The Village Hall Committee AGM was held on 28th April last. The Chairman, Karen Pettyfer detailed the busy year (a melee of mad moments!) just passed starting with Rushden’s first comedy night, fete (soggy!), the Christmas Fair and tree festival in the Church with a delightful concert from Sandon School.
All this and other hard work has meant that once again the hall can be refurbished and improved to a high standard including a new awning for the BBQ area which gets good use and qualified for a NHDC grant.
More ‘events’ are planned (to which food and drink will undoubtedly be added) PLUS Rushden’s first ever ‘panto’ to be held on 6th and 7th Feb. 2015. (Note these dates in your diary ! Ed.)
It was agreed that the name of the panto should be released in stages. The first stage is therefore “ xxxx xxxxx xx’ x’xxx”.
(After this startling revelation. Ed.) A new committee (Trustees) was then elected from which the following were elected as officers :

Chairman   Debs Collis

Vice Chairman Ann Garrott

Secretary Elspeth Gutteridge

Treasurer   Sue Whiting

Bookings Secretary  Sue Whiting ++

Maintenance  Richard Lewis

Post script :                 
Calling all Mrs (and Mr) Mops of Rushden to help spring clean the village hall. Bring ladders, window cleaning kit, brushes etc …and (er) mops! Also to help re-organise the store room. Hurrah!! Time : 11 am, Date Sat. 7th June.
