The Village Hall was given in trust to the village by the grandparents of two of the long-standing village families in 1926. The building was originally just a hall and porch, heated by a fat bellied tortoise stove with a guard all around to stop anyone running into it. It served as the village school until the early 1950s and we still have two residents who were schooled here.
At a date unknown, a kitchen and toilets were added. Then in the 1980s a new kitchen and toilet facilities were added and the heating system was updated to electric; work which was very much done by volunteers as there was very little money in the kitty. In those days the Village Hall was kept alive by weekly Bingo sessions run by Mavis and Ray King, who are now sadly both deceased.
Then in the 1990s, Reg Jackson lined and decorated the main hall after the wood work had been stripped and sanded down. It is thanks to the hard work of these people, and many more, that we still have a functioning Village Hall.
The Village Hall is established as a registered charity – number 274021.
