logo with ext and door Jan 2019

The 2021 Village Hall ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING will take place via Zoom on Tuesday 6 July at 7pm.

To take part in the meeting:

  • email admin@lurgashallvillagehall.org as soon as you can prior the date and time of the meeting.
  • Copies of all the relevant papers will then be sent to you.
  • Finally, you will receive an email ‘invitation’ which will enable you to join the meeting.

The AGM is an important public opportunity to look back on this difficult year for the Village Hall year and to present the independently examined financial statements.

The year under review did enable us to have the hall beautifully re-decorated inside and out, so it is now refreshed and ready for finally re-opening in July, subject to government decisions.

Village Hall re-opening postponed until 19 July 2021

The Hall’s Management Committee is sad to have to report that we will not now be re-opening the Hall until 19 July, subject to the Government finally lifting covid restrictions.

We remain committed to putting the safety and wellbeing of our community first, and so we do not want to jeopardise anyone’s health by re-opening for events before we can be as sure as possible that it is safe to do so.

We sincerely hope that, from August onwards, the village can look forward to coming to the Hall to enjoy:

  • the annual village Horticultural Show, booked in the Hall for Saturday 14 August,
  • monthly Village Lunches and Teas, hopefully from August onwards,
  • monthly Film Nights – back on the first Wednesday of the month from October,
  • the return of Pilates classes, once the autumn chill brings them back inside from the green!,
  • the Lurgashall Archive Open Day – on Saturday 23 October.
  • the Arts & Crafts Exhibition – date to be confirmed but probably late October/early November.

The re-opening date will be reviewed at our next committee meeting on 6 July, and any updates will be posted on this website.

In the meantime, if you have any queries or requests for future Hall bookings, please contact the Booking Secretary on admin@lurgashallvillagehall.org

Thank you, once more, for your understanding and support.

Lurgashall Village Hall has a ‘makeover’!

For the last couple of months our Village Hall has been undergoing a ‘makeover’ at the very skilled hands of decorators Martin, Francis and Colin Dillon-Thiselton.

Inside and out, the hall is now gleaming!

During the work, pilates classes and other meetings were able to be held in the hall as usual, and we are very grateful to the Dillon-Thiselton brothers for accommodating our users and hirers so well.  Thanks, too, go to caretaker Anna Wilson for ensuring that all covid-related precautions and cleaning requirements were taken care of so that the hall was spotless and as covid-safe as possible for each event.

Sadly, just as the work came to a successful end, the government announced another covid lockdown, for the month of November, and so the hall will have to close again.

Who knows when we will be able to resume activities at the hall..? But we look forward to welcoming our community back to the hall as soon as we hear that it is safe to do so.

Tribute to Sue Lambot, Hon. Secretary to Village Hall Committee

In late September the village lost a dear friend and colleague with the sudden and tragic death of Sue Lambot due to a stroke.

Sue and her husband Andrew came to live in Lurgashall in 1995, and Sue soon became involved in many village activities.

In 2002 Sue was invited to become the Hon. Secretary of the Village Hall Committee, and together with the then Chairman, she oversaw the full refurbishment of the Village Hall in 2004/5 and many other improvements since.

Despite trying to ‘retire’ from the role a few years ago, she found herself irreplaceable and was finally persuaded to continue her work to maintain and enhance the Hall’s standards, including achieving the Level 2 Hallmark Award for Quality for the Hall.

Her amazing organisational skills, her quiet authority and her tireless willingness to help and guide others have steered the Hall to become the vibrant commuity hub that it is today.

The Village Hall Committee offers its most sincere condolences to Sue’s family.  She will be missed beyond words…
