Village Hall Community Survey 2019
The Welburn Village Hall Committee is carrying out a survey of views to find out how members of the local community feel about this important village asset. The survey is now closed; many thanks to the large number of people who responded. The results have now been analysed and the village hall committee is considering what actions to take in the light of these results.
The issue receiving the most attention was the availability of car parking. The committee is looking into the feasibility of increasing the number of parking spaces. More information to follow in due course.
Another issue commonly mentioned was the darkness of the road leading down from the village hall to the Main Street at night. If you feel that more lighting is needed in this area please contact the Parish Council as this comes under their jurisdiction.
Other issues raised in the survey are also being considered.
Evening exercise classes
In the recent questionnaire survey about the village hall, some people asked about having yoga or pilates classes in the evening. There are already a lot of bookings in the evenings which need to be taken account of but early evening slots are available starting at around 5.45-6pm on Monday for yoga and 5.15-5.30 for pilates on a Tuesday. We have talked to teachers who are interested in holding classes at these times, but we need to guage the level of interest before going forward. If you are interested, please reply to this post or email email@example.com

Welcome to the Welburn Village Hall Website.
Our village hall is host to a wide range of Welburn and Crambeck community groups and events.
This superb venue is also the ideal place to hold your next social or business event and ensure that it’s a great success whether you live in our Parish or elsewhere.
It is conveniently located in the pretty village of Welburn which is just a mile off the A64 between York and Malton and close to Castle Howard in the Howardian Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
Newly built with a timber frame construction in 2007, this modern building incorporates many renewable technologies.
The Main Hall has a total capacity of 110 people for private functions such as wedding receptions or family parties. The smaller Dot Smith Room can comfortably seat up to 20 people theatre style or 14 around the meeting table. There is also a modern, well equipped kitchen. All areas have been designed with disabled access in mind.
The hall is located in Church Lane, Welburn, North Yorkshire, YO60 7EG. We are a registered charity (no. 1181994) and the hall is run by volunteers from Welburn and Crambeck who manage the facility for the use of residents, local communities and friends of Welburn.
Your village hall needs you
Please become involved in the running of the village hall. New trustees are wanted and welcomed bringing new skills and energy to the present team. We are also planning to set up sub committees for specialist areas which would not require the full commitment of being a charity trustee. If you would like more information on becoming a charity trustee please contact Liz Laming 01653 618527, or feel that you would like to contribute to the running of the Village Hall by coming on to one of our committees please let Yvonne Myers know 01653 618610.
