Snells Hall Needs New Wardens!
After three very good years as wardens at the hall, Dan and Lou are moving on.
This gives an opportunity to another couple to live in Snells House, which is
attached to the hall in a beautiful part of the village, and look after the hall,
which is a key village asset.
The rent is reasonable and the hall pays for the wardens to carry out
cleaning, caretaking, gardening and taking bookings and looking
after hall hirers. Wardens' duties take about 1 to 1.5 hours per day.
If you are interested, or if you know someone who might be, please email
snellshall@hendred.org or call Charles on 835014 for an informal chat.

Photo Competition - Win £500 for you and £1000 for your village hall!
Allied Westminster are holding a photo competition on the theme:
"Village Life - a photo which characterises the value of community in your village"
See www.hendred.org for more details.
Details of prizes, theme and entry dates are in the RULES available from
https://facebook.com/AlliedWestminster from where you will be able to enter
