What’s going on at The lckenham Village Hall?
Our Ickenham Village Hall is nearly 100 years old. It was built for “The Proper Development of Social Life in lckenham” at the cost of £1,800 in 1926.
The voluntary management committee have long realised that toilet facilities in The Hall are inadequate for the 21st Century. We therefore sought, and obtained, planning permission to build new facilities at the front of The Hall. Grants for some of the not insignificant cost have been obtained and work needed to start to secure this funding.
A while ago we launched a “Buy a Brick” fundraiser to raise the estimated £30,000 shortfall to complete the project. Locals responded to this request with many pledges so far, but the sale of a few more “bricks” at £1,000 each will secure the detailed finish we all seek. These donations will be acknowledged on a plaque in the new larger entrance foyer.
All donations, whether by buying a “Brick” or smaller amounts are needed. Please contact The Village Hall Committee or me at email@example.com or 01895 672783 if you feel you can help in any way.
The Hall will remain in operation during the work, but with access down the right-hand side, (also to be used for access to The Home Guard Club.)The build is anticipated to last until mid-August, after which we hope lckenham will delight in the new facilities.
NOW, WHERE WERE WE?
Welcome to The Ickenham Village Hall website and thank you for visiting us.
The Village Hall is self-funding and run by a small committee of local volunteers. It was built by a public subscription in 1926 to provide “a permanent place for local people to participate in social activities.”
Many different groups hire the hall for regular activities but it is also available for ‘one off’ bookings as well.
Measuring 50ft x 28ft (15m x 9m approx.), the main hall also has supporting facilities consisting of a large stage, changing rooms, piano, public address systems, lighting systems, kitchen etc. – all available to hire for a modest hourly rate. Click to download details (.pdf).
