Future of village hall in jeopardy unless new trustees come forward

A shortage of trustees at a village hall is placing a “huge burden” on existing volunteers – a parish councillor has warned.
Councillor Robert Bullen said recent resignations from the board of trustees of Little Thetford Village Hall had left the village in “urgent need” of replacements to prevent an uncertain future for the facility.
“The present trustees are very aware that several of their number have indicated that they will be unable to serve for much longer,” said Cllr Bullen, in a newsletter to villagers.
“The current chair in particular will not serve after the 2016 annual meeting and consequently unless the board of trustees is strengthened now the future of the village hall is in jeopardy and that will have a disastrous knock-on effect on living in Little Thetford as we know it.”
Cllr Bullen said the board was looking in particular for a new treasurer and said that guidance would be provided to help anyone interested in the role.

He added: “The shortage of trustees is putting a huge burden on those currently in post. Due to the recent resignation of the treasurer to the trustees we urgently need a new trustee to take on the role of treasurer. This need not be a particularly demanding task.”
