How to help your Village Hall whilst you shop online with Amazon at no expense to you!
Do you shop online with Amazon?
If you do, you can help to raise much needed funds for the Village Hall at no expense to you by using Amazon Smile when you shop.
As a registered charity, during the last few months, we have been able to sign up with Amazon Smile. It’s simple and easy for you to use and here’s how you can do it.
Visit smile.amazon.co.uk where you’ll be asked to nominate a charity. Search for us under the name Queniborough Village Hall. When you’ve done that, bookmark or favourite smile.amazon.co.uk and use that link whenever you buy through Amazon rather than your Amazon App or the Amazon web site. In all other ways your Amazon experience will be the same as usual.
Queniborough Village Hall will receive a donation of 0.5% of the price of every eligible purchase you make through that link, and should you wish to you can change your nominated charity at any time. We are working hard to keep the Village Hall open, and with increased cleaning costs and reduced income every little extra donation is much needed.
Those of you who use the Hall regularly will be aware that towards the end of last year we had a problem with the Hall floor, when an area by the main door into the hall developed what could only be called a mound.
We marked it up and called in a specialist floor contractor, who assessed the situation for us, confirmed that they could actually remedy it and were then booked to carry out the repair and regular maintenance for a period when we would be causing least disruption to you, our users.
When the Hall reopens you will now find a fully refurbished, clean and shiny (but not slippery) floor.
Queniborough Village Hall will be holding its Annual General Meeting (AGM) by Zoom video conference on Wednesday 27th May 2020 at 7:00 pm.
Any Queniborough resident who wishes to attend can do so by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org no later than Monday 25th May to request a copy of the link to the meeting. The link will be emailed to you no later than a day before the meeting.
Our AGMs generally take about 30 minutes. This will be the first time we have held one by video link.
We aim to manage your village hall as safely and effectively as possible for all our users, contractors and volunteers. In light of the COVID-19 coronavirus situation, this means Queniborough Village Hall is closed until further notice.
These are difficult and worrying times for everyone, but we hope that you agree that by taking this step we are playing our part in some small way in trying to manage the spread of the virus.
We’re sorry to tell you that we have had to cancel the roller disco on Sunday due to insufficient ticket sales. We set ourselves a minimum target and haven’t reached it. This is a first for us. We do still plan to go ahead with the next one on 29th November and ask you to add it to your diary. If you have yet to receive a refund please phone us. Sorry to disappoint you.
