Membership of the Community Association
GOOD NEWS !
If you live in Thorpe Audlin or the surrounding area, you are automatically a member of our Community Association.There's no need to apply.
It's totally free to be a member. There are no joining fees or membership subscriptions. The only times that you will be asked to pay is when you take part in the various activities organised by the Association for your enjoyment. We need to cover our costs so there is usually a small charge for these activities or perhaps a raffle or other fund raising activity.
The Association is centred on our village hall otherwise know as "The Ramsden Hall" on Darning Lane. We rent this hall from the Church at an annual rental of £1000 and as our lease is a "fully maintaining" one we also have to pay for all maintenance work and the costs of Insurance, gas, electricity etc. Our annual expenditure is therefore several thousand pounds. This money is raised via various fund raising events and your support is vital if we are to maintain this facility for the village.We also receive money from time to time from other sources such as grants, use of the hall for elections and Parish Council meetings etc.
You can rent the Ramsden Hall for your own functions at a cost of £7.00 per hour. The Hall is centrally heated with kitchen facilities and we have a music licence.
