Community Hall

The Community Hall is part of St Mary's Church, hidden away inside the church building it is used by the community for many different events and many different groups. Currently this includes, Guide, Brownies, Rainbows, Yoga, Thai Chi, Driver Awareness, Goan Seniors, social events and crochet.


It is available for private hire by individuals and organisations at very reasonable rates.

The facilities were completely refurbished in 2015, and the building now boasts a carpeted foyer (ground floor), accessible toilets (ground and first floors), modern kitchen (first floor), eco-heating system, fully-carpeted hall (first floor), intercom system and step free access; a lift serves the hall, the north entrance door and the nave of the church (below ground floor level).

There is a small car park with enough room for about 10 cars, and plenty of other parking in the vicinity. For more information about parking click here.

The legal capacity is 100 people standing or 75 people seated, or an appropriate ratio of the two. Please note, owing to current Covid-19 requirements these numbers are significantly reduced depending on use, and the kitchen is closed.
