Wenhaston Good Village Guide 2017


Wenhaston Village Hall

Opened in 1975 following a massive village effort in both fundraising and volunteer labour to replace the previous village hut, and all co-ordinated by Wenhaston Community Council, this impressive hall comprises a large main hall (big enough for badminton), also a wide stage with dressing rooms, bar facilities, kitchen, toilets, a community room and car park. The notable working sundial on the end wall was commissioned and placed by Wenhaston Community Council as one of their celebratory year 2000 millennium projects. In 2009 the Hall underwent extensive improvements intended to reduce the Hall's carbon footprint, part of which was the installation of a biomass boiler and heating system. There is easy access to the Hall for wheelchairs. 

Wenhaston Post Office is open in the Hall foyer on weekdays 9am–1pm (not Bank Holidays).

Here you will also find the ‘Book Exchange’, a popular free service for all to use and also wall-hung allocated Pockets where you can leave correspondence for village groups and organisations.

The Hall is a Registered Charity (Number 1001694) run by a Management Committee formed mainly from the village organisations who are users of the Hall. Such organisations include Wenhaston WI, Table Tennis group, Badminton Club, Gardener's Club, Wenhaston WEA and others. Contact Robin Dillaway 01502 478966.

Wenhaston Village Hall 100 Club was launched in 2011 to raise much-needed funds for the village hall. For a monthly stake of just £1 there is a chance to win one of three cash prizes with an extra draw in December.
