CALLING ALL THE BORED RETIRED PEOPLE OF CORRINGHAM
Most people in Corringham & Stanford are not aware that the Corringham Hall is run by charity volunteers. Nine years ago the Corringham Hall was on the verge of closing its doors for good as the council were unable to fund the ongoing costs of repairs and maintenance. In an effort to keep the hall alive, three of our team took on the role as trustees and signed a 20 year lease, thus becoming self supporting and without any physical or financial help from the council. For the last nine years the hall has had to survive on the local community hiring the halls for private - public - corporate - social or club events.
As our committee are all fuuly employed with their "day jobs" it is becoming harder to keep on top of maintaining the building and surrounding grounds, so we are asking for the help of any retired people who need a challenge, to take part in one of our projects " Best Community Hall Gardens in BLOOM 2020"
To help us, all we need is your time and effort. You will form a gardening team to design a spectacular garden in full bloom for the spring and summer. Once your design has been approved by the committee we will provide the money for plants etc and you will have the responsibility of making the Corringham Hall Grounds the pride of Corringham.
So if you are able to give the hall some of your free time and you have a passion for gardening please help support your local community hall and call Roger on 07891 057965 to arrange a meeting and answer any questions you may have.
Please note that your time will be given FREE as this is not a paid position.
