A little bit about the Village Hall
Heapey and Wheelton Village Hall is situated at the top of Meadow Street in the heart of Wheelton Village and was formerly Wheelton Council School. It was bought in the early 1980’s to provide a community facility for the residents of both Heapey and Wheelton and now aims to provide a focal point for social activities in our two communities.
Book the Village Hall here. Wheelton Nursery is also a resident of the Village Hall.
Can you Help?
The Village Hall is run by a group of volunteers but we need more assistance - URGENTLY!!!
Brains, brawn, we’ll take anything!!! There currently is a small group of people who keep the Village Hall open and running and we are looking for more help. If you would like to join us all you need is a little spare time, enthusiasm, community spirit and an enjoyment of village life!
SECRETARY TO THE VILLAGE HALL
The Village Hall Committee urgently need someone to take up the role of secretary. Of all the individual 'positions' on the committee this is the most important! You would organise and take minutes of meetings, deal with correspondence and be the main contact point for the hall and committee. It really is a role that someone with a bit of spare time (and preferably a computer!) can get their teeth stuck into, so don't delay, volunteer today!
Are you interested in buildings and DIY? If so could you help here? It would be great to have someone on the committee who is interested in being the contact point for any maintenance and building matters & ensuring that jobs get done. If you are the handy type yourself then you could undertake some smaller jobs too - for which of course you would receive payment!!
For those interested in becoming a Trustee, the Committee meets on the second Wednesday of every month (excluding August and December) for a couple of hours. The agenda normally consists of topics like maintenance, special projects, events and ideas for the marketing of the Hall’s facilities.
Alternatively, if you are interested in
offering a little bit of help but don't want to join the village hall
committee you could help in other ways, such as delivering leaflets, help
at fundraising events, grant applications, events organising or publicity,
the list is endless!
Events at the Village Hall
A number of annual events are organised by the Village Hall Events Team, details of which can be found in the What’s On pages
Rooms for Hire!
