On Saturday the Soper Hall celebrated our first Wedding Ceremony since being awarded our License in March. It was a beautiful afternoon, the sun shone and the building looked wonderful with the new grass, hanging baskets and flower filled pots. This was the first of which we hope will be many happy wedding ceremonies and the culmination of an ambition the Board has had for the hall ever since we became responsible for our glorious heritage building in August of 2014.
We have also recently signed up three more regular hirers. The hall is now busy every day of the week. From June we will be hosting a toddler group and trampoline aerobic classes on Mondays; Fencing and Yoga on Tuesdays; Guitar Club and Zumba on Wednesdays; Slimming World, Yoga, Pilates, and Starsteppers childrens’ dance classes on Thursdays and more Fencing on Fridays. This is in addition to the regular art clubs, church, self-help and local interest groups and the Parish Council, together with regular parties, AGM meetings and other events. Our monthly comedy nights are proving extremely popular too and we are looking to put on regular quiz nights and open mic/jazz evenings.
We are looking at funding to improve the wing of the building occupied by the CAB and to install badly needed additional disabled facilities. We are progressing towards having all our tenants on fixed term leases to guarantee further financial stability.
The Soper Hall is now absolutely fulfilling its destiny as THE community building for Caterham and the surrounding area. We could not have done this without the hard work and dedication of our wonderful Board and our volunteers. Thank you also for your support as Members.
