Our Community Centre provides a fantastic venue at the heart of our village for us all to use, whether to hire the committee room, or book the hall or the Great Meadow for a special event or activity. Come along for tea, cake and a chat at the Centre Café on a Thursday afternoon, visit the Library, or attend a Parish Council meeting. A large parking area and toilet and changing room facilities are available. We also provide free WiFi. A wheelchair is available for hirers use, whilst in the centre. Please make use of our bottle, shoe and clothing recycling banks located in the Community Centre car park.
For general enquiries or to hire the hall or committee room, please see the Centre hire page.
The hall is approximately 160m², and can hold up to 160 people. Facilities include tables and chairs, a large stage, cinema screen, built in overhead projector, lighting and sound systems.
The kitchen / committee room
Our refurbished kitchen has modern stainless steel units, and facilities include an oven, large griddle plate, hot water dispenser, fridge, freezer, dishwasher and large sink unit. The committee room (within the kitchen area) is also available to hire as a meeting room.
