Emergency Aid - Ted Norfolk has prepared and circulated within the village a provisional plan which gives useful information and advice. See also the item under 'Winter Resilience'.

CHARGES FOR THE USE OF THE HALL AND HIRE OF EQUIPMENT Hire of the hall: £6 per hour - this to include equipment in the hall. To take out equipment, the following charges will apply: Tables - £10. Chairs - £10. Kitchen Crockery/equipment - £10. Any items damaged must be replaced by the hirer. Charity and church events in the hall are free of charge.

Winter resilience: The Council had provided our winter resilience equipment.

We have a full yellow road salt bin outside the hall. We also have 3 shovels, 3 fluorescent tabards and 3 sets of gloves.Ted has put one shovel outside with the bin and the other 2 and the tabards and gloves inside the hall porch on the left hand side. There is also a board on the wall in the porch where the equipment hangs; the remaining hooks can be used for extra coat storage. Training is being provided for the Madag volunteers.



Monreith was lit up when, on 3rd December, the interior of the hall was decorated with Christmas lights and a tree, then, on 4th December, the outside of the building was given its festive make-over. The 'roadside' tree was erected and decorated on the same day and, as usual, looks splendid. In addition to these 'traditional' lights at the north of the village, this year we will have a laser projection on the side of Clarksburn Cottage at the south end.
