Garve Village Hall

Idea: Public Meeting about Garve Village Hall

Post in Ideas by Jan Gamble Grigor
Time to Vote! Would the community welcome a public meeting to discuss how Garve Village Hall could be improved, get people's views on the subject?

I would like to put forward my idea to have a meeting at the hall for everyone to come along and vote for the hall to be renovated/refurbished.  We need your vote.

I think an actual community discussion in person about what to do with the hall is the next logical step, so I am voting yes to this idea.

Between everyone I've spoken to so far there's been a wide range of opinion on whether to refurbish the existing hall or look at developing purpose-built solution that meets the whole community's needs.

Personally I'm for a purpose-built hall incorporating:

  • at least two multi-use rooms (for classes/meetings/events etc.)
  • cafe/bar/restaurant (open to public as well as catering for events)
  • community garden in the grounds
  • plenty of car parking (including spaces for buses)
  • potentially a "Men's Shed" attached

I would agree with Blair. The question to me implies a ‘lick of paint’. It could be a great opportunity to address so much more if planned thoroughly. As Blairs’ examples illustrate.  So I’m with Blair, and would vote ‘yes’ on that basis.

Exciting times for Garve

I think it is a good idea to have a meeting to hear what the Community would like from a new or refurbished hall, and hopefully some of the Garve Hall Trustees could attend, to let the Community hear of their vision of the hall in the future.

No ifs and buts --- let's have a Ladies Shed! We've been thinking of an Arts & Crafts shed but lets have a Ladie's Shed too on the list of Community Needs

Definitely a good idea to have a meeting to debate the  ideas put forward with  regard to the village hall . Perhaps personal invitations to nearby residents should be considered?  Also circular arrangement of chairs at  meetings has encouraged a fair exchange of  views in the past -  just a reminder ! 

Have your say...
