MOGGERHANGER VILLAGE HALL
Blunham Road, Moggerhanger, MK44 3RB
The village hall offers a modern atractive venue and excellent facilities for many different types of use. It serves the village very well, thanks to a very active committee and dedicated Trustees.
We aim to fully comply with all revelvant legislation and safety requirements. Statutory and other inspections are carried out regularly and should there be any recommendations these are acted on promptly.
Moggerhanger Village Hall is one of the village’s main community assets. Local organisations and outside functions have made good use which increases year by year. The licensed bar is a very beneficial attraction for which we have our own rota of staff to assist with its running.
There is no let up with requests for the services that the Hall’s Trustees are able to offer our community and those who book for various functions.
Regular uses are for the ‘Keep Fit’ exercise class on a Friday and the Folk Nights on a Wednesday. Bingo and Whist continue to be equally popular with mixed village and outsider following. Thursday afternoons now see a weekly T-dance though this has only limited following from Moggerhanger. As normal the hall has provided several major functions throughout the year with cooked meals, slide shows, dances and quizzes. Several of our village functions have completely sold out well in advance of the date, which is fantastic.
With continual development of facilities in mind, we have now been able to purchase the land adjacent to the hall to allow us to aim for additional car parking space and areas for outside and recreational functions. This was seen as a ‘once in a lifetime’ project. Road parking, although invariably possible during major village events, is far from ideal. Certain planning procedures are being undertaken at the moment to alleviate the problem.
Obviously, this is all taking a lot of organising and further fund-raising, although some preliminary preparation is continuing as fast as we can. Gates and fencing have been installed along with over 100 metres of hedgerows for the entire length of the field. Hedging has also been planted alongside adjacent property and to the rear of the hall. This will not only be attractive but will provide a natural ‘green’ border to the new patio area.
