History of the New Village Hall

The construction of a new village hall was conceived in 1989 and a committee was set up to achieve this aim. By the end of 1996 the committee hoped that they had sufficient funds and invited tenders. There was a shortfall between the amount raised and the lowest tender but the whole of this was made up by funding from 21st Century Halls. The selected contractor was therefore able to start in July 1997.

Full details of the funding and construction costs can be seen in a note prepared by the chairman (PDF format) of this committee from its creation in 1986 to the opening of the hall in February 1998.
