Church Lench Village Hall

On 7 April 1933, a plot of land was conveyed to the community of Church Lench by Archibald Powell of Church Farm for the sum of £5.   The community was defined as the Parish of Church Lench and its immediate vicinity and was represented by a group of some fourteen residents who agreed to act as a Council of Management.   The use of the land and its subsequent development was for physical and mental recreation, and for social and moral and intellectual development for the benefit of the community.

The first Village Hall built on the land stood until 2006 when it was knocked down and building commenced on the new building we have now.   Today the hall is used for social and recreational purposes, together with meetings of committees and use as a voting station for local and national elections.  


Our users include several weekly exercise classes, Lenches Pre-School, South Lenches Parish Council, Lenches Tennis Club, All Saints Parish Church, and the Greater Lenches Amateur Dramatic Society (GLADS).  It is available to hire by both regular users and for those wishing to host one-off events.
