Simpson Village Hall
The Hall is currently closed and not accepting bookings, we will update the site in the event of any change. It is usually available for hire for groups, parties, dancing, get-togethers, clubs and many other activities. See below for more detailed information. If you are interested in hiring the hall, please email the bookings clerk via firstname.lastname@example.org for information.
Space and facilities
The main part of the hall is a rectangular space 11.5 metres by 5.9 metres. Most of the hall is 2.7 metres high, tapering to 2.4 metres at the walls. To one side is a kitchen with a fridge, large electric cooker, small microwave, electric kettle and urn. The sink has a double draining board. A serving hatch opens on to the main area of the hall. There are ample three-pin electric sockets throughout the hall.
The front of the hall is close to the road and the door is reached by steps or a ramp which gives access for wheelchairs and pushchairs. Off the entrance foyer are toilets, including one suitable for wheelchair users. There is a wall-mounted baby changing unit in the disabled toilet.
Tables and chairs are stored in the two rooms to the right of the serving hatch. Eight large tables measure 182 x 69 cms and five smaller ones measure 122 x 69 cms. There are 2 child-size tables. There are three styles of adult seats and 12 child-size plastic seats.
The kitchen has crockery and cutlery for general use. There are approximately: 70 coffee mugs; 60 wine glasses; 25 high-ball glasses; 20 medium-sized plates; 100+ tea plates; a good number of knives, forks and spoons.
Numbers and events
The hall can accommodate up to about 60 people, depending on the type of event. Unfortunately we are unable to accommodate teenage parties.
Access to Broadband via wi-fi is available in the hall, free of charge.
There is a small car park to the side of the hall which can accommodate about six vehicles; those parked closest to the road have to leave first in order for the other vehicles to get out.
As the hall is in the middle of a residential area there are limited opportunities for on-street parking. However, there are two free car parks on the edge of the Linear Park which are within a few minutes’ walk of the hall. Vehicles may be left there at the owners’ discretion. Postcode for sat nav is MK6 3AD.
The Parish Council has recently instructed a local Architect to carry out a feasibility study looking into the possible improvements that could be made to the Village Hall.
We are keen to hear residents views on the future of the Village Hall and the variety of plans as shown above. Please come along to the next meeting of the Parish Council on Monday 2nd August at 8pm at the Village Hall to discuss this further or alternatively email the clerk at email@example.com
