Following a fund raising campaign spearheaded by the Village Society the new pavilion was opened in May 2007 due in part to a grant obtained from DEFRA under its 'Rural Development Programme'. A new lease was granted by the National Trust to the Village Society for the use of the pavilion and cricket ground for a further 50 years.

The building has showers and toilets, a fully-fitted kitchen, a generator and comes with a marquee, tables and chairs. It is available for private hire for cricket and stool-ball, children's parties, wedding receptions, nature days for schools and any group who wish to make use of this great facility in an idyllic setting. This is a perfect location why not pay us a visit and see for yourself.

The pavilion can be hired by the half-day (3 hours morning or afternoon) or longer, the half-day rate is £40, other prices available on request. All hirers are required to sign a contract and must be over 25 years of age. A refundable damages deposit will be charged.  For large events it is essential that portable toilets are acquired. Please contact Becky Hopper on 01306 711754.

24 hour take-away hiring charges (included in the rate if you hire the pavilion but items can not be removed). The hirer is responsible for collection, return and insurance, a £100 - £500 returnable deposit will be charged.

Portable Generator £50
Marquee £50
Large Table (10 available) £1 each
Chair (30 available) £0.50 each
