The hall continues to be used as a venue for a wide variety of village clubs, local events and some private functions. We have continued to subsidise the cost of hiring the hall for local people and clubs, by generating income from our own events such as concerts, well dressing teas, attic sales and, of course, the annual pantomime.

The safety of volunteers and the users has been underpinned further with updated management processes and rigorous testing regimes. We have also been working on the building infrastructure – for example, this year we have refurbished the main hall floor, extended the coverage of our smoke alarm system, installed new fire doors to reduce the risk of fire spreading, improved the performance of our heating system, and started the introduction of energy-efficient LED lighting in high usage areas.

We are a registered charity and rely solely on the income generated from bookings, fund raising events or donations.

We currently offer the hall out in half-day or whole evening sessions. This works for some, but many only require a shorter hire period. So from April, like the vast majority of village halls across the county, we are moving to hourly pricing. This will give people choice – for example, if you want to hire the main hall for your party – no problem, but you will have to pay for all the time you use. However, if you prefer, you can now do all the preparation off-site and just hire the hall for a much shorter time. So, a local person can have a children’s party for 3 hours in the main hall for £24 (less than half you would pay at similar sized halls in the area).
