Northwold Village Hall

You may recall receiving a questionnaire about Northwold Village Hall in a previous edition of Village Life - well, the committee have been busy compiling the results and here they are: -

Current use: Yes No
Used in last 2 years 70 3
Attended meeting 49 20
Attended surgery 50 24

Future use: Yes No
Would use more 73 5
Support new meetings** 71 6
Hold party 65 14

**On 63 returns there were suggestions for meetings, these are shown on the right.
One paper wrote "Old Gits" - this could not easily be combined with others it was felt.
One remarked "You would get lottery money if you were to build a hall elsewhere".
A full letter from a nearby resident stated that it was the wrong place for private parties as they had been greatly disturbed by bad behaviour in the past. In concluded - "if private parties are to be permitted there, there MUST be a reasonable finishing time STRICTLY ENFORCED".
