Activities at the Hall

Chilworth Hall has always been managed by a committee of volunteers. Since the current team set out to turn around its fortunes the overall utilisation of the Hall has increased by 127%. Some of this is down to the updating of the facilities on offer. There’s also been overspill from Chilworth Manor, where The Club seems to have been going in the opposite direction in recent years. These days Chilworth Hall offers a lot more opportunities for socialising and recreation. Most of the Yoga or Pilates groups have provided information for this webpage. Several others may not have been aware of the offer of free publicity. Imminent changes to the page will ensure that it includes the contact details of all the many other clubs and societies that use the Hall, including a Rock Choir, Tango or Ballroom or Folk dancing groups, an Art Group, an Alpine Gardening Society, a Canal Society, the Inner Wheel and Dog/Puppy Training.  There’s now also a thriving branch of the Women’s Institute as well as the rural cinema with monthly Moviola showings.

Free Money

Well, that’s got your attention, and it’s no trick. Amazon is genuinely donating some of its mammoth profits directly to charity, and it’s letting people like us decide where the money goes. As of this month, over £1.6M has been disbursed already.

Every page at amazon.co.uk has an almost identical counterpart at smile.amazon.co.uk. So, quite simply, whenever you want to buy something from Amazon you should buy from Smile.Amazon instead because whenever you do, a percentage of your payment will go straight to the charity of your choice. That’s it… there’s nothing more to it. No trick – just money for your chosen charity without even having to ask.

You can help Chilworth Hall by always starting your shopping with this link: https://smile.amazon.co.uk/ch/301782-0

Of course, you may feel that there are more deserving charities than Chilworth Hall. Fair enough.  Just go to Smile.Amazon and make your nomination but, one way or another, but why miss the opportunity to do someone some good with your shopping?
