The Village Hall
Broomfield Village Hall was built in 1854 as the village school and teacher’s house. During the 1950s the building was bought for the village and the school became the village hall as we know it today. It is situated at the centre of the village adjacent to the Church and Village Green.
The hall is held in trust and run by members of the community for use by local villagers and others who wish to enjoy the tranquility of the setting. Fund raising activities and hiring of the hall bring in the income to keep the hall in good repair.
The picturesque hall is especially well suited for small family wedding parties, children’s birthdays and other similar events. The Harvest Supper is an annual event held in the hall in the Autumn. Other village events have included ‘big breakfasts’ in May, a pumpkin growing competition in October as well as ‘soups and puds’ evenings, whist drives, craft sales, quiz nights and jumble sales. Art exhibitions by local artists have proved successful for both the hall and the artists.
The hall consists of a main ‘L’ shaped area plus cloakrooms, updated toilet facilities (including disabled), fully fitted kitchen and quick and efficient heating system. All of the building is on one floor with only one step at each of the two main entrance doors.
There is a small rear garden as well as the pretty flower garden at the front of the hall both for use by hirers.
Parking is available on the road in front of the hall or at the rear in the parish car park.
