As you may know, we have building work underway behind the Village Hall. Today, a lorry delivering concrete posts and other supplies caused a -ahem- slight problem when it sank in a drainage gully. The lorry posed a serious risk to the village hall, but caused great excitement to the Pre school children, who had to be moved to the rear of the building for safety.
Attempts to release the vehicle with a tow truck were hampered by the muddy ground, and it wasn’t till early evening that heavy moving equipment finally pulled it free. Meanwhile, an afternoon session of the Bowls Club had to be cancelled and police officers arrived to supervise the exit from Walberton School. Hall staff and the Hall Chairman stayed on site all day to ensure that safety procedures were carried out, having to remain at the rear of the building until the all-clear was given.
Despite the ongoing works, the Hall is open for business as usual and is as busy as ever!
The modern, spacious hall was opened in April 1989 after several years of fundraising by the villagers. The hall operates as a charity, and is entirely self-supporting.
As well as being the hub of Walberton village's many groups and clubs, the Hall also hosts many concerts by local, national and international artists and is used for a wide variety of private and business functions including:
- Wedding receptions
- Christening parties
- Sound recordings
- Photo shoots
- Support and rehearsal rooms for provincial theatres
- Antiques valuations
- Meetings and training sessions
Both our main and small halls are equipped for all types of social function. With its pleasant outlook Walberton Village Hall could be just the venue for your event.
