ABOUT US

Running and funding our hall

The hall was built in 1931 and has been hosting village events and activities for nearly 90 years. 

We have an enthusiastic management committee, who have recently delivered improved hall facilities, and are working on more. We welcome new clubs and events and want the hall to continue to be at the heart of the community.  

Regular events and activities include visits from the mobile library, the Rag Tag Toddler Group and Art classes, with monthly meetings of the Parish Council, Snitterfield Garden Club; Women’s Institute (WI), Snitterfield Actioning Climate Change (SACC); Community Cafe and Rural cinema.


In addition, the hall runs fundraising events throughout the year led by the Village Hall Committee to raise much needed funds towards the upkeep and improvements to the hall. 

 

HALL IMPROVEMENT AND DEVELOPMENT

Burns_Night 44.jpg

We are delighted, that we have now completed half of the necessary refurbishments and improvements to the village hall. Please see our news article for extra detail. 


Plans were drawn up and approved in  2015, with overwhelming support received during the public consultation. 


Since then we have needed to make changes to help reduce the costs which are currently estimated to be in the region of £300,000.


The new plans still provide the same elements and are being delivered on a project by project basis.  

  • Refurbish the existing toilets

  • Build new accessible toilet facilities, to be accessed from the main hall and meeting room. 

  • Refurbish the store rooms. 

  • Raise the carpark level to give direct access into the main hall for wheelchairs and pushchairs through the front door.

  • Redecorate the main hall.

The above listed improvements have all been completed. Please see photos.

  • Build a larger meeting room at the rear of the hall with direct access from the side of the building. This will include a servery area and access to the new toilet.

RUNNING OUR HALL

Snitterfield Village Hall Management Commitee 

Snitterfield Village Hall is in the heart of the community and the day to day running of the hall is under the care of the management committee.  This is a volunteer committee who maintain the fabric of the building on behalf of the Parish Council through the hiring of facilities and fundraising.


The aim of the committee is to create a welcoming community centre for all members of the village and other users of the facilities.


We are a small band of volunteers and would welcome anyone who would like to join us either on the committee or to help with specific events.
