The original village hall was built in 1919, but by the turn of the 21st
century was deemed not fit for purpose. In 2001 the local parish council set up
a new trust to take on the ownership of the hall, but also to explore options for
redevelopment, as potential sites for a new community centre were identified.
A grant and a loan came from the Parish Council was given to purchase the land and the balance came from Charity Funds.
In order to develop a new community building on the site, the trust applied to
the Big Lottery Fund’s Reaching Communities programme.
Working closely with funding specialists the trust was able to secure a grant of
£500,000 with which to develop a new community centre.
The centre was opened in 2018 and provides a large hall and community space, with smaller meeting rooms and catering facilities. The centre now hosts a range of events, classes and social gatherings.
