The committee is made up of local residents who wish to see the hall maintained and used by as many different groups as possible. We meet monthly and our main aim is to raise funds to ensure the continuation and development of the hall. Funds are raised in a number of ways :
- The hall is hired out to a number of local user groups and for private events such as weddings, birthday parties, christenings, company meetings, AGMs, etc.
- We run a number of events during the the year. These include music and themed events, the Christmas concert and the Upperthong Gala.
- Our members take part in sponsored events.
Of course, all this takes a little bit of organisation and commitment and we are always looking for new faces to come and help us run the hall and the events held in it. We often need bar staff too, so if you feel you would like to contribute to the Upperthong community please contact us and let us know! You can get involved as much or as little as you like – from being an elected post on the committee to running a stall at the Upperthong Gala or perhaps handing out leaflets throughout the village etc. We’ll just make a note of your level of commitment, add you to our list of little helpers and email you from time to time when there is something to do.
So, again, if you think you could become part of the fun, please get in touch.
