Walford Village Hall Open Day

Walford Village Hall open day

The trustees of Walford Village Hall extend a very special invite to our Open Day from 11am to 2pm, on Saturday, March 23.

The event, celebrating village halls week, will see our groups and societies meet to showcase their work, including the fantastic Walford Scouts, Wyeplay – soft play sessions for children, Ring Craft, and the Royal British Legion.

In addition, visitors can get to know the Walford Community Support Scheme (WCSS) Hub, a place where members of the scheme can meet up for coffee mornings and much more.

Come and enjoy a cup of tea and a piece of cake and get to know the groups and take a tour around our hall, which has benefited from significant investment in new toilets and other refurbishments in a spacious, warm environment, which is becoming increasingly popular to hire for parties.

It’s a perfect occasion to socialize, appreciate the local amenities, and strengthen bonds within the neighbourhood. Don’t miss this chance to discover the charm of Walford Village Hall and get involved in your community.

We hope to see you on the day for a cuppa, a piece of cake and a great networking session. If you would like to get involved on the day, please e-mail us at hello@walfordvillagehall.co.uk we’d love to hear from you!

Friday 9th February 2024 – 6.30pm-8pm

Are you tired of spending a fortune on seeds every planting season? Or are you looking for a way to diversify your garden without breaking the bank? Look no further because the upcoming Seed Swap event at Walford Village Hall is just what you need!

The Seed Swap event allows gardeners and plant enthusiasts to come together to exchange seeds, knowledge, and ideas. This event is not only a great way to save money on seeds, but it also promotes sustainable gardening practices.

The concept of seed swapping is simple – bring your extra seeds, trade them for other seeds, and go home with a diverse collection of seeds for your garden. It’s a win-win situation for everyone involved. Not only do you get to try out new varieties of plants, but you also get to connect with other like-minded individuals in your community. Entry is free and refreshments are available for a contribution to the Howle Hill Memorial fund. More information on the project is available here: Howle Hill Memorial Project – Walford Parish Council

So, mark your calendars for the Seed Swap and join us in celebrating sustainability and community. Let’s come together to create a more resilient and sustainable future, one seed at a time. See you there!
