The Village Hall is occupied by the school during school days until 5.30pm. Out of school hours it is available for the use of village residents and organisations. It has a large stage and adjoining kitchen. Adjoining the Hall is a smaller meeting room called the Green Room which is for the sole use of the village. This is used by the playgroup currently two mornings a week. It is also used for Parish Council and other smaller meetings.
