Last Saturday's "Meet the Committee" event could I think be judged a success as we finished the morning with a large pile of completed questionnaires and a healthy looking list of new Friends of the Community Centre. All have now been added to our emailing list and can expect to hear from us very soon.... The event was covered in the local papers and if you didn't complete one of our questionnaires, they are to be found in Knighton Library, Harry Tuffin's and Tower House Gallery.
The next meeting of the Comm Management Committee is on Monday 21st at 7.30pm. Anyone interested in attending please ring 07751221487.
Oh, and the picture shows Chairperson Karen Plant and Fund Raiser Dominique Jones with three members of the public clearly delighted to be asked to contemplate the future of the Community Centre and complete our questionnaire.
Welcome one and all to our first news post. Its purpose is to announce that the Committee or members thereof will be skulking around in the lobby at the Food and craft Market this Saturday thrusting leaflets at the public and hoping to engage folk in chat about the Comm, its activities and its future. We constantly come up against a belief that the Comm is run by the Council and paid for out of the rates, which is not the case, so we will be stressing that the venue is run by volunteers and survives on the income from hirings and the bar - plus small grants from the town and county councils.
We will be asking for support in a variety of ways, including completion of a short questionnaire. But we are also desperate for volunteers with practical skills to help with repair and renovation jobs as well as anyone who would like to join us on the Management Committee.
This support is particularly vital now because major repair work on the roof is needed and Powys CC will undertake these repairs only if the local community shows support for the Centre.
We hope to see you at the Comm then this Saturday but if you can't make it the questionnaire is available belowto download, print off and complete. And there's a cash prize if your questionnaire is pulled out of the hat!
