A Message from the Chair of the Hall Committee

Just under 40 people came to the Abbotts Ann War Memorial Hall (AAWMH) AGM on 10 January 2023. It was a great event – thank you to everyone who came along and thanks to those people who brought such delicious snacks along for the reception after the meeting.

We heard about the Hall’s finances and the incredible results of the fundraising appeal to improve the fabric of the building.
Thank you to all the people and organisations who contributed so generously. We raised slightly over £20k, and now have a new roof and lots of other things have been repaired. The grant from the Abbotts Ann Fete Committee was used to pay for new windows at the back of the building.

Local girl Georgie Amelia Wheldon played acoustic guitar and sang for us during the reception after the AGM. She was amazing and it added hugely to the atmosphere.

We’ll keep you posted on the musical and other events that we’re planning over 2024 so watch this space. We’ll also let you know when this year’s nominations are open for the Hibbert and Liddle Cups for outstanding contribution to the village.

Best wishes

Judith Cole — Chair Abbotts Ann War Memorial Hall Committee
