THE team behind a main feature of Alveston’s village life is looking for a new volunteer to fill an important role.

Jane King, the booking secretary at the Jubilee Hall, is stepping down and someone is needed to take on the task.

The hall was a gift to Alveston from local benefactor Edward Bush 120 years ago to celebrate Queen Victoria’s diamond jubilee.

It has been a successful venue for many groups and events ever since, run by dedicated volunteers.

Jane has been the booking clerk for four years - taking on the job after retiring in order to help the community and stay active - but is now moving on.

She said: “I have enjoyed helping out. The hall has a strong group of volunteer committee members, who all do their bit and work well together.

“My role involves liaising with the groups that regularly use the hall and managing the ad-hoc bookings, from businesses to private functions, christening celebrations to wakes and more.

“Most of the work can be done from home using basic computer skills, but it also includes showing around people who may wish to book either the main hall or meeting room.

“We hope to find a replacement soon as I will be unable to help at the hall after the end of June due to other commitments.”

Anyone interested should either contact Jane on 07895 066494 or chairman Mike Casey on 01454 414448 or 07767 884491.
