Village Hall

Village Hall

The Village Hall is run by an excellent committee (the Trustees); all of whom are dedicated to its success.

Hirers are asked to leave the hall as they find it – namely clean and tidy.

This minimises the time spent by its part-time cleaner which in turn helps to minimise hiring charges.

In light of HM Government COFID19 guidelines which require Trustees to produce a COVID-19 risk assessment –  that has been done. It has reduced the number that can be accommodated in each room to comply with social distancing.

The Trustees have been advised that, in addition, hirers should write a COVID-19 risk assessment that is specific to their activities in the Village Hall. This is because different activities, such as sports and social gatherings, carry different types of risk. The best people to assess such risks are those responsible for hiring the Hall, who also have a duty of care. The Lettings Secretary will provide you with a suitable form which must be filled in and returned at least two weeks before your booking

Each year in the summer the Trustees sponsor a Supper followed by entertainment for the senior citizens of the village. This is always very well attended by about 100 residents and is free . There is a long tradition of holding these suppers – last 2018 summer was the 90th !

Each year, at Easter & Christmas, Fayres are held.  Village Bingo is held once a month on Friday and the Village Café is open every Tuesday (this has been running continuously since the new hall was opened.) . There is a Village Cinema generally once a month when some of the latest films are shown using the hall’s state of the art projection equipment.

*Comberton Players

Comberton Players was founded when the new hall was opened. Two productions are staged each year – a play in the summer and a pantomime in December. These are always well supported. The Players are the main users of the demountable modular stage which has the advantage that the size and shape can be adapted to requirements.
