Village Hall

The Vilage Hall Management Committee (VHMC), the Management Trustees, look after the day to day running of the Village Hall. The VHMC is made up of villagers who are members of user groups such as the Church, Badminton Club, Thruppsters, Table Tennis Club, Women’s Institute (WI), Parish Council, School and School Governors or people interested in the village and village hall issues. The VHMC committee comprises the following:

Philip Dickens
(Chairman)
Mike Barber
(Hon. Secretary)
Jenny Sturt
(Treasurer)
Jenny Dellar
(Booking Clerk)
Richard Smart Peter Doran Nicola Fountain Judith Wood
Shirley Luck Phil Crowe Christy Nolan Jane Whitehouse
All bookings must be made through Jenny Dellar who can be contacted at 12, Banbury Lane or on 01604 831929 at reasonable times after 6pm. All bookings made by a bona fide villager are entitled to a 50% discount. To discuss particular needs please ring Mike Barber on 01604 831710 or call round to 9 Berry Close in the evenings or weekends. If you hire the hall or any part of it and intend to sell alcohol at a function then you will need a temporary events notice (TEN) and you will have to apply to South Northants Council at Towcester. SNC make a charge for this and it takes several days to be granted. A TEN also applies to some other entertainments or the sale of hot food at certain times of the evening so it is best to check with the Booking Clerk when making the booking.
