ABOUT US

The current Village Hall was built in 2000, following a massive fund raising effort.  It was a millennium project.  Prior to that the villagers used a building in Rectory Road, a wooden army hut which was surplus to requirements after the first world war.  It served the village for 80 years. 

 

The official title of the hall is 'Elsing Memorial Hall' reflecting the fact that it is dedicated to the memory of those villagers who sadly perished in the 2 world wars.

The hall is managed on behalf of the villagers by a voluntary committee of Trustees who are elected at each AGM.  They are responsible for ensuring that the hall is used and maintained appropriately and for raising funds to facilitate this.
