Our village hall has been in its current location since 1983. The building was formerly the village school built in 1874. The hall is available for hire, offering a pleasant, spacious environment for parties, meetings and functions. The hall has a maximum capacity of 60 people.
The hall has a separate kitchen/meeting area which may be hired separately. Hire of the hall includes the use of tables and chairs, the recently refitted kitchen and equipment (if not booked separately) and the cost of heating and lighting. The kitchen was refitted in 2019 with funding from the National Lottery Community Fund. Toilets include disabled facilities and for nappy changing. We regret that village hall tables and chairs are not available for hire off the premises. The hall does not have an alcohol licence.
Access: The village hall can be found on Main Street (What3Words: ///weeknight.something.perused) with its entrance down the passageway to the left of the building. Parking is limited on Main Street so we advise all users to use our car park which lies to the rear of the building, accessed via Back Lane. Entrance to car park (What3Words: ///clear.defrost.flying
All hirers of the Village Hall are requested to read and comply with our guidelines.

The hall is booked for some regular group meetings/events (e.g. Yoga on Wednesday evenings) and so will not usually be available, but please just ask.
N.B. To avoid disappointment, please wait until you have signed the hire agreement form and the booking is confirmed before publicising/promoting your event.
AUGUST 2020: Some additional user guidelines were drawn up in light of the measures introduced to keep the hall Covid-19 secure. These guidelines apply to all users of the Village Hall and are in addition to existing user guidelines and form part of the hiring agreement which you sign when the booking is confirmed. While restrictions are further relaxed or no longer required, much is common sense and still useful to continue to bear in mind.
