Volunteer Hall Manager

Sompting Village Hall

Register your Interest

Our Village Hall on West Road Sompting provides facilities for group meetings and local events for the residents of Lancing & Sompting.  We are hoping to recruit a Volunteer Manager who is able to assist by giving us a few hours of his or her time each week by updating our records.  Reservations for use of the hall are made on the Hallmaster booking system and the Manager is required to check the reservations, obtain an invoice number from our Google system, issue invoices and reconcile payments received against the monthly Bank statement. (The Chairperson checks the monthly Bank statement.) The Manager will also prepare annual accounts and liaise throughout with the Chairperson and cleaner, and hand over and collect keys from casual hirers. (Regular hirers have their own keys.)


The role requires a person with computer literacy (a laptop is provided) and an ability to do basic bookkeeping.  As the hall is a registered charity, the Manager will also become a Trustee.  The Trustees have recently arranged for a new website to be set up and this shortly be running shortly.  


The Manager will be reimbursed for phone calls, paper and cartridges for the computer usage.

The role is vital for the maintenance of a local village asset and the existing Manager, who wishes to retire from the role, is willing to give assistance in handing over the role.  If the applicant requires any additional training, this can be given by the Hallmaster suppliers.

Practical Considerations

The Village hall has its own car park but provided the Volunteer lives in Sompting or nearby, and is prepared to have casual hirers call to his or her property to collect and return keys, there is no need to go to the hall.

When do I need to be available?

Details The Volunteer would need to check the reservations for the hall on a daily basis but could carry out the remainder of the tasks to suit his or herself.
