Hall car parking

Chilworth Hall’s management committee is keen to see if there is any way to improve the safety of the entrance/exit arrangement to the Hall’s car park. The car park and the driveway leading to it are part of the freehold of the Hall, and so the trustees on the committee are very much aware that they have a responsibility to try to limit the dangers that are becoming ever more apparent as traffic densities on the A27 continue to increase..  Several recent conversations about that have revealed there to be some misunderstandings and incorrect assumptions about the car park itself.  Continue reading

SBB at the Hall

Many thanks to all those who turned out to support live music at the Hall on Saturday evening. Everyone seemed to have a great time listening to the Salisbury Big Band’s repertoire of hits from the Glenn Miller era. The excellent 17-piece band was supported by Ellen-Marie, a singer whose range stretched all the way from the Andrews Sisters to Eartha Kitt via Dame Vera Lynn.  Continue reading

Auction Closed

Many thanks to all those who entered into the spirit of this event, you helped us to raise almost £1500 for the Hall’s refurbishment which is obviously a very welcome boost to the fund.  Commiserations to those whose bids were pipped at the post: we hope you’re not too disappointed.

The “latest bids” page has been updated.  We’ll allow daytime Sunday for checks and protests, and the final results will be announced at the Moviola on Sunday evening. Several winning bids are from anonymous bidders. Winners will receive confirmations by e-mail, along with a note about arrangements for payment and collection of bids.

Thanks again to all the bidders, and special thanks to those whose generous donations made the whole thing possible.

Bids for any of the lots may be made by e-mail until midnight on Saturday, 11th March. The winning bids will be announced at the Moviola on Sunday, 12th. Continue reading
