The Parish Hall Grand re Opening!

In time-old, Yarpole style we will be having a tea party and plant/garden sale to celebrate the re-opening of the Parish Hall on:

Saturday 26th, June 2 till 4pm.

Everyone is invited to come along and see all the improvements that have taken place over the last 12 months: the new garden, windows and redecoration. We will have a plant and garden stall and information about the Community Hub and other community groups in Yarpole.

There is now a defibrillator installed at the entrance to the Parish Hall. This was funded by West Midlands Ambulance service, a grant from the Community Shop, and the Parish Hall.
We await official training but please be aware that it can be used now, the device will talk to you and guide you through the process.

BUT PLEASE do not switch it on unnecessarily, the battery life is 30 minutes and the battery is not rechargeable, also if you open the door of the box an alarm will go off.

The Building and Access.

From the tarmac car park and up a very gently sloping ramp towards the double doors, access to the building – as well as single-level flooring through wide doorways - has been designed to take account of any mobility difficulties.

Inside, the building is airy, warm and well-lit. It consists of an entrance lobby, a main hall, a separate room for meetings, a good kitchen and comprehensive toilet facilities:

The Main Hall – with its curtained stage and curtained windows – is a pleasant space for performances, talks and large meetings. A serving-hatch opens from the adjacent kitchen onto the hall.  Seating can be provided for up to 120 people, or the hall can be laid out with tables and chairs. Alternatively the polished floor provides a good, clear surface for exercise classes and dancing. There are also exercise mats available to groups.

       The separate meeting-room is equipped with tables and chairs for 15 or more.

·        In the kitchen, the following equipment is available: full-size cooker, hot water urn and kettles, refrigerator, microwave, dishwasher and a range of tableware.

·       The toilet facilities include access for wheelchair users, and there is a baby-changing area.
