The Village Hall Committee have been working on a series of opportunities in 2016.Major developments have included the installation of an air sourced heat pump (ASHP). This is essentially a large fridge working in reverse to take heat out of the air to heat the Hall and provide an eco-friendly, more controllable and cost effective solution to our ageing night storage and convector electric heaters. The system is managed online to provide us with much more flexibility and control and reducing our heating bills by perhaps as much as 65%. The other major projects for 2016 were the replacement with double glazed units of the remaining doors and windows. Finally the car park has been resurfaced to complement the internal redecoration that has been carried out. These improvements represent a substantial five figure investment, bringing our Village Hall up to the highest standards. We are very grateful to those organisations that provided grants and support for the work. These include -
~ Hampshire County Council ~ The Lottery Fund ~ Hambledon Parish Council
Village Hall Key Would hirers please ensure that they return the key promptly for the benefit of the next user. The keys are security coded and cannot be copied without the access codes - please dont lose a key, they are difficult to replace.
Car Park The car park is for the use of Village Hall users and occasional visitors by arrangement. Would residents please ensure that they do not regularly park their vehicles at the Village Hall.
Village Hall Business Plan The Business Plan summarises the current status of the Village Hall and includes comprehensive details of its management, operation, finances and future plans. The Plan is regularly reviewed and updated by the Village Hall Committee, we are currently (January 2015) performing against the targets and milestones outlined in the Plan. Please scroll down to the bottom of the page to access the Plan. if you have any further questions or comments please contact us via the Contact page.
Website and Booking System The Village Hall has streamlined its administration with the purchase of the Hallmaster system to manage bookings and invoicing. This means that our bookings can now all be handled online. There are numerous benefits to users in that they can check availability and prices, make provisional bookings and easily and quickly contact the Bookings Secretary. To complement the new system this new website has been developed. This will provide easy and simple access to the booking system and help to promote the excellent, modern facilities that the Village Hall provides.
