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 comprised a new entrance at the emergency exit to the main hall. The second phase represent improvements to the main Hall with a new floor and underfloor heating and a new extension at the entrance to the hall. 

Applications for funding to the National Lottery and the local LEF fund have been made as of Feb 2017. Unfortunately, the Lottery bid was unsucessful and the major works to the Main Hall have been put on hold until funding can be secured.  

Happily funding has been granted from the LEF to enable us to proceed with improvements to the bottom entrance to bring the Village Hall up to present day Disabled Access and Public Health legislation together with cosmetic improvements. 
Work is to be put out to tender in October 2017 with intention to start the alterations mid January 2018.

Design drawings of the proposals can be seen in the Village Hall on the Notice Board.
