Village Hall

Our Village Hall began life as the village school. It is next to the Church in the centre of the village and has an adjacent parking area.
The hall has one large room and one small meeting room, both newly decorated, together with a fully equipped kitchen, toilets and free Wi-Fi. It is large enough for parties, yet small enough to be cosy for just a few.
The Hall is administered by local volunteers through the Village Hall committee, who also arrange fund raising activities. More helpers are always welcomed.  Contact us if you would like to volunteer.

– Award

We are very pleased to announce that Seaton Ross Village Hall has attained Hallmark 2.  Hallmark is a quality standard for Village Halls and accreditation shows that our hall is being run professionally.
Many thanks go to all of you who continue to support our Village hall.

– Hire of the Hall

The hall is a real asset to Seaton Ross, having been recently refurbished, redecorated and with a newly boosted heating system. It sits in the middle of the village with a small car park and roadside parking. The hall can cater for a variety of needs, from small formal meetings to larger seated events.
It can be used for a range of activities. It is a great venue for kids clubs, birthday parties, anniversary celebrations, wedding receptions and funeral occasions. It is ideal for local clubs and special interest groups such as the Art Group and the Ladies Group. It is suitable for indoor recreation – there is currently Pilates, Indoor Bowls and Yoga.
We can also cater for small business use, whether that be training, presentations, conferences or client entertaining.
We offer a large hall, a small room, a fully equipped modern kitchen, and wifi, projector and screen, and disabled access.
We currently only charge £9 an hour, the cheapest rate in the area.

Last year many of you paid your subscription via bank transfer which is extremely helpful, and we thank you for that.  We did note that some had problems when entering the details for the bank transfer.  The following points will hopefully help to make Bank Transfer easier.    
These points will also be relevant for Standing Orders as well as Bank Transfers.
  1. The full account name is Seaton Ross Village Hall Committee, but Seaton Ross VHC, or Seaton Ross Village Hall may
  2. The account is a community account (for charities), which is treated as a business account.
  3. We need the ticket number/s to link the payment to the right person, as we have several similar names. When setting up the standing order or bank transfer you will need to include your ticket numbers in the Reference section on your bank transfer details.  As there are limited number of characters you can use in the reference section please use the following example:  150 20 22.  Thank you.
