Treasurer needed to run hall finances

A TREASURER is needed by the management committee of Sonning Common village hall.

A TREASURER is needed by the management committee of Sonning Common village hall.

The voluntary role involves about six hours of work each month and responsibility for handling money for the maintenance of the hall.

Geoff Ward, who used to be treasurer, left in October after five years in the post.

Committee chairwoman Sue Frayling-Cork said: “It has been a difficult process trying to find someone else but the job is crucial.

“The committee is very productive and works hard but we need the guidance and support of a treasurer.

“The hall is very busy and we have a lot going on so we need someone to keep us in order and the finances up to date.”

The committee meets every other month for about an hour and a half.

Activities that take place in the hall include dance and ballet classes, bowls, Women’s Institute meetings, lunch clubs and choir practices.

Meanwhile, Oxfordshire County Council has provided a £4,950 grant to buy 120 new chairs for the hall.

Mrs Frayling-Cork said: “They are going to be semi-upholstered so they are much more comfortable. Most of the current chairs are about 20 years old and are uncomfortable.”

The 90 chairs currently used in the hall will be available for residents to take home in the spring once the replacements have been delivered.

Mrs Frayling-Cork thanked the ward’s county councillor Carol Viney for securing the funding.

Anyone interested in applying to become treasurer or taking the old chairs should call committee member Margaret Moola on 01189 721248.
