Walesby Village Hall, Otby Lane, Walesby, Lincolnshire, LN8 3UT

Walesby Village Hall was built in 1988, replacing an ex-army wooden hut.  Its position in the centre of the village helps to provide a focal point for the community.  The adjacent small car park has information about local walks making it a popular meeting point for ramblers using the Viking way which runs through the village.

During recent years an improvement programme has included the installation of gas fired central heating, double glazing, and kitchen and bar refurbishment.  Disabled access has been improved and a fully fitted disabled toilet has been installed which also includes baby changing facilities.

Walesby Village Hall is a registered charity aiming “To maintain the hall for the use and benefit of all residents of the parish and also available for hire by people living in neighbouring parishes”.

The village hall committee organise a number of events to raise funds and promote an active social life within the community.  These include themed evenings such as an Irish Night, Italian Night, Burns Supper and Quizes.  They also host a group of amateur dramatic enthusiasts who usually produce an annual show.  In recent years, performances based on popular comedies have become important fundraisers for the hall.  There is also a 100 Club (£12 per annum) with a monthly draw for prizes.

The Walesby Club hires the hall and opens the bar for members and their guests every Tuesday and Saturday evening.  Other principal hirers of the hall are The Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust – Market Rasen Area Group; Walesby Society; All Saints Ramblers Church – AGM; St Mary’s Church events; Walesby Parish Council; a weekly Pilates class.
