Village halls in Devon
Ashreigney village hall.jpg
Ashreigney Village Hall
The recent Coronavirus Pandemic has really brought home how vital our Village Hall is to a small, rural community such as ours. It is literally the “heart” of the Village. Social gatherings, our market, and meetings may be banned; but our Hall continues to serve. In recent months it has been used as a central control room by emergency services carrying out search and rescue operations, it continues to act as our Post Office, and the Car Park now hosts regular street food Pop Ups. The Village Hall Newsletter hasn’t missed a single edition and The Renovation Committee continue to work with Architects to plan for a new and exciting future. We look forward to the day when we can all meet up again, to celebrate and fully enjoy this vital and much loved part of Village Life.
Beaford Village Hall
Based in rural northern Devon we are the hub of a small parish of fewer than 500 people. We have a stunning view from our hall thanks to a local farmer who donated the land and local builders who constructed the building. We are a busy hall (normally) and we take great pride in our beautiful home. Our plans include making the hall as environmentally friendly as possible and creating a wildlife haven on our recently acquired field adjacent to the hall.

Berrynarbor Manor Hall
Our pretty grade 2 listed hall is in the center of our lovely village and a focal point for many community activities including art and craft clubs, Pilates ,wine circle,wedding, table tennis, parties, council meetings, snooker club, our village fete and much more . Sadly corona virus put paid to most of this fun last year. Thankfully our popular pre-school situated in one wing of the building was able to carry on providing a fantastic service and of course much needed income for the hall! We have optimistically booked a date in the diary in August for our village fete- fingers crossed! Good luck to all our fantastic halls around the country for 2021 - we all provide an amazing and precious service to our communities and a big thank you to ACRE for their help and support particularly in these most difficult times.
Bishops Nympton Parish hall
Our beautiful hall built in 2011, has been sadly quiet nearly a year. It is usually buzzing with luncheon groups, a dance club, short mat bowls, pilates, yoga and various clubs. It is a popular venue for weddings and parties, with a lovely view and plenty of parking. On site is also a Community Shop and Community Club. A real community hub.
Bishops Tawton Village Hall
Our village hall used to be the Village School. In life before Covid it was the centre of our community, hosting coffee mornings, jumbles, sales, the art group, meetings and numerous parties. We look forward to being able to return to that way of life.

Brentor Village Hall and Playing Field
Brentor Village Hall was established in 1952 in the original Brentor Men’s Reading Room and is managed by a small committee of local residents. The village hall is normally the hub of the community with themed suppers, a pop up café, coffee mornings and many private bookings each month, but since Lockdown started last year the hall has basically been closed. However we are very lucky to also manage the village playing field, where subject to the Covid-19 restrictions, we have still been able to hold events in an outdoor setting. The field is on the edge of the village of Brentor with no access to mains services. In the past 18 months we have obtained grants from West Devon, the National Lottery and the Postcode Lottery which have enabled us to install a shelter, a composting toilet, tables & chairs (made from durable recycled plastic) and enhance the car parking. This has meant that during the past year when restrictions allow we have been able to have many events on the field including a Christmas market, car boot sales and coffee mornings. A weekly takeaway van supporting the Hall funds operates every Friday at the field supplying the community with morning coffees, lunches and afternoon teas. We are so proud that the field has helped the community so much in these difficult times. Once restrictions are relaxed a bit we hope to hold a treasure hunt to raise the funds to complete the field renovation project by installing a play/trim trail
Broadhempston Village Hall and Headlands Playing Fields
Our carbon-neutral village hall was opened in December 2015, on land acquired for community use by the parish council near the centre of this very active community of 800 residents. A parish-wide survey assessed the needs of all age groups and this resulted in a building with a 9m x 16.5m main sports/function hall with sprung beech floor, a large meeting room and a smaller meeting room. The hall has exceeded its 3-year business plan and caters for all ages, with a regular baby and toddler group, indoor sports and fitness sessions for all ages including a thriving badminton club and short-mat bowls. It’s also a great venue for lunches, parties, music events, meetings and courses. The 84 PV panels on the roof and a high standard of insulation means that the building overall costs nothing to heat and light - a tremendous benefit and which keeps our hire charges low. The trust also runs the sports field which has become a valuable asset during the various Covid-19 lockdowns for open-air exercise. A skate ramp has recently been built and we are now actively working on the creation of a MUGA on the existing tennis court. The local primary school makes considerable use of all facilities. Our village also has a thriving community shop and two popular pubs.
Village Hall Broadwoodkelly.jpeg
Broadwoodkelly Village Hall
Broadwoodkelly is a tiny village in rural Devon. With only farms and a few houses in the immediate area, our hall is the centre of this small community’s life. The building started life as the village school in the 1870’s, closed its doors in 1945 and was purchased by the locals in 1963 in order to turn it into our community hall. Over the last 20 years, fundraising, grants and much sweat and toil by volunteers has transformed the stone structure into a warm and welcoming space, with all the facilities needed for its new role. Before lockdown, we had a full calendar of activities, all organised by those living in the village –markets selling locally produced food, sports days, barbecues, book club, exercise and art classes, coffee morning, weekly walks, trips to the seaside etc. Of course, at the moment, everything is on hold. However, our lifeline is our use of the internet, communicating via e-mail messages to a village-wide community group. Roll on the time when we can all get together again.

Burrington Parish Hall
Burrington Parish Hall in North Devon was established in 1930. It was burnt down in 1943 and was rebuilt in 1960 and has been continuously modernised since to include a full catering kitchen, solar panels and new heating system. We now have an extensive hall which plays host to various community activities and fundraisers, monthly over 65 lunches, fitness classes, meetings and much more. The hall is home to the Comrades Club which celebrated its Centenary last year and runs skittles, darts, snooker, billiards for the locals over the Winter months- there are currently 17 teams. This year is the first year since World War 2 that the Annual January dinner has not taken place. There is a floodlit Muga adjacent to the hall, we are really pleased that this has been very popular through the recent Winter months for local netball and football teams, providing some fun and fitness at such a difficult time. We look forward to continuing to be part of the community once more when the pandemic eases.

Cheriton Fitzpaine Parish Hall
The original timber built hall was constructed in 1935 on a site given by Rev. W H Arundell. It was extended in the 1960s and developed further and fully refurbished during 2012 - 2016 as a social project involving many people of the village. Pre Covid the Hall was well patronised by many people enjoying the variety of events on offer such as short mat bowls, aerobics, yoga, garden club, bingo; drama, dance and musical productions; film shows and dances. During the Pandemic the Hall has continued to serve the Community. During total lockdown the accommodated outreach Post Office has continued to function and in the tiered restricted times the Car Park has safely hosted mini markets and a take-away cafe. It has also acted as the 'nerve centre' for the 'Market on the Move' whereby individuals set up their own stalls outside their own houses. We eagerly look forward to a time where we can once again offer the Community a series of interesting events right in the heart of the village!
Clyst St Mary Village Hall
We run a large modern (built 1990) hall in a village close to Exeter. During the lockdown we have taken the opportunity to carry out maintenance and repair work, including full internal redecoration. We are looking forward to welcoming our users back when lockdown is eased. Finances are in reasonable shape, thanks to government support.
Exwick Parish Hall
Our hall is used by many different groups including, a Baptist Church, Messy Church, Friday Friendship, Dog Training, Ball room dancing, Fit Steps, Twirly Tots, Baby Yoga, Forest School, Bingo, Hindu temple,
Filleigh Village Hall
Our parish is in the heart of rural North Devon, with a scattered population of approx 250 people. There is no ‘village’ as such but the hall, school and church are within a few hundred yards of each other, most dwellings being further away Before Covid the hall was used by our primary school plus activities such as badminton, U3A and WI as well as being training centre for DCC and NHS. It is a popular wedding venue. Pandemic struck during the building of an extension, which was finished during the summer of 2020. When able to by the varying Tier Regulations we have held individual skittles, small suppers, and Chat & Coffee for 6, which worked well (with face masks etc) in the new room. Currently, we are generally on full Lockdown, although the blood donation sessions are exempt and continuing on schedule. Our school is not able to use the hall, but another organisation which looks after children that cannot be educated in mainstream schooling is, and their fees help cover necessary running costs. We look forward to wide open doors again

Huntshaw Parish Hall
With a new committee in place for the start of 2020, we were all systems go! Village Halls week set us off with a fantastic Open Day which was swiftly followed by a very well attended Skittles night. WE can’t wait to get started again in 2021 after our short stint before Covid. Really looking forward to getting our community back and more involved once again!
Ide Memorial Hall
Ide Memorial Hall is the main community hall for the village of Ide which is just outside Exeter. The Hall was built early in the 1900s and gifted to the community by the Church Commissioners after WW2. It has recently undergone a major refurbishment with community and grant funding. Under normal circumstances it is used for many different activities including communal social events, dance and fitness classes, village meetings, elections, children's parties, mother and toddler group, twinning events, educational classes, receptions etc. During lockdown when the Community Shop has been particularly busy the Hall has provided extra storage for stock. The photo shows a visiting group from our twinned village in Normandy. We look forward to continuing with all these activities as soon as possible. There are also plans for a village youth club.

Lee Memorial Hall
Lee, and the associated village of Lincombe, are located on the North Devon coast, a few miles to the East of Ilfracombe. Founded in 1923, our village hall was built as a memorial to those who served - and in many cases died - in the Great War. The hall is at the core of the community and in ‘normal’ times hosts a range of events from Spring Fair to Christmas Candle lit dinner, with flower shows, crafts workshops, playgroup, wedding receptions and myriad events in between. Lockdown has provided an opportunity to lay a new floor and replace the childrens’ play area, thus completing a range of refurbishements since 2010.

Lustleigh Village Hall
Lustleigh is a small village nestled in the picturesque Wrey Valley on Dartmoor and is home to a Village Hall whose history stretches back to 1911, when it was known as the Constitutional Hall, later becoming the Conservative Hall. It was taken over by the Parish Council in 1976 and was completely rebuilt and extended in 2005. The Hall is run by a dedicated group of trustees and volunteers, being the centre for many village activities and is unique in housing a rifle range thus providing a home to the Lustleigh (Home Guard 1944) Rifle Club. Covid-19 saw in an abrupt halt to most activities bar only the Pre-School which operated (when permitted) throughout, although we now see our calendar filling up for May 2021 onwards.
Lympstone Village Hall
Hard times in 2020, but our hirers can’t wait to get back. Some nearby halls have closed for good, so we’re expecting to welcome ‘refugees’

Malborough Village Hall
Our Hall was built in 1975 after many years of fundraising by the local community. Our village primary school use the Hall on a weekly basis for PE and dancing. We have 2 great theatrical groups involved with our Hall which each undertake 2 large productions each year, one being the local Pantomime and another a production for local youngsters. With many diverse groups using the Hall for exercise, fun, celebration and learning, the Hall is a very important part of the Parish of Malborough. It is the centre for the biennial Village Fete with alternate years holding the Village Scarecrow Trail. The building is situated on land owned by the Charity of Malborough Village Hall & Playing Fields Association with a Children’s Play Area, Football and Cricket Fields, Skateboard Park and Adult Gym Equipment. The Charity is run by a team of volunteers.

Newton St Cyres Parish Hall
Our Hall was opened in 1926 in a converted cider barn donated by the Quicke family, major landowners in the village. It has two meeting rooms and in normal years has around 600 bookings. During 2020 the Hall closed from 16 March and has only been re-opened for two short periods on a restricted basis. However, throughout this period a detached room in the Hall has continued to be used for on outreach Post Office service for two periods of two hours weekly and this has made an important contribution to our village community. The Hall much appreciates financial support provided by MidDevon District Council through the pandemic

Pinhoe Community Centre - America Hall & Sunnylands Room
Opened on 31st May 1952, America Hall, Pinhoe’s Community Centre, was built with funds donated by the families and friends of American Service persons who were stationed here during the Second World War. The residents of Pinhoe raised the money for the land. America Hall is situated in the village of Pinhoe, on the north eastern outskirts of Exeter, within easy reach from the M5 motorway
Poughill Village Hall
Poughill Village Hall is located in a small village in the heart of rural Devon. The Village Hall and the activities it supports are vital as they help to prevent social isolation and enhance the mental and physical wellbeing of the residents of our small remote village. The Hall was built around 1850 and is sadly showing its age and is need of some TLC. There is a growing list of expensive maintenance tasks for which we need to raise funds.
Princetown Community Centre
Our village community centre hosts our local GP surgery drop-in appointments, public library, early years preschool and, when fully open again, various local groups including the parish council, WI, yoga group, local church, history club, and cadets. We hire out the halls for family life events and local businesses, other charities and youth groups. We have spent the restrictions period tackling some much needed maintenance of the building having been supported by our local council and remain optimistic for the future.
Rockbeare Village Hall
Currently we are closed to all hirers and have been so for much of the past year. The village hall is a bright modern space and the lease also provides a large field which has been of great comfort and benefit to the community since March 2020. (NB photos taken before the pandemic)
Sampford Courtenay Village Hall
Sampford Courtenay Village Hall THE VILLAGE HALL IS ‘THE HEART OF THE COMMUNITY’ AND IT IS THE COMMUNITY THAT MAKE THE HALL GREAT AND BRING IT TO LIFE. Sampford Courtenay Village Hall was once the Village School. In 1952, Devon County Council decided to close the school owing to falling numbers on roll, and a group of local residents clubbed together to buy the building and place it in Trust “to provide recreational and mental development, entertainment or otherwise as may be found expedient for the benefit of the inhabitants of Sampford Courtenay and Honeychurch in the County of Devon and its immediate vicinity”. We rely on volunteers to run the events and do not have any paid staff or committee members Architecturally it is a fine example of a Victorian School House and the exterior is very little changed from when it was first erected. Over the years, care has been taken in maintenance to match brick work, painting, and replacement roof tiles, and where this has not been possible, materials used have remained sympathetic to the origin of the Hall. Internally, the building has been modernised and extended and the partition between the two original classrooms has been removed to allow for one large hall space, but the origins of the old school are still clear. The original entrance doorways still hold the decoration of the old school entrances and the roof space is still open to the rafters. The fire surrounds from the old classrooms are still visible and the large high small paned windows remain at either end of the building. At present, the building consists of a main hall, a smaller meeting room and an extensive well-equipped kitchen. It has served the village well over the years and we hope it will continue to do so for many years to come. In more ‘normal’ times, typical events throughout the year would include monthly music evenings (jazz, folk music, blues, rock bands, modern contemporary etc.), Christmas and Easter Bingo sessions, a dog show and car boot sale, the annual flower and produce show, several quiz evenings (with homemade puddings on offer between rounds as an added incentive!), inter-village skittles matches, a Big Breakfast morning and a wine tasting evening. The hall is also available for hire to local people/groups for weddings, christenings, children’s parties, meetings etc. We have badminton and table tennis equipment for hire by parishioners and hold tap dance classes during the day. Recently, we have extended these activities by holding a series of illustrated talks by local dignitaries and introducing beetle drives, family shows during school holidays and generally responding to requests from our community wherever we can. However, as for many villages up and down the country, these past twelve months have been very difficult. The Covid19 epidemic, which shut down the whole nation and led to the compulsory closure of our Hall, has brought many challenges, both financial and social. We have seen great changes to life in our Village. With no Hall available during lockdown, some of our activities have managed to move on-line to the Village website, but for those living in areas with little or patchy internet connection, it has been a lonely time. However, villagers have done what they can to keep going and thank goodness for Zoom! We have held on-line coffee mornings and quizzes, organized village trails and a cream tea delivery service, set up bring and buy plant stalls and recently organized a book borrowing service from the main square. Our main difficulty throughout this pandemic has been the deterioration of the Village Hall roof. In January 2020, we were all set to start a big fund-raising push to raise the £150 000 we need to get the roof replaced, but lockdown put a stop to that. However, we do not despair and with the New Year, we have new hope and are busy organizing the launch of a Massive “RoofUs “ appeal so that with a little help from our friends, we can continue the life of this amazing building and see our village equipped with its hall in good repair well into the next decade.

St Giles in The Wood Parish Hall
Our beloved parish hall was donated by Colonel and Mrs James in 1930 and is almost the same today as back then. Over the years it has hosted, autumn show teas, funerals, birthday parties, weddings, Bingo, whist drives, dances celebrations, mothers and toddler groups and meetings. One of the highlights of our village year is our annual pantomime, great entertainment and full of laughter and fun; it brings our community together through the winter months. Although in need of some refurbishment we love it and will continue the fight to maintain and improve it.

Stokeinteignhead Village Hall
We are an active community centre hosting several local organisations, a centre for dance classes, yoga, film shows and popular as a wedding reception venue. Despite the lockdowns during 2020 we were keen to remain active and of service to our village. We managed to attract a Yoga class at a time when health and wellbeing was becoming very important. We asked for donations of books as people were clearing out their attics and opened as a library, we quickly acquired 1000 fiction titles and 200 non-fiction and collected for charity. We had always offered an ‘outreach’ book delivery service to those people shielding and during the present lockdown we have continued and expanded that service. We look forward to providing a friendly ‘Covid secure’ venue for the community to get together again as soon as the lockdown is eased and people become more confident.
Strete Parish Hall
The Hall opened in 1951 and over the years has been updated so that it now possesses disabled access and facilities, double glazing, central heating, a modern kitchen with an industrial dishwasher, acoustic panels and more! From 1955-1989 the Hall was rented by the Youth Hostel Association for summer use. When open the Hall runs Stretch and Yoga classes, Short Mat Bowls takes place and a Social Club meets twice a month. It can be booked for parties, receptions and wakes. Parish and Hall Committee Meetings take place once a month and every month a social event for the village is held to help raise money for the upkeep of the building. The Hall is ready to go whenever the Government gives the go-ahead
Swimbridge Jubilee Hall
Swimbridge is a small vibrant village located between Barnstaple and South Molton, with a strong sense of community. The Hall had a major £635k refurbishment in 2015 which has enabled us to offer a place for social activities for all ages, theatre, workshops, indoor sports, meetings, and so much more. Our community work together and this was highlighted during Covid 19 in 2020-21 when the Hall was used as the collection point for parcels for Foodbank and the local community in need. We also set up a Covid support group enabling those in need to get support 24/7 which won North Devon’s first Coronavirus Hero Points of Light Award. The Hall’s activities enable people to come together and to get to know one another ... helping it to become the community it is.

Tedburn St Mary Village Hall
The village hall in Tedburn St Mary was originally built in 1929. This was a wooden structure and was erected on land donated by Miss Cuddiford of Thorwood House. It was run by the parish council until 1952 when a management committee was formed, it is still run in this way today. The hall was re built in 1974 as a brick and render structure. It had taken seven years to raise the £20,000 needed. The hall was opened by Mr A Milne who had given additional land for this new building. In 1990 an extension was added to the main hall, the design being drawn up by Mr Christopher Gibb of Tedburn St Mary. This room is known as the John Bromell Room. It provides space for meetings and has a small kitchen area to provide drinks and light refreshments. The main hall has a large stage with professional lighting and back room storage and facilities. In the main hall there is a good sized kitchen with ample facilities. In addition there are small offices and storage facilities for use by different organisations. Prior to March 2020, the hall was used by the following organisations: The Toddlers Group, Sara’s School (pre school), Children’s breakfast club, After School Club, Judo, Karate, Drama Group, The Farmers Market, The Tremletts Bingo, The Tremletts Coffee Morning, Womens Institute, The Badminton Club, The Parish Council as well as assorted fund raising events and one off annual events such as the Spring Flower Show and seasonal lunches. The hall is available for private functions, wedding receptions, children’s parties etc. On land attached to the hall there is a large car park, the village post office with a re-purposed telephone box. (Now used as a free library and the Tedburn larder.) There are also re-cycling bins and a clothes bank.

Teign Valley Community Hall
Thurlestone Parish Hall
The Parish has had a Community Village Hall here since 1949 but in 2005 the old tired narrow prefab was demolished for a wonderful modern, spacious multi-functional hall with great facilities. It has been the hub of our community events ever since. Thurlestone Parish Hall has proved to be the perfect venue for all activities and can be booked by residents, visitors and businesses alike. It has accommodated: Various Community Events * Fund Raising * Leisure Activities * Concerts * Meetings * Clubs * Wedding Receptions * Family Celebrations * Concerts * Shows * Lectures * Conferences * Training * Commercial Sales.

Ugborough Village Hall.jpeg
Ugborough Village Hall
Our present Village Hall building opened in the early 1970s and a first-floor extension was added a few years later. The Village Hall is managed by a Committee of volunteer trustees including user group representatives accountable to the community. The Hall is a registered charity and operates according to the constitution established at its foundation. The village of Ugborough is a small rural mixed community with no shops and limited public transport links, so the Village Hall is important as a community meeting place for the village. It is the only fully accessible community facility which can be hired out for both public and private use by those in the village and the surrounding area at affordable rates. Over the years the Village Hall has had a wide range of regular hires from both groups and individuals including Preschool, Toddlers, Breakfast Club, After School Club, School, Pilates, History Group meetings, Sustainable Saturdays markets for local suppliers including the Café , Tuesday Lunch Club, Senior Citizens Christmas Meal, Fair events, Children’s parties, Workshops, Church events, Polling Station, Parish Council meetings, Amateur Dramatics, Whist Drives, Rubber Bridge, Badminton, Table Tennis, First Aid training courses, group social functions, fundraisers and other individual private hires. We have a continuous programme of maintenance and improvements subject to available funding to keep the Village Hall compliant, comfortable and well equipped. The Parish Council defibrillator is housed externally on the front of the Village Hall and all appropriate checks are completed and reported to the Parish Council and South-Western Ambulance Service Accreditation Scheme. Since March 2020, the Village Hall has had limited use due to Government Covid -19 restrictions – it has however been used for a restricted Breakfast Club/Preschool/After School Club, emergency Post Office following temporary relocation from its usual venue which became unavailable due to restrictions and First Aid Training classes. The Committee has been active in its support throughout, working with hirers putting in place appropriate COVID risk assessments, automatic sanitisers on entry/exit from the building, purchasing a fogging machine to assist with the additional cleans that are now required between hires to keep Users safe within the changing restrictions. ACRE and Devon Communities Together continue to support us with valuable advice and support, and small business grants from the government have been a critical financial lifeline for us. Our Committee are hopeful for the future and looking forward to welcoming back our full community to the Village Hall as and when appropriate.

Popular Hall serving the community of West Down in rural North Devon
Whimple Victory Hall
Currently we are open for the Primary School (sited next door) to use the main hall on a daily basis, as it does in ‘normal’ times. A separate room hired by the Pre-School is also currently open to children. All other groups are not able to hire or use the hall at the moment (as at January 2021). We are hoping to undertake a major refurbishment in the near future; the building is 100 years old and in need of some fabric related repairs as well as a general upgrade that we hope will make it fit for use for the next 100 years.
Woolacombe Village Hall
Our hall had just started on an extensive renovation work when the first lockdown occurred. The work is long since completed and we are waiting patiently to hold our official ‘reopening’ celebrations 51 years after the hall was built.
