Swallowcliffe Village Hall

The need for a village hall was realised many years ago and the first village hall, an old Army hut from Fovant, was erected in 1934. During the 2nd World War money was being raised in Swallowcliffe for its replacement after the war. However, in 1949 the Army hut was accidentally burnt down. There followed a period of some years devoted to fund raising for rebuilding. In 1957 work was started on the village hall as we know it today and there was a grand opening. Much expense and voluntary work has gone into maintenance since then and the village owes a debt of gratitude to all those who have been responsible for its building and maintenance from 1934 onwards.

To quote from our constitution... the objects and uses of the hall, for purposes of mental and physical training and recreation. Social, moral and intellectual development by means of reading, lectures classes, recreations and entertainment or otherwise as may be found expedient for the benefit of the inhabitants of Swallowcliffe and of its immediate neighbourhood without distinction of sex or political and religious opinions.
