Proceeds in aid of the Parish Church and Village Hall
The hall was built over 40 years ago on land conveyed to the village by Captain Nugent Hope, the then owner of
Whitney Court. A plaque in the foyer commemorates the gift and the construction in 1964.
The hall is managed by a committee of trustees made up from user-group representatives and members of the local community. The committee meets every two months to discuss and organise community events and the day-to-day management of the hall. It also looks after maintenance and improvements so that fundraising is an important part of its work. There is a current grant application for new chairs and small tables.
Use of the hall
During the week the Whitney Crocodiles Pre-school group uses the hall on a daily basis. It is used regularly in the evenings by local groups such as Keep Fit, Indoor Bowls and the Women's Institute. It is also used for community events such as Harvest Festival Suppers, talks and slide shows and fund raising events such as the Flower Festival and Fetes.
The hall has a capacity for 100 persons and has been recently refurbished to bring it up to modem standards, with excellent kitchen facilities, cloakroom and toilets, with a washroom and proper access for the disabled. It has been redecorated and presents an inviting opportunity for anyone to hire it for parties, weddings or any other special event.
