Following a break for Christmas and the New Year, Tai Chi classes will be re-starting on Jan 16th 2018 – see below for information:
If you are planning on coming on foot from ‘New Liverton’ to the Hall to cast your vote on Thursday (8th), please be aware that there is a public footpath between ‘Old Liverton’ and ‘New Liverton’ – see below. This is much safer than attempting to walk along Old Liverton Road from Cummings Cross to the Hall, a dangerous stretch of road that has no walkway. Using the safer footpath should add no more than a few minutes to your journey (you come out beside the bottom path entrance to Pottery Yard, with the Hall at the top) – and you will have much nicer views of the countryside!
Our Community Kitchen Enhancement Project was completed during August. This project involved enlargement of the main kitchen hatch (and installation of roller shutters) as well as the purchase of an new 80-piece crockery and cutlery set – with additional mugs and glasses too. The slide-show above displays before-and-after photos of the hatch. This project is part of our drive to increase community use of the hall facilities by making it more attractive for community events. And what good timing: Saturday September 17th sees our first Pop-Up Restaurant, organised by The Seasoned Kitchen!
This work was supported by a generous donation from Dartmoor National Park Authority’s Dartmoor Communities Fund 2015/16.
Sadly, it has been decided that we will not be holding a Summer Event in the Hall this year. This is for two reasons: the lack of available time among the Committee necessary to make the event a success and a recognition of the difficulty in attracting people to one amongst so many competing events and activities held during the Summer Holidays; we hope to take forward the idea of a community ‘bring-and-share food’ social event at another time – maybe during the Winter months.
In the meantime, we will be putting our efforts into ensuring that our exciting November event – a live Salsa band at the Hall! – is a rip-roaring success; see the home page for details.
The hall will be closed for two blocks in August: first we are having the main servery hatch enlarged as well as some external rendering repaired; in the second block the floor is to be repaired and re-varnished. We are sorry for the inconvenience.
Here is a date for your Summer diary: Saturday 20th August. We have reserved the Hall for the afternoon and evening. It may be a traditional Summer Fête, like last year, or it may be a little different. If you are interested in helping arrange the event, or have any novel ideas, then do get in touch via ‘Friends of the Hall‘ page. Whatever shape the event takes, we look forward to seeing you there!
We are hosting a ‘Christmas Social’ on 20th Dec from 4 to 6pm. For details see the poster:
Let us know if you plan to come along (with no.s) via the form on the home page.
The Village Hall will host a coffee morning in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support on Wednesday September – from 10.00am until 1pm.
All are welcome.
Details to follow – but put this date in your diary! We will be hosting a Fête-Planning Meeting and Community Get-Together in early June; the first part of the evening will provide the opportunity for local people to become involved in organizing the fête, then this will open-up into a more general social evening, giving the opportunity for members of the community to meet some of the Hall Committee Members, as well their neighbours. Details to follow – and Old Liverton residents will be leafleted. To keep up to date with this – and all other Liverton Village Hall News – subscribe below to receive news blog posting via email.
