Your Village Hall

The Village Hall, which is situated at the bottom of Hannah's Lane, was officially opened on Wednesday, 10th December 1913 at 2:30 in the afternoon by Mrs. Graves-Knyfton of Uphill Manor. A contemporary newspaper article, originally published on Friday 12th December 1913, describes the opening ceremony in detail.

The 'New Hall', as it was known was originally owned by a group of worthy villagers who had contributed to its cost.  However, during the 1970's the trusteeship was given over to the Village Hall Committee.
