Rallying call ignored

Hopes of getting greater community involvement at Edinbane Hall were dashed at its AGM with only five local people turning up and three of those were current members standing down.

Under a “Your Village needs you” rallying call organisers had hoped to attract new blood and put the hall once more right at the heart of the locality.

A spokesperson said: “We really need more people to come and join our hall committee in order for it to continue to run as successfully as it has been in the past."

Now an emergency general meeting is planned for Monday 6th March in the hope that more people can be enticed to go along and get involved.
