Broadhembury Memorial Hall

Broadhembury Memorial Hall

The trustees of the hall and the many parishioners who enjoy our wonderful facility are indebted to Sue Middleton for her tireless voluntary efforts in supporting the management of the hall.  Sue has carried out much of the administration, including acting as treasurer, caretaker and bookings clerk, and assisted with obtaining lottery funding and organising fund-raising events over many years.  

Sue recently announced her intention to step down as a trustee and in turn therefore relinquish her voluntary responsibilities.  We are so grateful for all the support Sue has given us and believe this ‘retirement’ is richly deserved.  

Wanted:  Bookings Clerk / Caretaker

With the new hall now well established and in ever increasing demand, the trustees feel it is no longer reasonable to expect the operation of the hall to be entirely conducted on a voluntary basis.  Whilst the trustees will continue to give their time in managing the hall for free, we believe that the time has come to consider some paid assistance with some of the day to day requirements of running the hall.  We have therefore decided to explore the recruitment of a Bookings Clerk, with the possible combining of this with a Caretaking position.

This role / these roles would ideally suit somebody very local (in the village or parish) – perhaps a couple who could share the responsibilities.  

We are drafting a job description that will be available to any interested applicants but in short the role is to; take enquiries and bookings, maintain bookings calendar, collect deposits and payments, explain rules and regulations to hirers, manage keys and access, maintain the hall in good order for use and liaise with trustees.  

Interested?  We would be delighted to hear from you – just drop the trustees a line at either jim.gillham@hotmail.co.uk or drop a letter into the Post Office addressed to the BMH Trustees.  If you would like to discuss the role first, please feel free to telephone Jim Gillham on 01404 841034.

Closing date 15th December 2017.
