At the heart of Mellor, the village hall provides high quality and affordable, social and sports facilities for local communities.

The facility has various rooms suitable for meetings or study groups with one room next to the kitchen ideal for meetings if lunch is required.

The main hall is large enough to hold various events from village shows to dances or evenings of entertainment as well as various sports from taekwondo to badminton. 

To book the hall contact Janine on 07561 538314

We held an OPEN DAY on saturday the 4th February 2017 and the proposed  improvements to the hall and facilities were presented. The first phase development we hope to complete in 2017 comprises a new entrance at the emergency exit to the main hall. The second phase is a new extension at the front of the Village Hall and hopefully will be for completion in 2018.

The Scheme designs are on the Notice Board in the Village Hall for those who wish to look at them. Planning Permission for  these improvements/extensions for the hall has been granted by the Ribble Valley Borough Council.

Good news we have received a Grant from RVBC Recreation and Culture to buy equipment for both short tennis and pickle ball equipment for the village Hall. The equipment has now been ordered from the Pickleball Association UK and they were able to give a demonstration on Tuesday 9th May between 11.00am and 1.00pm .

We are hoping to run weekly sessions on friday between 2-4 pm

Just come along and have ago it is for everybody.

 

Pickle ball was invented in America in 1963 and is now the fastest growing sport particularly in Florida USA. The game involves players using “paddles” to hit a plastic ball over a net similar to tennis but an inch or so higher. The court layout is similar to tennis but smaller.
The game is family orientated however more active players can take up the game if they wish. The game can be played inside on a badminton court as well as outside on a tennis court.
