NOTICE OF ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING 2021

Details of the AGM, including documentation

Lands Village Hall Trust supports and promotes a vibrant community in the Lands and Morley area. This includes High Lands, Low Lands, Morley, and Lands Bank areas of Teesdale in the North East of England.

The village hall is an accessible, welcoming space. It is available to enjoy many activities, such as:

  • social, educational, and fitness groups;
  • support groups, and interest clubs; and,
  • community events.

The hall enjoys the support of the local community around Lands and Morley. Consequently, all the Trustees on the Management Committee live in the Lands and Morley local area. Trustees and supporters manage the hall, maintain the villages’ green spaces, and support the community in any way we can.

Recently, the hall fell on hard times. But, the Trust is now under the leadership of nine local Trustees. The Trustees want to improve the hall and make it relevant to the community again. So, we seek to update the hall and modernise what it does. Therefore, we are raising funds to support the reopening of the hall.

Help Lands Village Hall

The Trust is fundraising and needs donations to support its aims. In particular, we seek donations of time and materials to modernise our facilities. At the moment, the electrical distribution and heating in the hall is under renovation. Any donations of wiring, lighting, power sockets, etc. (meeting current regulations and standards) are welcome. So, please get in touch if you would like to donate or sponsor!

Once we’re out of the COVID-19 lockdown, we are planning a number of fundraising events to help us meet our goals. Our business plan includes refitting the electrics, renewing the kitchen, decoration, and improving our outside spaces. So, if you are able to help with any of these plans, we want to hear from you!

Additionally, watch out for more information on upcoming events, fundraising, and hall hires.
