A friendly village hall for the community run by local volunteers
The first village hall in Countess Wear was built in 1922 by local men returning from the war, after the locally residing Lady Granger kindly gifted the land to the community to be used for such a building. In more recent years, members of the village hall committee and local community put in huge amounts of hard work to fund raise the money needed to build a lovely, new, modern hall (no more having to worry about a tin roof!) and in 2016, the hard work paid off and our current village hall was built.
We're proud to currently offer a wide range of activities, courses and events to the local community and we're able to offer great spaces available for hire.
We're excited to be hosting a craft fair this Autumn! There will be a variety of local crafters here with lovely things for sale from home made, organic soaps to textiles and Christmas decorations.
We will also have hot drinks and cakes available to enjoy with a sit down, so even if you just want to pop in for a cuppa and a look around, everyone is welcome!
We're teaming up with the lovely Kat from The Creation Station Exeter and Mid Devon to offer a great Autumn themed workshop for kids and families!
Come and join us for a fun filled workshop, kids will be able to complete two different crafts and will be able to take their wonderful makes home with them.
We regularly hire the hall out for celebrations, classes, courses, meetings, wakes and all sorts of other events so please feel free to fill in the booking form below or get in touch if you have any enquiries, we would be happy to meet and show you around.
There are a number of different spaces available for hire, on the ground floor we have our main hall which is our largest, bright and airy room, there are plenty of tables and chairs if needed and there is also a serving hatch through to the kitchen. The kitchen is suitable for making drinks, washing up and is well stocked to serve premade food from. The ground floor also has ladies, gents and disbaled toilets as well as baby changing facilities and there is a lift up to the first floor.
Upstairs we have two cosier meeting rooms which are carpeted and have tables/chairs available for use as needed. We do also have a television and projector which can be made available for use during your hire, just let us know about your requirements and we'll do our best to meet them.
We'd love to hear from you!
