Fundraising and Volunteering


The village hall is a registered charity with trustees, managed by a committee. As such, we do not receive any government or local authority funding, and need to raise funds for capital projects and other activities that extend beyond our normal operations.

The following items are things that are most pressing targets for our fundraising activities:

  • Improved windows in the Peter Griffits Hall
  • A new roof for the hall

Clearly, some of these items are very expensive, and we will be applying for various grants, especially for the new roof, but every donation helps, and we are very grateful for all support we have received to date.


We are currently fundraising £115,000 to replace our roof
