Bursary Scheme

The Village Hall Committee wishes to support village residents to use the hall for clubs, charitable and other activities where the current hire charges are a barrier to usage. As such the committee has created a bursary to support some or all of the hire charges where appropriate. It is anticipated that this would normally be used to support hire of the meeting room, otherwise charged out at its normal rate (normally £6 per hour)

The bursary would be open to the following:
– Clubs or activities where at least one of the organisers is a village resident
– Current hire charges are a barrier to usage of the village hall
– The club or activity is not currently in the position to source funding for the hire charges from their members. This could include the club being in a start-up phase and/or a low number of members who are not able to contribute.
Established clubs that charge subs would not normally be considered.
– It is expected that usage of the meeting room would fit the needs of the club or activity. Usage of the main hall would only be considered under exceptional circumstances.
If support is provided then this would initially be over a 3 month basis, subject to review for continuation or otherwise after this time. Clubs accepting support should aspire to meet the usual hire charges over time, however continued support would certainly be considered where this is not possible.
Application and approval process
The completed application should be given to a member of the village hall
committee. This will then be reviewed and normally subject to a vote at the next committee meeting, after which a decision will be communicated back.
