A big thank you to everyone who came along to the Open day Coffee morning on the 25th January and for the positive comments received about the recent improvements to the Snooker Room. They were much appreciated.

A quiet weekend at the Hall this week but a reminder that on Saturday 8th February the Pantomime section will be selling tickets again at the Coffee morning  for their productions later on in the month, February 20th  – 22nd.


Almost 2020.

We all hope that everyone had a good Christmas and would like to wish everyone a very Happy New Year.

It is a fairly quiet period at the Village Hall, which comes as some what of a relief. We have recently undertaken quite a major refurbishment of the Snooker rooms, creating a self contained club and an additional meeting room. The work has not been without its hiccups but I think we are on the home straight.

We shall be celebrating the new look club with an Open day Coffee morning on Saturday 25th January. The whole premises will be available to look around and representatives of various user groups, clubs and class leaders will be in attendance to give more information on their respective group. Tickets will also be available for the 2020 Pantomime, Dick Whittington and his cat.

Bacon sandwiches, hot buttered  teacakes and lots of homemade cakes available from 9.30.a.m. until Noon.

Almost Christmas!
