Village Hall Progress

A huge round of thanks to the fantastic villagers who have helped with the latest round of improvements: Jess Maggs & Kaylea Pollard for their chair cleaning and sorting; Paul Clayton for fixing and painting the store room ready for shelves; and Steve Jones for our brilliant new veranda! The roof screws are currently being replaced so we will soon be leak free! Next job is repainting the interior, if you would be willing to help please let a committee member know.

Our New Sign

The new Village Hall name sign has arrived!

The veranda decking is being replaced next. And if you notice a few chaps climbing on the roof, they’re putting in self-sealing screws to stop the leaks!

New Veranda Taking Shape

The old veranda decking had become unsafe and the railings had been vandalised over the years, so we've been working hard to restore it to its former splendour!

Big thanks to Paul Clayton & Graham Jones for their work painting the steelwork today, looking sharp!

Next will be the new decking, and then we'll be ready for the next Village Day just as soon as we're allowed to reopen.

We have a few more jobs coming up, big and small, so if you’re able to help please let Val Jones know: hall.secretary@stoneaston.org.uk

More Plants for the Hall

Many thanks to Cerian from George’s Garden at Gurney Slade, who very kindly donated beautiful fuchsias and antirrhinums to fill the last planter outside our Village Hall.

Village Hall Colour

You may have noticed a bit of colour brightening up the village hall this week, new signs and noticeboard coming soon! Big thanks to Val Jones and Lyndsay Thomas for their green fingers.

The spring flower swap has ended and a donation of leftover primroses has been made to Helen for a new wildflower meadow at Happy Landings. We plan to do a Summer Flower Swap and will keep you posted, thank you to all who participated!

Village Hall - Makeover

It's time to give our Village Hall a makeover. After ten years of use there are lots of things that really need to be repaired or improved, ready for the next ten years of service to our village community.

We've got big plans for future facilities in the hall, but our first priority is to get what's already there back into pristine condition - redecoration and repairs, and a new efficient heating system before the winter chill arrives.


Follow our progress.

There's a lot to do and a lot to keep track of, so we're using a Trello Board to help. Click on the button below to see the Big Plan and how we're progressing through it. (It will open in a separate tab or page.)

Then you can come back another time to see how we're doing. Better still, you can see what needs doing and join us!


We need volunteers!

Please take a look at what's already been achieved, and what still needs to be done. If there's something you'd be willing to take on or help with, or if you have a special skill or knowledge that we could use, please let us know. We'd love to hear from you.
Contact Val at hall.secretary@stoneaston.org.uk and join the team.


Thanks for reading! Now let's see how quickly we can move all those "future tasks" into "achievements".

Village Hall - Booking

Booking the hall

The hall has excellent disabled access and toilet facilities, and is big enough to accommodate large seated events such as wedding receptions. The kitchen has a large cooker, a fridge and a full supply of crockery, cutlery etc. For children's parties there is sufficient room for an indoor bouncy castle, and there's ample performance space for musical events and concerts.

The hall can be booked for individual events or for recurring events such as social gatherings or club/society meetings. The standard charge rate is currently £8 per hour, but depending on required usage an additional charge may be made for cleaning and a deposit may be required.

For children's parties, a Party Pack is available for hire from our local primary school PTA. Click below for details.

Brightly coloured plates, bowls, mugs etc so you don't need to supply your own or use flimsy disposable cardboard! This is subject to availability from the PTA and subject to their separate hire terms - currently just £5 to rent and £5 deposit.

To discuss booking arrangements please contact Lyndsay Thomas:
