Village Hall Notes – 2018

Village Hall Notes January 2018

The Village Hall Volunteer group put the finishing touched to the redecoration of the hall in time for the Christmas Party Season and received a lot of positive feedback from the people who attended the various Functions

Party Functions included: The Goil Ladies Night, The Pensioners Christmas Party, The Loch Goil Primary Christmas Show,  The Kids Christmas Party and the Village Hall Hogmanay Party. All in all, a busy wee month.

Upgrades to the hall

  • The fitting of Perspex cover which enables the stained Glass window to be displayed at all times.
  • The original doors have been repaired and waxed to reveal the beauty and character of the doors which are well over a hundred years old. A big vote of thanks due to David and Marion Reid and Stuart Gray for the refurbishment.
  • A very large disco ball and lights were fitted for the Hogmanay Bash and thanks go to Hammy McGuire, Andy McCunn and John Drew for their donations
  • There was a very large set of decorative lights donated by the couple who married in the hall and these were deployed in the Annexe to great effect

Coming event

The village Hall will host the first ever Lochgoilhead Village Hall Burns Night and Ceilidh on Saturday the 3rd Feb

There will be a full Burns Supper Menu served with traditional “ongoings” including a few Witty speeches and some Burns Poetry interspersed with music and traditional Dancing to “waggle yer Wallies” to and plenty opportunity to “Bounce oan yer Bunyins” with a bar and table service throughout the night
