The Market Weighton Community Hall.

A community organisation is appealing for new members to help keep a vital service running smoothly.

The Market Weighton Community Hall committee is looking to recruit new, active members to assist in the management of the facilities, to organise fundraising events, and to take the hall forward into the future.

The community hall, on Station Road, has been run by a dedicated management committee since it was opened in 1992.

It provides a well-used venue for local pre-school and play groups, dance and therapeutic groups, training courses, religious service, civic occasions and musical events as well as being available for hire for private parties and similar functions.

A spokesman for the committee said: “If you feel you could contribute to the management of this important venue please contact the chairman, Councillor Stephen King, on 01430 872707 for further details.

“We will be very pleased to hear from you.

“The hall is available to community groups in the Market Weighton area.

“Anyone interested in making use of the excellent facilities should contact our booking clerk on 01430 803368.”
