Village Hall

The village hall is located at the west end of the village on the corner of the cross road with the church. As it is so close St Mary’s Church, it is an ideal place to have a gathering after a christening, wedding or funeral. The loos can be hired separately for events at the church.

Originally the village school, the Grade II listed building was transferred into village ownership to be managed as a charity in 1985. Please click here for the history page with more information about the history of the village school.

The village hall is fully licensed and is an ideal meeting place for the village and offers a venue for our pop-up pub, film nights, quiz nights, social gatherings, family events, summer fetes and Christmas celebrations.

The hall and grounds are managed by a committee of trustees who are also responsible for fundraising and events. Please see the News section on the home page for details of regular and special events.
