Good Morning,

DVHA AGM at Horton & Chalbury Hall

The event was open to representatives of all Village and Community Halls in Dorset, with over 20 halls represented, and 5 joining DVHA on the day.

We welcome Tony Gibb of Sixpenny Handley Village Hall to the Committee.

DVHA AGM at the Great Dorset Halls Fair

 Our AGM for the years 2011-13, which was postponed in May is now arranged for the 4th October at 5pm in the Allendale Centre, Wimborne at the end of our Great Dorset Halls Fair.

The Agenda was as follows:

AGM

DVHA AGM Postponed

 I am sorry to have to tell you that we have reluctantly decided to postpone the AGM and Open meeting, due to lack of support. We had potentially the lowest turnout of any AGM in our existence, and it was not deemed fair to ask professional speakers and suppliers to turn out at a weekend for this. We feel it would be better to attach the business of an AGM to an event with wider appeal to Hall members instead.

NOW ARRANGED TO BE IN THE 'HALLS FAIR' IN WIMBORNE ON FRIDAY 4TH OCTOBER

DVHA AGM 2013 at Litton Cheney

 This year, we will be meeting on Saturday 11th May at the recently-built Community Hall at Litton Cheney – just off the A35 about 8 miles west of Dorchester. We have chosen this very busy new hall so that we can hear from the Chairman of the committee that planned, built and run it.

NOW POSTPONED TO BE PART OF THE 'HALLS FAIR' IN WIMBORNE ON FRIDAY 4TH OCTOBER

Contract Opportunity for Meeting and Event Venues

Dorset County Council is going out to tender for the provision of meeting rooms and venue hire in Dorset.

The County Council realises that it would be uneconomical for some small voluntary organisations, such as village and community halls, to participate in this electronic tender process, given the infrequent and ad hoc nature of its bookings. However, in order to continue being booked by County Council staff, village and community halls will need to be able to fulfil three criteria in future. These are:

Fundraising with Skittles

Hire Our Portable Skittle alley and make money. The Stratton Summer Fayre Committee built a new portable Skittle alley over the winter of 2010/11, and this is now available for hire at a very competitive rate for local communities. The alley comes complete with all the pins and balls you will need. Contact Tracy Hughes on 01305 267480 or strattonsummerfayre@gmail.com for more details.

Entertainment Groups in Halls

I am Brian Baggott (Ex Moreton Village Hall & DVHA Committee).  Pat, myself and two girls are trying to get together a Theatre/Folk/Entertainment group who could travel around Dorset and put on plays or arrange for professional groups to use Moreton Village Hall. 

Can anyone put me in touch with those village halls who put on Arts entertainment so I can pick their brains on setting up the venture
