Holly Tree - July 2021Feedback from our recent survey has been very valuable to us. Thank you to all who responded both via the Survey Monkey and returning the hard copies of the questionnaire to us. It was clear that people felt we didn't advertise/market the Holly Tree sufficiently for people to know what goes on there, both in terms of what the club does for its members and what we hire out the hall for to the community. So our first venture into raising our profile, is to publish on Facebook the monthly item that we send to the Deddington News. We will get better at promoting ourselves and what the hall is used for over time, so bare with us please. Meanwhile, here is the July copy.... Sadly, Boris Johnson didn’t relax the Covid restrictions on the 21st of June as hoped, so our re-opening will be delayed accordingly. At the time of writing, we’ve no idea when it will be possible to open the hall, but please rest assured, our members and regular hirers will be the first to hear, either via these pages or direct contact from the trustees. So ‘watch this space’!Huge apologies for all who were inconvenienced by the temporary traffic lights on The Horse Fair earlier in June, while Southern Gas Network put the gas across the road to the Club. They took many days longer than expected and to add more angst to their completely lacklustre performance, they accidentally ‘grazed’ the driveway wall at the club thus demolishing that on the last day of works too! What an encore to an already poor show.Meanwhile, we continue with the snag list of odd jobs, not least of all getting the garden in some sort of shape again, rehanging curtains, cleaning and so forth.We have been spending quite some time analysing the responses given to the survey recently, both in terms of any changes that we can reasonably implement immediately, to making a list of things that we will take forward into phase two and beyond.One thing that was very apparent from the responses, was that our members would like coffee mornings to be held weekly, which is something we can organise as soon as we are able to return. Those who still want to come monthly, can come as they always have, and those who would prefer to come fortnightly, can attend on the two weekly rota that suits them. Regarding the improvements and facilities that you would like to see at the hall, it appears that as a ‘You Said, We Did’ exercise, we have delivered everything you asked for in phase one that it was reasonably possible to do! We are unable to deliver some items until phase two, when we rebuild the kitchen and cloakroom, but we have installed heating and hot water to both in the meantime anyway, to make them both more comfortable to use. There is much more work to do on the responses in the coming months, we have only just touched the surface, but we’re very grateful to have received so much great feedback, and some criticisms too, that we’ll take forward and work on equally as hard. Meanwhile, I’d like to wish you all a lovely summer break and look forward to bringing you news of our reopening as soon as we possibly can.Holly Tree Management CommitteeStill a work in progress and some odd-jobs left to do.....but its gives you a idea of where we're heading! ...
