Hiring The Hall/ Rooms

We have a large hall for hire, along with a large outside area, some smaller rooms and a kitchen.  All of which are available to community groups and commercial functions at very reasonable rates. Hiring can be arranged either as an ongoing agreement or for one-off events. A wide range of community groups and clubs already meet at our hall and welcome new members to join them. The hall has undergone refurbishment in recent years to make it a more welcoming place. This has included safety fencing and a new play surface in the garden area, as well as new windows. Children’s birthday parties are welcome – however please note that we do not accommodate adult or teenage parties.
