Situated in the small Downland village of West Hendred just off the A417 between Wantage and Didcot, the Hall is set in its own land adjacent to the village play park and football pitch. There is a hard-standing car park for 19 cars and a designated disabled parking space. A paved terrace runs the length of the Hall. Two double french doors open onto the terrace and provide easy access to the car park.
The original Hall was demolished and rebuilt in 2004-2005, thanks to local fundraising and donations, and generous grants from The Lottery Fund, DEFRA, WREN, the Vale District Council, OCC and the Parish Council.The new purpose-built Hall was re-opened in June 2005 with the official ribbon cut by Billy Atkins and Kath Rixon, the youngest and oldest members of the same longstanding Hendred family.
The Village Hall is managed by a Committee of trustees and advisers for the benefit of the village and the surrounding area. Any profit is used for the benefit of the local community, for example to help subsidise professional theatre shows for all ages. If you are interested in joining the committee or want to discuss anything which concerns the Hall, please contact Hugh Rees (Chair) or Chantal Ligertwood (Secretary) via firstname.lastname@example.org
