Dear Neighbour,

I’m delighted to be able to take this opportunity to introduce myself as the new Chairman of your Village Hall Committee. My name is Gary and I live in Bromfield with my wife and our 2 young sons.

I’m very excited to be able to help take the Village Hall forward into the new decade and build upon all the hard work that Adrian and Liz have put in during Adrian’s tenure as Chairman.

In order for us to move forward into the future we need more helpers and volunteers, specifically we need people who can commit to joining the Committee. We are desperately short of people to help organise and run events. We also need people to support events run by the Village Hall. At present some are well supported but many are not.

Our next Committee meeting is on Wednesday 22 January at 7:30pm and we need people who can join the committee to come to the meeting and help us to keep the Village Hall going.

Unfortunately, if we don’t get enough volunteers joining the Committee on Wednesday, I’m afraid my tenure as Chairman will be a short one as the Committee will be forced to take the difficult decision to close the Village Hall.

Please, if you can give up just a small amount of your time to help us keep the Village Hall going as a community asset, I would beg you to come along on Wednesday and give us your help and support.

Thank you,

Gary Bickley


Blencogo Village hall Committee.

PS, If you can’t make the meeting on Wednesday but you’re interested in joining the committee could you please email your details to
