Our very newly formed Community Choir is looking for new members. Meeting weekly on a Friday evening at the JGI at 7pm – 8.30pm. Love to sing but cannot read music? Always wanted to join a choir but not thought you would be good enough? No problem, come and give us a try. Whether you have sung in choirs or not sung except in the bath since school, if you enjoy music, having fun in a social atmosphere you will be made welcome.
We are a choir made up from members of our community and once we are ready, for the community. All ages from Teens to Nanas and Grandads. Open to anyone living or working in Belton or just over the borders. Also if you live in a neighbouring village but are regularly part of our community activities.

We celebrated in September 2015 our 10 years of service to Belton and the surrounding area. A celebration evening with entertainment was held and a packed hall had a great time.

The Hall was renovated in 2005 with full central heating and first class kitchen facilities. As well as the main hall there is a small rear room, known as the Green Room that is ideal for small meetings and events.
The Hall has full disable facilities to meet all needs.
The Hall is licensed for a maximum of 80 people and has chairs to seat 70. It is fully licensed for music.
There is a full size pull down projector screen if required.
The Hall is ideal for parties, receptions and other family gatherings.
Although parking is limited by the hall, cars can be parked at the Tavern Pub 60 metres away.

The Trustees are pleased to announce that we now have a fully automated defibrillator at the hall if a collapse from a cardiac arrest or other illness did happen. The unit is fully automated and would guide by voice any user to carry out the correct procedure.

A GREAT CHARITY TEA PARTY

A Charity Tea Party was held at the JGI on July 30th 2015 to raise funds for the East Coast Hospice.

A great afternoon was had by all with thanks given by Councillor Adrian Myers. Babara thanked all who attended especially the catering ladies. Over £500 was raised.
