"The Rector, the Rev. R.K. Denham, called a meeting for Monday 13th December 1926 to discuss the question of a village hall as the school room was getting too cramped for all the winter activities. A committee was formed in 1927 to raise the funds and draw up plans. By December 1933 only £189 had been raised and the project was abandoned. A new committee was formed and the money previously collected was released by the Charity Commissioners when they showed good faith by raising a further £50.
Frenzied fund-raising took place and loans obtained and finally the hall was built and opened on July 25th 1936. There has since followed a series of improvements including lighting, central heating and a modern kitchen. The brick extension, which opened in 1977, houses indoor toilets and the Sports & Social Club bar. The hall is in constant use by the village societies, and is vital to our community. What stories it could tell!"
