Marchington Woodlands Village Hall
Situated in a tranquil rural setting, the Marchington Woodlands Village Hall was built in 1954 on land donated, by the beneficiaries of the Will of Mr William Martin. In the early years the hall was used extensively both by the Woodlands village school and by a number of very active organisations and societies. The village school is now closed; however, the hall remains a key asset for the village. The village hall and the church are the only remaining centres for communal activity in Marchington Woodlands.
The hall is managed by a committee appointed by the local community and designated local organisations. The hall is reliant on grants, lettings income and income from village functions to finance its upkeep and any improvements.
Following a recent survey of local residents the management committee are seeking funding for a programme of work which would modernise the building, improve energy efficiency and eliminate the flat roofs at the rear of the building which have required frequent attention over the years.
The hall is fully accessible to disabled persons with all rooms on the ground floor. The available space comprises a large main room, a small stage, a separate kitchen area and toilets. Adjacent to the hall is a 1/2 acre field which is used for a variety of outdoor activities and functions. The hall enjoys beautiful views across the adjacent countryside which is a favourite area for ramblers and cyclists.
The hall is available for hire for public and private functions and is licensed for dances for up to 120 people and for seated meals for up to 90 people. Further details and prices are available on in the Facilties and Charges document.
