Hall Improvements

The Hall committee invested in a dishwasher which was recently installed and has been most welcome to the groups who have made use of it.

Lighting has been added to the hall which gives it a delightfully soft look, ideal for social events. The lights change colour, and if you are standing outside the hall the effect is visible too.

Our third recent investment has been in new tables. The tables we had were of different sizes and heights, so were difficult to link together into a long table. The new tables are much better as individual tables, as well as providing the verstility of tables which can run the length of the hall.

The stage has always been Arctic - (these Victorians must have been hardy!). The cold seeps up from the storage space under it. The Hall committee have decided to put those on the stage out of their misery, and have carpeted it in hard wearing material matching the curtains. A whole new look to the stage indeed.

Planning is now in hand for Hall events in the future which will be put on this website as they are decided on! Watch this space so that you can plan ahead.

New lights in Hall - set up for ceilidh

Relaunch of Innellan Village Hall Saturday October 2, 2021

So many people have moved into our village recently that we invited the community to come to the relaunch of the Hall into its place in Innellan society. All the groups who use the hall were there and were able to explain what they do. It will give everyone an opportunity to see all the things which go on in our village.

There was also an archive exhibition. The books about our village were on sale. The historical walks started again.

And if none of that was enough to tempt you what about the teas, coffees and home baking?

Our much overdue Hall AGM took place in Innellan Village Hall Saturday October 9, 2021

The Innellan Village Hall AGM took place one week after the re-launch. Again all the groups who use the Hall were invited to attend, along with everyone interested in the Hall continuing at the heart of the community. All welcome with suggestions for the future. What new ideas have people come up with during the months of isolation? What new activities can happen in the Hall?

Come and be part of the running of Innellan Village Hall.
