Who we are
Who we are
Set in rural surroundings in the historic Herefordshire village of Pudleston-cum-Whyle, our Village Hall with its grounds and car park is a centre of community life.
Built in the late nineteenth century as the village school, the site was taken over by the community in 1982 when the school closed. Since that time there have been numerous alterations including improved disabled access, a recently refurbished kitchen and a ‘book share’ porch to enable local residents to freely swap and borrow books.
Our most recent upgrade includes a new ceiling-mounted projector and a surround sound system.
The hall is well used for a variety of events and activities and offers:
> A quiet rural setting;
> Capacity for up to 70 guests or attendees
> A modern fully functioning kitchen designed to food hygiene standards
> Tables, chairs, cutlery, crockery and glassware
> Main hall, plus additional small meeting room
> Full broad band connection, ceiling-mounted projector, sound system, and large screen
> Car park
> Outside space suitable for a marquee
Pudleston Village Hall is a charitable institution, Charity Commission No.215181. It is run as a non-profit organisation by a voluntary management committee who are responsible for hirings, fund raising and maintenance of the buildings and grounds. If you have ideas about how we can improve, or would like to help run the hall and become involved in community events, please contact the hall secretary, Roger Fryer, on 01568 750303.
The hall is managed by a committee of volunteers who act as trustees. A new committee with three officers (chairman, tresurer and secretary) is elected each year at the AGM. There is no restriction on the number of years a committee member may stand for re-election. The 2021-2022 management committee elected on 26th May 2021 is as follows:
