Slinfold Magazine item - March 2012

Slinfold Village Hall News
Village Hall Blog
The web address of the Village Hall Blog was given incorrectly in last month’s Magazine: it should be blog.slinfoldvillagehall.co.uk (with a dot – not an @ sign). To remind you, the Blog enables easy and rapid publication of Village Hall information, and it is also accessible from the menu on our main website as well as directly from the address above. Information can be published there more quickly than through a printed Magazine, as well as longer information and detail not appropriate for inclusion here, including publication of Decisions from Trustee meetings.
We regret that we had to rearrange the meeting with existing, new and possible volunteers mentioned in the last Magazine. This will now be held on Wed 14th March at 7:30 p.m. at the Hall. If you might be interested in helping and would like to find out more — even if you can spare only the occasional hour or two — please contact us or just turn up. Note that the possibility of having a part-time caretaker does not affect our need for volunteers, but it should reduce the burden on all volunteers, new or existing.
