EARLY DAYS
1900 - 1999


THE FIRST VILLAGE HALL

Located on the Main Road through
Hulland Ward, the original village hall
comprised of a large hall with
two wings on the southern side.

In the right wing lay changing rooms
and conveniences for the boys.

The left wing (seen below) housed the
well-equipped Kitchen with its large,
oblong hatchopening onto the main hall;
changing rooms with conveniences for
the girls; and a door leading to a
grassed area at the back.

Near the entrance, a side door opened
onto a narrow staircase leading up to
a store room utilised by the various
groups who used the Hall on a
regular basis.

THE SECOND VILLAGE HALL

The local population had grown.
The need for more space and
up-to-date equipment was pressing.

Increased traffic along the Main Road
raised concerns about safety when
crossing the road to reach the Hall.

The decision to build a new Hall was made
but this raised fresh questions.

The biggest question, of course, was
how would it be paid for?

The Year 2000 was fast-approaching
and there was a chance of applying
for a Millennium Grant from the
National Lottery.

The wheels of a grant application
were set in motion with a
successful conclusion.

Not only was the grant awarded
but it meant that the new building
had the honour of being
the first Millennium Village Hall
in the United Kingdom.
