Winford Village Hall

Brief History

 

The original main hall was built in 1926, on the present site.In it’s early years it was registered as a charity with the Charity Commission.

The initial Constitution included, on the management committee, representatives from well-known local families, for example the Wyatts, Vowles, Bulls, Yorks, Foxes and Wedlakes. Affiliated members included the then Rector, the Reverend Arthur Hobbs. Throughout their period of office management committee members were also trustees of Win ford Village Hal

In the original constitution the use of the property stated that the hall should be used for the most worthy aims of “physical and mental training and recreational, social, moral and intellectual development, through the medium of reading and recreation rooms, a library, lectures, classes, recreation and entertainment”.

Whist in recent years the constitution has been revised and updated, the present hall committee has been careful to abide by the aims and spirit of the original.

Whilst the physical development of the hall has been restricted by existing boundaries, certain improvements have been made in the 1970’s. Extensions to the kitchen, toilets and lobbies on the western elevation, plus additional storage accommodation on the eastern boundaries were implemented. In more recent years the hall has generally been updated, with the installation of central heating in the 1990’s. Also most recently, in an endeavour to make the hall “user friendly”, new external ramps and toilet accommodation for the disabled have been installed.

Finally, at present, the hall still retains its focal point in the heart of the village. It is regularly hired every weekday by a variety of organisations and users, plus parties and social events. Win ford Village Hall is managed by an active and enthusiastic committee, with the aspirations of its founder members as guidance in its decision-making.
