History of the hall

 

Nether Heyford Village Hall was built with the help of volunteer labour and completed in May 1960 as a prefabricated cedar wood building. Brick extensions were added in 1991 to provide new toilets and kitchen at one end, a storage room and committee room with toilet and kitchenette at the other and an access ramp to the front door.

In August 2003 work started on updating the hall – UPVC double glazed windows, insulation and cladding to the front and rear of the wooden section was fitted, together with new front and kitchen doors. Again all the work was done by villagers giving their time and expertise voluntarily.

An insulated roof was added in 2006 and in October 2008 the Pre School transformed the area at the rear of the hall with an outdoor play surface to make a secure outdoor area for the young children. Since then the remaining doors and windows have been replaced, new gas boilers fitted and decoration carried out annually whilst maintenance continues by our volunteer team. Other improvement projects have included:

  • Sound System & Induction Loop (hearing) system (2002)

  • Replacement Fire Doors (2008)

  • New energy efficient boilers for heat and hot water.

  • Replacement of rest of external doors & windows (2009)

  • Finger guards on doors (2010)

  • In the summer of 2011 the kitchen was completely refurbished

  • Ceiling fans were installed in April 2013

  • In 2014 the ladies toilets were completely refurbished

  • Also in 2014 new chairs were purchased for the main hall and lockable storage cupboards for all the regular users

  • 2 thermostats were installed in the main hall in 2014

  • Lighting in main areas of the hall upgraded to LED during 2016-17

Over the years, it has been used for all manner of events, from pre-school to pantomimes and dances to dinner parties.  It is conservatively decorated and can offer seating for up to 120 people.  There are facilities for wedding receptions and family parties, including:

  • Main Hall with stage

  • Kitchen
