and ready to start repairs.
The VHMC have therefore been undertaking researches to get the next stages of work underway.
We have decided to have a new tap installed in the disabled toilet along with new, double-skinned
plastic pipe in the toilet area and uprated insulation throughout.
We are also investing in a SureStop Water Switch which will allow the water supply to the Hall to be
switched off at the flick of a switch after each hiring.
We hope that these measures will substantially protect the building from future periods of
sustained, cold weather. This work will have been done by the time you are reading this article!
We have had two companies visit to provide quotes for the work to replace the floor and redecorate the
building. These will be passed by our Loss Assessor to the insurance company's Loss Adjustor and we
hope we will hear shortly which has been accepted and when work will start.
Whilst it is frustrating to have to wait for quotes, decisions to be made, people to be available and so
on, please be assured that we are doing our best to keep pressure on all parties involved to keep things
moving on this project.
At the moment, it is impossible to give a likely time for completion of the work but we hope that by the
time of the Village Meeting in May, we will know more.
Once again, our genuine thanks for the help, support and interest of so many people in the Village.
On behalf of the VHMC.
