Having worked tirelessly for the benefit of the village for many years, Joan and Ricky Gibbs and Caroline Jones will be retiring from the Rimpton Village Hall Committee at the Annual General Meeting on 1 May 2019. We are all very grateful for everything they have done and wish them well for the future.
As a consequence, the key roles of Chairman, Bookings Secretary and Treasurer will become vacant. If anyone is willing to give up a little of their time to fill any of these roles, or to join the Committee to lend a hand generally, it would be very much appreciated.
If you can spare some time to join the Committee and help organise things, please contact Gail Brady on 01963 220471 or Dale McLoughlin on 01935 851100.
