Fontmell Magna Village Hall

Posted in

The Village Hall is a purpose-built single storey building with a tiled roof that was completed in 1997.  There is a large grassed area for outside events (suitable for marquees) as well as an under 12's play area.  There is also an all weather tennis court available for hire by the hour.

The Village Hall is Covid Secure and can offer Superfast Full Fibre Broadband for free with Hire.  There is also a newly installed hearing loop.

We are currently offering a special rate for hirers looking for a quiet space to work if struggling to work from home or to make Zoom calls if looking for a reliable broadband connection.

The hall is also large enough to hold socially distanced work meetings.
