The WI Hall

The Hall is owned by the WI and we are looking to ensure it is well used as a venue for village events.

It is available for hire (£11 per hour) for children’s parties, functions, concerts, events etc.  It has excellent acoustics and can accommodate around 100 people (depending on the type of function).  It also has good kitchen and cloakroom facilities with disabled access and toilet.  Bookings can be made by ringing 01663 746000.

For initial enquiries please contact Joan on 01663 746000.
