The Village Hall and Recreation Grounds are situated centrally in the village.
Several local organisations use the Village Hall. As a result of hiring, the hall hosts various events of diverse interest. The Carpet Bowls Club meets here as does the Silver Ash Club, Zumba and a Dog Training class. The hall is also used as a venue for local and village events, annual events and private functions. The Parish Council hold their monthly meetings in the smaller of the two halls.
The main hall has a curtained stage, a modern kitchen and toilets. There is also a small hall with double doors into the main hall. The small hall has its own entrance, toilet facilities, a small but useful kitchen area and can be hired independently. Both halls have access to an enclosed open space with a covered patio. This area is gated and opens onto the recreation ground. Here is a large playing field suitable for sporting activities and a new children's playground.
The hall is available to hire for functions, parties, classes etc The small hall currently costs £8 per hour and the main hall £12 per hour to hire.
