Website

The website has been completely overhauled and we now have what we consider to be a very friendly and easy to use system.  Many of you used the previous website to promote your groups and activities.  All this information has been transferred.  If you wish to make full use of the site and provide information about yourselves please send any relevant details to me.  Our website address is www. darbyandjoan.org.uk.

New Screen & Overhead Projector

We are pleased to report that we now have an automatic screen and overhead projector in the Large Hall, both of which are available , free of charge, to all users of the hall.  Should you wish to use this equipment for your own groups or the use of a visiting speaker please advise me well in advance via the newly designed booking form and then I can supply you with the operating instructions and inform you how to locate the remote controls.  However, I must point out to you that this equipment is expensive, so any loss of the controls or damage to the screen or projector will be charged to you in full.

Booking Secretary Mail Box

Please note that the box has now been moved and positioned on the wall to the left of the door as you enter the Large Hall.

Best wishes
