About Woodley Village Hall

Woodley Village Hall is located in School Road, Woodley (on the Woodley triangle, about one hundred metres from the Hunters Inn public house, situated on the corner of School Road and the main Winchester Road).

In 1975 the old Church of England primary school in School Road, Woodley was bought by the Romsey Extra Parish Council from the Church Commissioners in order that Romsey Extra might have a village hall. Generous grants from the County, the Borough Council and the Parish Council, together with a local appeal, eventually raised the funds to replace the old buildings with a custom built Hall. The old school was demolished in April and the new Hall completed in October 1986.

It currently offers three function rooms for hire: the main hall (Woodley Room), a spacious hall and raised stage suitable for larger functions, theatricals, meetings, dance etc; the Crampmoor Room, a mid-sized room suitable for smaller functions and events; and a smaller room, the Ganger Room is also available for committee meetings and similar functions, and as an additional room if required for use in conjunction with the main hall.

The Hall has been the home of the local NOMADS amateur dramatics group since its inception. NOMADS assisted with the original fund raising and have continued to put on shows, plays, pantomime and other events ever since, raising money for local charities in the process.

There is a fitted kitchen, with serving hatch to the Crampmoor Room and the smaller Ganger Room also has its own recently installed kitchenette unit. Crockery etc is available for hire.

Rooms are available for hire for community events, private functions and parties, and appropriate commercial hire. This website is currently being developed to show photographs, hire details etc.

More details can currently be obtained from the bookings secretary who can be contacted by email at wvha_1@hotmail.co.uk.

The Hall is a registered charity and is owned by trustees and administered by a management committee on behalf of local residents. The committee meets monthly, usually on the third Wednesday of the month at 7.30pm at the Hall. Members of the public are very welcome to attend and contribute, and anyone interested in donating a little time, perhaps as a future committee member, or even just occasionally able to take part on a volunteer work party doing some painting, gutter clearing etc would be warmly welcomed.
