Christmas & New Year at the Victory Hall

The Christmas season has seen a number of community events at the Victory Hall commencing with the Christmas Market on Saturday 24th November followed by fish and chips in the evening. Both events were well attended and the market provided an opportunity to see Father Christmas!
The Christmas lunch on Sunday 9th December was a sumptuous feast provided by Emma Parris and Kim Harvey they were ably supported by a team of assistants who worked tirelessly in the kitchen and served at the tables.
New Year commenced with Brian Drew’s traditional walk that started at the Victory Hall in the glorious sunshine and took a circular route via Shore Bottom finishing back at the hall where Loops Curnoe and Annie Williams and their team provided a welcome lunch.
A very big THANK YOU to everyone who helped organise and deliver these events and to everyone who supported the events on the day.

Proposed Youth Club

The Hall Committee recently circulated a questionnaire to the children and youth of the parish asking if they would be interested in attending a youth club at the Victory Hall. The questionnaire asked about the type of activities they would be interested in and whether any parents would be willing to help in the organisation of the club, a total of 72 questionnaires were sent. The responses to the questionnaire showed there were a large number of children in the age range 9 –14 who support the idea and a number of parents indicated that they were willing to assist. The Hall Committee have analysed the returned questionnaires and will now progress the proposal to the next stage. The parents who have offered to help will be contacted in the New Year with a view to holding a meeting to discuss how they would be able to support a youth club.
There are many subjects to be considered when forming a youth club including funding and legislative compliance. We will keep you updated with progress.
