Since 1954, changes in economic and social conditions have meant that the Hall has become, in effect, the village hall for Cottingham and it is now used for a variety of purposes for all age groups.

 

It is managed by a Committee of Trustees, all of whom are volunteers.

INFORMATION ABOUT OUR HIRERS

CANINE PARTNERS

 

is a registered charity that assists people with physical disabilities to enjoy a greater independence and quality of life through the provision of specially trained dogs. Over the past 27 years the charity has provided more than 680 trained dogs to help disabled people.

 

More than 1.2 million people in the UK use a wheelchair, and a significant number of those would benefit from a canine partner. The dogs are trained to help with everyday tasks such as opening and shutting doors, unloading the washing machine, picking up dropped items, pressing buttons and switches and getting help in an emergency. The charity aims to train dogs to meet the needs of people with even the most complex disabilities, including members of HM Armed Forces. Canine Partners is working closely with the Forces charity Help for Heroes, which has funded several partnerships of injured ex-servicemen and women.

 

These life transforming dogs also provide psychological and social benefits including increased independence, confidence and self-esteem. A canine partner also brings companionship, a sense of security and increases social interaction.

 

Here at the Darby & Joan hall we hold monthly classes for the training of our puppies, under the tuition of our local trainer Jemma, these puppies will become Canine Partners of the future assisting people with physical disabilities.

 

Canine Partners receives no government funding and relies solely on public donations. For further information please visit caninepartners.org.uk  or contact Natalie Smith.

Community Builders

There are people in the Cottingham community who suffer from loneliness, depression and other forms of mental health issues or long term medical conditions.  These people may be looking for someone to talk to or something to do.

 

As a result the East Riding of Yorkshire Council in connection with the NHS, Mind Charity, and Smile Foundation have decided to publish a booklet showing all the social and leisure activities taking place in Cottingham, displaying when and where they are held and who to contact.   It will be freely available in doctor’s surgeries and the library and it will be re-issued every six months so that it is up to date.

 

Anybody in the locality will be free to apply or seek further information from any of the groups in the booklet.

 

The first step is to identify the groups which already exist, where they meet and who to contact.  In our case the groups concerned will be those using the Darby and Joan Hall.

 

We think it is a worthwhile cause and you could say it is free advertising for your group.   There may be financial benefits too for the groups who decide to take part.

 

So, if you would like to be involved and be included in the booklet, or you would like more information, please contact our Booking Secretary, Les Fisher, (telephone number 01482 343609) and he will be able to put you in touch with your local co-ordinator to find out how Community Builders can help you.

INFORMATION AND NEWS FROM THE TRUSTEES

NEWSLETTER – FEBRUARY 2019

 

Bookings 2019

Thank you very much for getting your bookings to me in time for the new year.  Some groups who book speakers in advance have already started to send me requests for bookings in 2020.  If you are booking a speaker please check on the availability of the room first.  Any early bookings you wish to make will be gladly received.

New Trustees

Would you like to help to manage the Darby and Joan Hall? The Trustees are inviting anyone who belongs to one of the voluntary groups which hire our Hall and which are not already represented on the Committee of Trustees to come and join us to help us to keep on providing this important village facility. We are all volunteers and we meet as a Committee every two months to plan how to keep improving the facilities we offer to anyone who hires the Hall. If you would like more information, then please give our Chairman, Bob Minors, a ring on 01482 842270 and he will be delighted to talk to you.

Parking

Trustees have received a few complaints during the last couple of months about indiscriminate car parking on our premises causing difficulties for other users. The space for car parking is very limited.  The Trustees have no wish to be authoritative about parking and would much rather prefer users to be considerate to everyone else and not block the entrances or exits.  To try and overcome the problem the Committee would like to make the following suggestions:

a. When parking in the area in front of the Main Hall – use the Finkle Street entrance to enter and exit.

b. When parking in the area at the rear of the Small Hall – use the Whiting Close entrance to enter and exit.

c. When parking in the driveway down the side of the Hall – use the Whiting Close entrance to enter and exit via the Finkle Street entrance. Park vehicles along the fence border, but not on the gravelled area. This will also leave the entrance doors to the kitchen and Small Hall freely available.

Any feedback is welcome on this subject.

Extended Bookings

It has been noted for a while now that some groups regularly arrive very early or finish well after their allotted time.  Again, the Committee has no wish to be prescriptive about this, but it has to be pointed out that the extra time being used is potential booking time and members of the groups concerned should not think that it is theirs by right should another group book the hall either before or after the event.

Usually half an hour is left between bookings, enough time to set up and pack away. When this is not the case you should be contacted or contact Les.  A sensible compromise is always possible.  Peter should also be aware of what is happening.

May we please ask groups to be aware that they are exceeding their allocated booking time.  At the moment there is no intention to confront anyone.  We simply request that you are sensible over this matter.

 

Best wishes

 

Les
