  • Briefly opened for a few occasions with Covid-secure measures in place in Summer 2020 and closed again in November 2020.
  • Opened the hall in May 2021 for Local and PCC elections.
  • Reopened, as restrictions gradually lifted – Life Art restarted in May and Yoga restarted in July.

BBQ Pictures

The recent BBQ was a great  evening enjoyed by lots of people as well as raising funds for the hall.

Vaughan, our Chairman would like to say a big thank you to all committee member for their hard work and commitment.  We are fortunate to have so many villagers who are able to help out setting up, on the evening, and clearing up on the Sunday morning.  The BBQ would not happen without them and we would like to pass on our thanks to everyone who helped.

Some pictures from the evening.
