Village News & Information

Why we should use our Village Hall

Our Village Hall offers a medium-sized main hall, meeting room, kitchen, bar room and car parking. It is ideal for meetings, classes, functions, children’s parties and much more. Present use includes a toddler group, bingo sessions, some dance classes, meetings, weddings and parties.

Now much warmer

Over the past two years our Village Hall has undergone many improvements, the most significant (and expensive) of which is a new heating system.  This, together with roof and cavity wall insulation means that it now provides a warm and pleasant meeting place.

Redecoration

Our entrance hall and toilets have benefitted from new floor covering and redecoration.

Now safer

We have had many health and safety checks and improvements including electricity and asbestos.

Now more environmentally friendly

Our insulation and new heating mean we are using electricity more efficiently and the soon to be installed LED lighting will continue these efficiencies.

Ongoing improvements

Our future plans include installing LED lighting, redecorating the main hall and meeting room and replacing the curtains, raising funding for a new kitchen and installing wifi.

Good value.

To hire our Village Hall costs just £10 per hour or £9 if you are a local hirer or regular user. It is less if you only require the meeting room.
