Welcome to the Home Page for Edgmond Village Hall
The Village Hall is a well used local amenity and is available to all to hire. It hosts many of the local community groups and is used for parties and meetings, clubs and classes.
The Hall is run by a Management Committee of up to 8 elected trustees plus several representative trustees from some community groups. Ten people make up the current Committee and we are responsible for the maintenance & administration of the Hall.
A Little Bit of History
In 1906 a piece of land at the junction of the High Street and Robin Lane was
given by the Bishop of Shrewsbury “…for the purposes of an Institute, for
the benefit of persons residing in Edgmond….”. By 1908 the buildings,
including a library, reading and billiards room and caretaker’s lodge
In 1920 the current Village Hall land was bought by the trustees, who then
set about finding a suitable building. The building they found was
originally a redundant army building and was transported from Prees Heath.
It has been said that it took longer to transport than it did to re-assemble!
A tennis court and a bowling green were situated on the field, but during
the WW II years these fell into disuse and disrepair.
In 1965 the original corner plot was sold and the proceeds were set aside
for the benefit of the Village Hall. Since then the original building has
had a kitchen and toilets added…. but its basic structure is almost 100
The Village Hall Now
The Hall has three rooms for different activities:
The Main Hall is 15 x 9 metres with a permanent stage at one end. It has a lovely wooden floor ideal for dancing and good for martial arts.
The Small Hall (Room 2) is 5 x 9 metres and has a bar and direct access to the
kitchen. This is a good room for setting out food at parties or making into a
quieter area when there is live music.
The Committee Room (Room 3) is 6 x 3metres and has tables set up for meetings.
