Report of AGM held on Monday 23rd March
John Risdon remarked that another satisfactory year had flown by and the refurbishment of the Kitchen was a great improvement.
Lisa Edey reported the accounts showed a small annual deficit of £316.79, which considering the £8.2K cost of maintenance was an excellent result. Turnover exceeded £13K similar to last year. We thank those who have contributed to fund-raising and donations to the value of £1.4K.
All three officers were re-elected for another year.
Report of Committee Meetings on 26th Jan & 23rd Mar
A permanent, electrically operated, 6ft square projector screen with stand has been fitted for the use of anyone in the community. The cost of £690 was partly met by a W.I. donation of £250.
Radiator covers are being considered to minimise the risk of burns, but in the mean time thermostatic radiator valves are being fitted.
Galmpton Pre-School has bid for a Torbay Grant to buy a new child-friendly safety surface for the courtyard, which would also enhance its appearance.
There will be no major maintenance work this year, but the flat roof over the ladies toilets has been renewed, some new coat-hooks have been fitted in the foyer, and the window curtains will be re-lined.
A new Community Partnership for Galmpton, Churston, and Broadsands was launched at the meeting in March. See Page 19 for details.
The hall will be in use on Thursday 4th June for MEP election polling. The next committee meeting will be at 7:30 pm on Monday 29th June.

The glass recycling bins are now on the other side of the single garage in The Weary Ploughman car park. They are not visible from the entrance, but a sign on the garage, where they used to be, explains where they are.
