NORHAM VILLAGE HALL TRUST
The management of the Hall is undertaken by a small committee of volunteers and their responsibility is to ensure that space is suitably appointed and the facilities adequately and appropriately maintained so that all activities can be enjoyed safely and without concern. The Hall has a Performing Rights Licence. It was built on the site of the village smithy and has been developed and used as a hall by all comers since 1897. Within the main hall is space for holding exhibitions, the presentation of lectures and a stage fit for dramatic productions. There is a separate smaller room for meetings; a kitchen and toilet facilities including one for those with disabilities. Upstairs, there is a snooker room with a small storage cupboard and the potential for a corner to be used for administration.
Numerous activities take place in the hall during each week – from table tennis to craft club, Scottish country dancing to school fairs - and we are always delighted for new groups to apply to use the hall. A current list of users/user groups is available.
The hiring of the hall is managed through the Mason’s Arms Public House where the booking forms and charge rates can be accessed.
Each user or group is responsible for leaving the hall clean and tidy and we have a cleaner who carries out routine cleaning tasks each week.
‘A place for us all to share and come together as a thriving and vibrant community’.
We are always keen to welcome and encourage private parties to the hall – for birthday celebrations, wedding receptions or ceilidhs and similar celebratory events.
There are plans for further developments and improvements to the hall and the facilities it offers which it is hoped will be achieved over the next 5 years.
If you would like to be involved in any way, have ideas or wishes for how the hall could further support the village and the wider community, please contact Janet Young – 01289 382736: firstname.lastname@example.org.
