The Hall is 44 feet by 18.5 feet approx (13.2m by 5.6 m approx)and is a comfortable and cosy venue large enough to seat approximately 60 people (or 100 people standing). It has 900Mbps (FAST!) fibre broadband with WiFi, a powerful audio system with CD/DVD player and projector, a fully equipped kitchen, off road parking and a skittle alley.

It is run by a volunteer management committee. Maintenance is funded from lettings, special events and occasional donations. The Hall operates as a non-profit making charitable trust and recently received a Hallmark Stage 1 Award which shows it meets all criteria in good management systems.

Anyone can book the Hall, which includes a (non-league) 9 pin skittle alley, for private use.

With the advent of Fibre broadband coming to the Village through a project called Fastershire and provided by Gigaclear, the Village Hall now is supplied by 900Mbps Fibre broadband and WiFi network, kindly supplied by Gigaclear.
