All Hallows Parish Hall
The Parish Hall on Church Lane is well used by groups, old and new users alike. It is very popular for events such as children's parties and christening parties. 'Red Roofs', as some have dubbed the hall, is undergoing a series of improvements. To the outward eye the re-roofing is the main change but internally an important improvement has been the upgrading of the kitchen. The larger cooker means that we can cater for large groups and anyone hiring the hall for a party can prepare food in the kitchen rather than at home. This improvement has been achieved with the help of a grant from WREN in 2010 (Waste Recycling Environmental). We have also had help from Bassetlaw Council and Nottinghamshire County Council.
Various fundraising events have also been held including the Scarecrow Festival, Village Ventures events and quiz nights. The Village Ventures events, organised by Shirley and Peter Thomas, have proved to be extremely popular. This touring scheme enables over 140 professional performances to be presented in community buildings across Nottinghamshire. Run by local volunteers village halls and community centres host a wide variety of shows ranging from opera to comedy, drama to world music and storytelling to dance. Village Ventures enables local people to see top class artists in their own communities.
In 2013 a further grant was received from WREN to provide new windows, ceilings, external doors and decorating. Support has also been received from WREN and the Ordsall Art Group. Bassetlaw District Council and Nottinghamshire County Council helped with the provision of equipment.
