Save Little Paxton Village Hall from Closure

Village Hall faces closure unless new committee can be appointed.

Little Paxton Village Hall which is used by over 14 village groups will close at the end of the August unless residents come forward and join a new Management Committee.

The three remaining members of the Village Hall Management Committee (VHMC) have stood down at the July AGM however there will be a two month hand over period to a new committee.

Earlier in the year the VHMC tried to attract new members which was unsuccessful.

The VHMC has contacted Little Paxton Parish Council for help to attract new members for a new Committee.

The hall will only remain open if residents come along to a public meeting on Saturday 5th August 10.30am-11.30am in the village hall and join the new Management Committee.

Mr. Trevor Herbert outgoing Village Hall Chairman said ‘Little Paxton Village Hall is where many village groups and organisations meet on a weekly basis. To close the hall would have such a major impact on the local community’.

The Village Hall Management Committee meets once a month and meetings last approx 1.5 hours. A new committee requires 12 people including a Chairman, Vice Chairman, Secretary and Treasurer as well as ordinary committee members.
The village hall accounts has been outsourced to a local accountancy firm.

Parish Clerk Jenny Gellatly said’ Little Paxton needs its village hall. It is an asset to the residents of Little Paxton and provides a meeting place to a large number of village groups spanning all age groups. If the hall were to close this would also affect annual events such as Paxfest, Christmas Bazaar, Presentation evenings, Quiz nights etc.

Cllr Jean Matheson, Parish Council Chairman said’ The residents of Little Paxton need a village hall and the village hall needs Little Paxton residents to ensure the hall is to remain open.’
