Lurgashall Village Hall is just over 100 years old and still going strong! In 2014 we celebrated the Hall’s centenary with several fun events, two exhibitions and a booklet about its history – copies available (£5 each) at firstname.lastname@example.org
REGULAR EVENTS in the Hall include:
Village Lunches – usually held on the second Monday of each month, everyone in the parish can come and enjoy good company and the excellent lunches cooked by members of the village. Just sign up in the Village Shop or call Erica on 707162 and pay £4 when you arrive at the door. Wine is £2 a glass and raffle tickets for a homemade cake are £1 each. Lunch starts at 1pm.
Village Teas – usually held on the last Wednesday of each month, this is an opportunity to catch up with friends or meet new people over a cup of tea and scrumptious homemade cakes! Tea and a piece of cake costs just £2 and doors are open 3 – 5pm.
Film Nights – usually held on the first Wednesday of each month, when the Hall makes a cosy, informal cinema. With our high-quality screen and Bose surround-sound system, we show up-to-date films. Parking outside is free, there is a cash Bar (and ice-creams in the interval, of course!) and for a mere £5 admittance on the door, our Film Nights are open for all to enjoy without the hassle (and expense) of going to a big town cinema.
The Hall is run on behalf of the community and the Parish Council by a Management Committee which arranges the regular events (above) and other activities in the Hall and manages the upkeep of the building. The 50:50 club helps raise funds for the Hall through inviting subscriptions from local residents in return for monthly raffles with cash prizes.
The Hall has recently been fully refurbished and now bears the Hallmark Quality Assurance awards (levels 1 and 2) for high-quality facilities, management and services. This scheme is run by Action in Rural Sussex to establish and reward good practice and standards in village halls.
“As ever the hall is a pleasure to use. Everything worked perfectly and it was beautifully clean. It’s such a charming hall and all our guests’ parents commented on how lucky we are to have it on our doorstep.” Kate, children’s party
