Mitchel Troy Village Hall is the place for you!

This website will tell you all about the Hall, what happens here and how to book it.

Mitchel Troy Village Hall fund-raiser

Rotary Monmouth Virtual Halloween Balloon Race

Rotary Monmouth is offering all non profit organisations in the area the opportunity to raise money for their needs by selling balloons in this “virtual” Balloon race. Mitchel Troy Village Hall is one of the participating organisations, so if you would like to have some fun and join in this very socially distanced fund-raising, do please buy a balloon or several balloons!

The race will start at midday on Saturday, 31st October and be completed at midday on Saturday, 7th November. Balloons can be purchased from the Rotary Monmouth Website here. Each balloon costs £3 purchased through PayPal. You can also purchase as a “guest”, if not registered with a PayPal account, using a bank card.  

Rotary Monmouth is providing the prize money. £175 first prize, £75 second prize and £25 third prize for the balloons that travel the furthest distance. In addition, there will be a daily prize of £10 for the leading balloon each day of the race.

On the Rotary Monmouth Balloon Race page, click on the red ‘Buy here’ and then click on ‘Get a Balloon!’.

In the Message area, circled in red, please enter the name “Mitchel Troy Village Hall” so that Rotary Monmouth know to send the funds raised by Hall supporters to the Hall.

If you are buying multiple balloons then you need to fill in this page as many times as the balloons you are buying, by clicking first on Create My Balloon and then clicking on the green button. You insert the same details except for a different balloon nickname each time. Then pay for the balloons on PayPal. (NB Buyers get an email from the race page thanking them for buying a balloon, even if the PayPal purchase has not been completed. If you did not complete the PayPal purchase then your balloon will not be entered in the race.)

Good luck & enjoy the race!

Mary Watts, the Secretary to the Village Hall Committee has the following updates:

As at 21 September 2020: “Regretfully, the Village Hall Committee has had to postpone the planned reopening, following the “rule of six” and the latest government announcement. On a positive note, the hall is now fully Covid-Secure and we will be able to open at short notice to welcome you back. That will be a day worth celebrating!”

As at 29 July 2020: “The Village Hall Committee has been busy behind the scenes, meeting via Zoom and holding a virtual AGM this week; many thanks to those who attended. We are always looking for new members for the Committee and this would certainly be a very interesting time to join us and to get involved in the community. You are guaranteed a warm welcome!  No experience is needed and everyone has something to offer so please think about it and get in touch with me on mary137watts@hotmail.com if you’d like to find out more. 

 As you can imagine, the main topic of discussion these days is the future of the Hall, which currently remains closed. The Committee has formed a working party which is developing systems to make the Hall Covid-secure so that we are ready to open when it is appropriate and safe to do so. We have been in touch with all our regular users to find out what their thoughts are and we’re monitoring announcements from the Welsh Government as legislation changes.

We’ll keep you informed and look forward, one day, to announcing the re-opening of the Hall and the return of the Pop-up pub and Coffi Troddi, as well as the return of the various clubs who use the hall.”

Watch this space!

Defibrillator News

clip_image002One of the factors to come out of the defibrillator training is the need for urgency in getting hold of the defibrillator.  Since many of you are more than a 3 minute drive from the Hall, we have a small network of people living close to the Hall that you could call – after first phoning 999 of course – to bring the defibrillator to you and the patient.  So, those vital numbers are:

  • Libby & Ivor Philpott          713809
  • Elaine & David Savage      715618

If you were not able to come to one of the training sessions but would still like some training, then please contact

  • Elaine Savage on 715618
  • David Llewellyn on 869117

and we will arrange a further session with Des if there is sufficient interest.  Talk to your friends and neighbours and tell them how useful this simple training session is and how it might save a life!

 

Do have a look at our Events page for news about future coffee mornings at Coffi Troddi – every third Saturday of the month 10:30 to 12 noon -and details of pub openings – every first Saturday of the month 19:00 – 22:30 as well as future events.
