Hiring the Millers Dale Hall

The community association has just received the following notification from Jane Dyke of Yellow Dot.

‘Just to let you know that we are having a few changes at the Millers Dale Hall.

We are moving the bookings to our Group office in Otterbourne in order to be more efficihallent, as the Kindergarten is only open 8am – 4pm, 39 weeks of the year.

The Group office is manned 8-6pm, 51 weeks of the year. Recently party users have complained that they can’t get to us by 4pm to collect keys etc.

Please can I ask you to change the number on any advertising that the Community has – 02380260394.

We will also be increasing the Hall fees to £9 an hour from January 2016 in line with other facilities in the area. (Unchanged since 2008)’

???? Quiz ????

a quizOn Saturday night 14th November a group of residents and a few visitors had a great evening pitting their general knowledge against the fiendish inquizitor Phil Heller. A good mix of young and old meant that only a few of the questions went unanswered despite a lot of head scratching. This time Phil tried out a variation on his usual style of music section. Despite his prediction there were one or two teams that came up with very strong scores. At the end of the evening two teams had drawn so a tie breaker had to be employed to sort out the eventual winners.   

AGM Report

For those of you unable to get to the NMDCA AGM on Tuesday 30th June the warm evening started with a refreshing glass of Pimms. Chairman Richard Mollon reviewed the work of the NMDCA over the last year. He welcomed two new additions to the committee who will join us at our regular meetings to discuss issues and plan forthcoming events.

Some of the residents raised the problems encountered by users of the Hall. They were finding the extra Nursery equipment was making alternative uses more and more difficult. If other people have also experienced issues with either the booking or use of the Hall please let us know so we can raise it with Yellow Dot.

Future events were discussed including a themed 70s-80s night with live entertainment and an ever popular quiz later in the year.

Head scratching quiz night

Test your brainsThe North Millers Dale community hall hosted a successful quiz night on Saturday 18th Feb with Phil Heller posing the questions. Thirty local residents made up eight teams to have their knowledge tested. Rounds ranged from Music to News to General Knowledge and even a round with twenty questions about Eastleigh! Surprisingly, there were many interesting things to learn about somewhere right on our doorstep. All the teams did well and the scores at the end were quite close, even though one team didn’t realise that one of the question papers was double sided! Well done to the ‘quizy rascals’ team who won the top prize.
