the village hall

Siddington Village Hall sits in the heart of the village on Ashton Road, just a short distance south of the shop and post office. It was built in 1921 in memory of those who died in World War I, and since then it has become the hub of the community, providing a venue for clubs, classes, fetes, parish events and celebrations as well as private parties. Anyone can hire the hall on a regular or one-off basis and can choose between the spacious main room, which holds up to 100 people, and the smaller committee room, which is ideal for meetings or smaller groups. Hire charges are very reasonable and there are discounted rates for Siddington residents. Additional reductions are available for regular bookings and block bookings of a morning or afternoon. See the website for a full list of hiring rates.

Keep in touch with all The Village Hall News on Facebook.

The hall is managed by a team of friendly trustees, all Siddington residents themselves, whose aim is to maintain the building to the highest standards.

If you would like to find out more about what’s going at the hall, you can check the notice boards on the front of the building or visit the website. To book, please contact the bookings secretary on 07407352025.

The hall is a registered charity and is wholly owned by the people of Siddington. The Object of the Charity is:

‘The provision and maintenance of a village hall for the use of the inhabitants of the Parish of Siddington without distinction of political, religious or other opinions, including use for meetings, lectures and classes, and for other forms of recreation and leisure-time occupation, with the object of improving the conditions of life for said inhabitants.’

Every resident over the age of 18 is eligible to attend and vote at the Annual General Meeting (AGM). The Chairman, Treasurer and Secretary are elected annually. The Governing Document states that the Committee of Management should consist of:

  • Three members representing Siddington Parish Council, St. Peter’s Church and Siddington Women’s Institute
  • Five elected members (elected at the AGM)
  • Two co-opted members (to be co-opted at any Committee meeting at the discretion of the Committee)
We are currently in need of trustees and helpers. We have three vacancies for trustees. The trustees are responsible for the management of the hall and meet approximately every six weeks. Alternatively, if you don’t want to be a trustee you could help out with events or help to keep the garden tidy. Please contact denys.young@btinternet.com for further information.

Village Hall AGM – Tuesday 17th November at 7.30pm

Given the current restrictions it is not possible to hold a physical AGM this year. Instead we will be holding the meeting on line, which will allow all interested Siddington residents to join virtually using the Zoom platform. Zoom is easy to use and can be downloaded via your computer’s internet browser.

There will be an opportunity to ask any questions about the content of the Chairman’s Annual Report and the Treasurer’s accounts, which will be available on the Village Hall website for a period prior to the meeting date.

An amendment to the governing document will also be included on the agenda to authorise holding the AGM in a virtual format. If you would like to attend the meeting please contact the Chairman Denys Young via email (denys.young@btinternet.com). Denys will then send you an email invitation with a meeting link.
