The Village Hall
Yes it is for hire, but is it suitable?
You may need to know where it is,
its capacity, perhaps whether it has a bar, who provides tables and chairs, catering facilites, the fees and so on.
These and many more questions are answered here.
Events take place in the Meeting Room and Main Hall. The Meeting Room is for
smaller gatherings of about 20 people but may be used as an anti-room for
Although the Main Hall has regular events such as WI meetings and childrens
play group, there is still great scope for random events like...
- Wedding Receptions
- Anniversary Parties
- Theatre Productions
- Birthday Parties
- Dinner Dances
- Meetings / Conferences
...but the Hall is a popular venue so you need to book well in advance.
The pictures (click on them to enlarge) indicate how some users have been able to tailor the hall for their particular event. A marquee lining can be provided for special lighting effects.
160 square metres provide for a maximum of 150 people. Actual dimensions are 19.8 x 8 meters with headroom of 4.6 meters. The meeting room is 5.4 x 3.1 meters with a large oval table easily removed if required.
Outside there is a disabled parking area with wheelchair friendly access paths.
In fact we have an excellent venue and want you to have a good time but not
at the expense of the hall and our neighbours and for this reason bookings
are not done on line.
Some not so obvious facilities included free:
- Internet access
- a microphone system
- an installed background CD music player
- a headphone jack socket to plug in any MP3 device or laptop computer
We can provide tables and chairs for up to 150 people.
Kitchen and Catering
The kitchen boasts (forgive the pun) a double wide gas oven and a six ring hob,
plus large, hot food and hot plate cabinets, an urn and place settings for
about eighty people. Of course you have to leave it as you found it.

There is a bar area but users will have to arrange their own Temporary licence. These are not difficult to obtain and you can do it yourself. Details provided on our written agreement.
No alcohol is kept on the premises for security reasons however the bar is
what you want it to be, within legal constraints of course. The bar must
close and music stop by midnight.
The area outside can accomodate thirty cars leaving room to maneouvre.
It is advisable to have someone organise the parking as visitors arrive.
Use of the main road is to be avoided - please advise your guests in the
invitation. It is narrow, and an obstruction or inconsiderate parking will annoy locals and may attract police intervention.
