Situated at the centre of the main street, the Village Hall is a fantastic building to see. It was built in 1938 by the then leading village family, the Constantines - so 2013 was the hall's 75 Anniversary. It is worth a visit just to look around! In the last 10 years the villagers have raised funds and grants to refit the kitchen with modern facilities, completely modernise the toilet area including disabled facilities and baby changing, refurbish the rooms backstage and renew the very fine wooden floors. The next project will be to install new play equipment. This is the main centre for village activities. The Hall is run by a Management Committee who organise regular activities for social and fundraising purposes. See under Booking Information for a leaflet about the hall or to download a Booking Form. The newly refurbished Mowbray Room (formerly the Snooker Room and Bar) was formally opened by Aytor Karanka, Manager of Middlesbrough FC and East Harlsey resident, after the Village Hall Annual Meeting on Thursday 9 March. A crowd of about 50 local people enjoyed drinks and refreshments. See some pictures on the Home page of this website.
The Hall can also be hired by the general public or by business organisations. Potential customers are encouraged to come and talk to us about their needs or get in touch via e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org It is ideal for business meetings, social and charity functions, private parties, children’s entertainment, drama performances and private hirings such as birthdays, retirements and a host of other activities. With three halls, a Bar and a large outside area, this hall offers many opportunities.
This is proving very popular as a Wedding Venue where you can choose your own decor, formal or informal dining, a marquee on outside space and make it your own special place. A fully stocked Bar (extended in 2017) can be provided to complete the arrangement. Look at the pages of Pictures and Special Occasions for more ideas for using the space.
The Village Hall Committee meets once a month to manage the hall's activities and maintenance.
The current members are as follows but new volunteers are always welcome either to join the committee or just to help at various events.
Richard Martin (Chairman), Vacant (Secretary), Paul Buckingham (Treasurer), Marion Archer, Syd Bailey, Mike Smith, Paul Sanderson, Leah Wilson, Gill Selby, David Sharpe, Salli Dunwell, Ian Hodgson, Rob Harris and Cat Lane.
