MOLLINGTON, BACKFORD & DISTRICT VILLAGE HALL

heading for a new hall

Master Picture

Welcome

Our village hall has been at the centre of community gatherings since it was formally opened by Viscount Leverhulme in 1950. Built on donated land and located centrally within our five villages of Mollington, Lea-by-Backford, Backford, Chorlton and Caughall. For further information about our five villages’ community and what’s on offer, please click on this link https://www.thefivevillages.org.uk

Hire the Hall

Existing Hall

Our main hall (only) is available for hire. Other spaces are occupied by the contractors building the new hall. Room availability can be discovered by checking the Booking Calendar and Booking requests can be made using the Booking Request form. Please note that during the construction phase, parking facilities are limited.

New Five Villages Hall

The community’s new hall is scheduled to be completed and ‘handed over’ towards the end of August 2021. There will be a certain amount ‘dressing’ of the building to complete after handover so it will be likely to be September before new hall hirings can be fulfilled.  However, bookings are being taken already so if you have an event planned, please do get in touch, again by using the Booking Request form.

Whilst you are reading this how does 3 hours free hire of the new hall sound? To be in with a chance to win three hours free, simply go the MBDVH Facebook page; like and comment on the free 3 hours post there and cross your fingers. Result in July.


THE NEW FIVE VILLAGES HALL BUILDING PROJECT

June 2021 Progress

 

June 2021

Our project to replace the old hall (seen on the right of the photo) with a modern, light and versatile facility for both the local community and those further afield is really taking shape now. The new building’s roof and wall cladding phase is due to start followed by the windows and external doors. Once weathertight, the fitting out can start apace.

You can read previous project updates here and this year’s village hall newsletters here.

Some really interesting drone pictures, like the one above, of build progress can be seen here.
