The new parking policy at the village hall car park
The village hall car park now prohibits any vehicles
to be left in the car park between the hours of midnight to 7.30am, unless a
valid permit issued by the village hall management committee is displayed.
This restriction came into force on the 1st October. The car park is
checked on random days and times and any vehicle without a permit will be
subject to a £100 fine.
The benefits of the new restriction has already been
seen as we no longer have an almost full car park at the start of the day
and, more importantly, there are more empty car parking spaces for our
!!!!! The Stage extension is finished and the stage had its
first use for the Pantomime (Bluebeard) in February 2017
However, there are other projects in
the pipeline including replacement of the uninsulated roof of the large
hall. Please send any donations to Greg Allen, Treasurer, The Old Post
Office, 2 Gore Square, Bishops Lydeard, Taunton, TA4 3BW. Cheques should be
made payable to ‘Bishops Lydeard Village Hall Improvement Fund’. Donations
can also be sent by bank transfer and can be Gift Aided. For information

HOW YOU CAN HELP US
Village Hall Committee’s aim is to enhance and improve the Village Hall thus
making it a more user friendly and versatile facility for the village.
This aim started with the
resurfacing of the car park and continues with the new Small Hall and the
replacement of Play Park equipment as described above. The Village Hall
Management Committee is now looking for grants for the next phase of development
which will be an extension of the Mount St. end of the Large Hall to accommodate
a permanent stage.
Village Hall Management Committee would welcome new members who would like to
help in the running of this important village facility. Why not come along to
our AGM (date to be advised) to find out more and to give us suggestions on
events or activities you would like to see provided.
As the hall development
programme continues so the workload involved in keeping it running increases.
There are many tasks involved in running the Village Hall, such as -:
Maintenance of the hall and grounds.
Fund raising planning and helping at events
planning and applying for grants
The more people we have
involved in the running of the Hall the smaller the workload for the individual,
so if you feel you would like to help and have some time to spare please
contact either Richard Peacocke (01823 432740), Greg Allen (01823 430421) or Alan Ball
