Among the items covered by the Agenda were the following:
· Legal requirements regarding Health and Hygiene
· New Guidelines regarding Food Standards and Community Buildings
· Funding Opportunities.
Mr. Dennis Fettis, Environmental Health Officer at the Forest of Dean District Council, gave a very interesting and informative talk on food standards and legal requirements with regard to village halls and similar organisations. This was followed by a question and answer session.
These meetings are valuable, in as much as they provide an opportunity to meet other village hall members and exchange ideas and discuss common problems.
Hartbury Village Hall is a really lovely building, having only recently been rebuilt, and June and Sandra came away fully convinced that the Yorkley Village Hall Committee had made the right decision in applying for a grant to rebuild Yorkley Hall.
