The hall was established in 1920 to commemorate victory in First World War and is based on an old First World War building. It comprises an entrance hallway with ladies and gents toilets and a disabled toilet, a main hall with stage, a second room with children’s toilets, a committee room and a kitchen.
The main hall has capacity for 200 people and is often full for village events. During the week it is used by the adjacent village school for assemblies, P.E., drama and lunches. Evenings and at weekends it is used for recreational activities such as yoga, short-mat bowls, dances and receptions. The stage is used by the school, Young Farmers and the village drama group.
The second room is known as the billiard room. Its main use is shared between the under 5’s (pre-school and mother and toddler group) and the over 60’s. There is also occasional use for band practice and for meetings.
The committee room is situated between the main hall and the kitchen with direct access from the main entrance. It is used as a convenient annex to the main hall or as an independent meeting room for parish council, mothers union and other meetings.
