Free WiFi at the hall

Thanks to the links we have established with venues4hire we now have free wifi available throughout the hall. This means that hall hirers can access the internet for free.

The wifi is controlled by the use of a password which is regularly changed and issued to hirers.

We hope that this will increase the usage of the hall and encourage more clubs and individuals to consider booking the venue for a function or even a business meeting.

Committee member

Closing date: 9 January 2015

We need more volunteers to sit on the hall committee. The role doesn't require any specialist knowledge just a willingness to attend committee meetings, add to our discussions, have an opinion and help drive the hall forward.

We need enthusiasm and someone who will turn up. The hall needs to raise its income levels to where we are self sustaining and continuing to serve the local community.

The hall is a an early Elizabethan building dating from 1646 that until 1873 housed the village school, attended by children from a wide surrounding area. 

When the school closed there was nowhere for the WI and other groups to meet.  The Mission Hall on the Green had been destroyed by fire in 1951 forcing the football group to use the Black Swan pub, as the owners were hoping to sell the Green for housing. 

The School had been gifted by the Gregors to the current owners, but once it ceased to be a school, it reverted to the donors or their successors.  The community was keen to retain the building and Parish Councillor R.B Pillock pursued the case with great diligence and when eventually contacted, the successors agreed to sell the School at half its market value.  The Parish Council bought it for £6,500 in 1967 and refurbished the near derelict hall at a cost in excess of £42,000. 

In 1984 Splot was proud to open its first Village Hall.  in 1987 the sons and daughters of Paul Robeson gifted the land behind the Hall to the Parish Council.

In 2002 a request was made to the Parish Council proposing that half the land behind the hall be sold and the hall car park be extended with the proceeds.  The Parish Council agreed to this and the land  was eventually exchanged for £18,300 and 0.7 acre of land behind the Green, where a community orchard has been established.  The hall’s car park was duly extended and the original car park tarmacked.
 
Please look at the wonderful picture of our hall and take note of the many quite wonderful open plan features.

The hall benefits greatly from having a web presence via venues4hire.org. Not only has this meant that we have a means of communicating with our local residents and but can now be found by anyone searching for a venue in the area.

Our membership of the venues4hire forum has led to a number of cost saving exercises. The forum makes sure that the committee and its members know that there is a support organisation out there where they can discuss problems and learn form other venues, big and small the best way to tackle any difficulty.

We would encourage any venue, committee or manager to consider becoming a member of the venues4hire forum. It is county based so issues are local and important to us all.
