A successful pilot of the Littlehempston Youth Club was one of the achievements of the Community Space in 2017, outlined at the recent Annual Meeting. The Space is our “village hall” offering loads of events and activities that keep us all fit and entertained, whilst raising the money to keep our church open for all.
In 2017, the Space had an income of nearly £7,000, that included donations from the Fete, Lottery and the Bogan Trust. This income paid for a new boiler, heating, lighting, cleaning, repayment of the loans for the building works to create the Space and the Youth Club Pilot. A similar sum is generated by church activities, which covers insurance and church-related costs. Get in touch if you’d like a full Annual Report and Statement of Accounts.
A vote of thanks was passed at the meeting to Ken Wood, who started the Littlehempston Lottery, which to date has raised £4,200 for village causes. Pictured here is Space Team Chairman, James Dunn, who is doubly happy – he won first prize in the March 2018 quarterly draw and also received on behalf of the Space a donation for equipment for the new Youth Club. Thanks were given at the meeting to all who’d helped, including Kendal Tredinnick, who is stepping down from the Team.
New blood is needed, so if you’d like to join our friendly team, please get in touch – meetings are good-humoured, short, “well refreshed” and a great way to get involved in village life. Not keen on monthly meetings? Then why not offer to run a one-off event? Full support from the experienced team provided! Just get in touch for more information.
