Summer Newsletter 2017

Dear Members

I hope this finds you well and enjoying the Summer.
The last few months have been an exciting time for the Soper Hall. The success of our marketing and promotional strategy has resulted in high levels of bookings from both ad hoc and regular hirers. Indeed, classes on offer now at the Soper Hall include Zumba, fencing, Slimming World, Starsteppers dance, Yoga (three classes), aerobics (three classes), maths, guitar, adult education and more.   Our increased range of community events, from our popular Makers Markets to the Comedy and Soul Nights, has meant that we are accumulating funds to spend on much needed improvements to the Hall.
You may be aware that the CAB moved from the Soper Hall at the beginning of the year to purpose built offices at the Library. This change meant that we could knock through the warren of offices in the ex-CAB wing to transform the space into a wonderful new Hall which we have named the Garland Hall.
We have also redecorated the lobby adjacent to the hall and this is now a bright, clean inviting area.
In addition to this, we have made essential repairs to the roof and installed new double-glazed windows to the rear of the building.
To celebrate this success, we are having an official opening ceremony of the new Garland Hall on Friday 8th September to coincide with our AGM.  Our Company Secretary will be sending out the official documentation closer to the time, but meanwhile please do put the date in your diaries.
I look forward to seeing you in September and showing you our beautiful new improvements.

Beverley Connolly
Chairman, SHCCL
On behalf of our fabulous Board and wonderful volunteers.
