Managing the hall

The hall is is a registered charity [No. 214816] and managed by a voluntary board of trustees. The board meet regularly and representatives of user groups are welcome to submit concerns, information and questions about the running of the hall to Trustees at any time and attend meetings if necessary.

As stated in the trust’s charitable deed, the main activities of the charity continue to be the provision and maintenance of facilities for the community of Areley Kings in Worcestershire. This specifically includes the care of the community’s village hall building and the provision of services in that building.

The current hall was opened in 2004, replacing the original Parish Room.

Building the new hall

When the original Parish Room was beyond reasonable repair, a group of volunteers stepped forward to raise money and lead the process of building a new hall for the village of Areley Kings. Proceeds from the sale of land on which the original building stood, fundraising by the community, a large grant from the National Lottery and other smaller grants raised over £600,000. The new hall was relocated to land next to the village’s recreation ground and opened to the public in 2004
