Public Halls Report

To receive the report of the Venue & Events Officer.


The Committee received and considered the report of the Venue & Events Officer.


The report concerned hall usage numbers, the newly installed screen and projector at the Corn Exchange, an update on the 1863 café and the success of the Anniversary Open Day.


Members discussed the introduction of a loyalty drink scheme which they were supportive of and the café furniture following a request for some items to be replaced.
