information, we would love to hear from you. Further information is available on the Village Hall website at SlinfoldVillageHall.co.uk, or please contact: Neil Peachey (Chairman of the Trustees) or Trevor Dayneswood (Vice-chairman).
Village Hall Kitchen: the kitchen facilities have recently been enhanced by the addition of:
  • An Autofill Water Boiler (replacing the old urn): once up to temperature (about 20 mins), almost-boiling water (96 deg C) is available ‘on tap’ for hot drinks and washing-up. For only small amounts of washing up, it may be easier and more economical to use a small amount of very hot water from the new Water Boiler rather than switch on the immersion heater for the hot tap water.
  • A commercial Dishwasher with a wash cycle time of 2 mins per wash & rinse (again, after an initial heating time of about 30 mins). This is not expected to be used for small amounts of washing up, but should prove very useful for larger functions and parties.
The Village Hall Trustees are grateful to the Parish Council for a grant that covered most of the cost of the new equipment.
