Founded in1954 as a charity, the Hall was built to act as a "social centre for the social, moral and physical well-being of elderly people residing in Cottingham and for such other charitable purposes as from time to time be agreed upon". Since 1954, changes in economic and social conditions have meant that the Hall has become, in effect, the village hall for Cottingham and it is now used for a variety of purposes for all age groups.

 

It is managed by a Committee of Trustees, all of whom are volunteers.

The Hall is a member of the Community Building Network.

Hire Costs are reviewed annually.

Please contact Booking Secretary for details.

INFORMATION ABOUT OUR HIRERS

 

 

CANINE PARTNERS

 

is a registered charity that assists people with physical disabilities to enjoy a greater independence and quality of life through the provision of specially trained dogs. Over the past 27 years the charity has provided more than 680 trained dogs to help disabled people.

 

More than 1.2 million people in the UK use a wheelchair, and a significant number of those would benefit from a canine partner. The dogs are trained to help with everyday tasks such as opening and shutting doors, unloading the washing machine, picking up dropped items, pressing buttons and switches and getting help in an emergency. The charity aims to train dogs to meet the needs of people with even the most complex disabilities, including members of HM Armed Forces. Canine Partners is working closely with the Forces charity Help for Heroes, which has funded several partnerships of injured ex-servicemen and women.

 

These life transforming dogs also provide psychological and social benefits including increased independence, confidence and self-esteem. A canine partner also brings companionship, a sense of security and increases social interaction.

 

Here at the Darby & Joan hall we hold monthly classes for the training of our puppies, under the tuition of our local trainer Jemma, these puppies will become Canine Partners of the future assisting people with physical disabilities.

 

Canine Partners receives no government funding and relies solely on public donations. For further information please visit caninepartners.org.uk  or phone 08456 580 480.

INFORMATION AND NEWS FROM THE TRUSTEES

NEWSLETTER – APRIL 2018

 

Kitchen Renovation

Since the start of the year the Committee has had the kitchen almost completely refurbished, so that it meets current food hygiene standards.  Since the work was completed the kitchen has been inspected and was given the top grade.  The room still needs decorating and the Trustees are considering having this carried out in August.  We hope you enjoy the new facilities.

 

Data Protection

 

New rules come into force on 25th May.  There is nothing fresh in these which should affect the Darby and Joan Hall management.  The data I have consists of the names, addresses, phone numbers and, where there is one, the emails of all principal users of the building.  These are usually the leader of the group, plus the treasurer and other committee members.  Lists are on display on our notice boards and website giving the name and telephone number of the person to contact for each group.  If you are not happy with this arrangement and want your details removing or changing please contact me.

 

Mail

 

We often receive mail at the Darby & Joan Hall, addressed to users, which remains uncollected.  Peter does his best to pass this on when the relevant group is in, but this is not always possible.  As correspondence can so easily go missing when left may I ask you not to have mail sent to the Hall, but to a member of your group. If you wish to check whether there is still anything for you all letters are placed in the blue tray in the kitchen, on your right as you enter through the outside door.

 

Notices

 

Some of the notices on the boards are looking a little tired and torn.  If this applies to your group may I please ask you to put up a replacement.  Notices last longer and look better if they are laminated.  If you have not got a laminator please contact me and I will do it for you at no extra charge.

 

Best wishes

 

 

Les
