Farndale Village Hall

The overall objectives of Farndale Village Hall are to provide a central venue for the benefit of the residents of Farndale; a community facility where people can get together for social, recreational and educational activities, and where local groups meet and run events and other activities.

Our Village Hall is used by the whole community, for various social activities, as well as for meetings and a central venue. It is also used by a number of other small groups for their activities and meetings.

The Village Hall is located in Church Houses, one of three tiny hamlets in the dale.  Farndale is a large upland valley in the midst of the North Yorkshire Moors – a rural and remote area with no shops or other facilities locally.

Our new Village Hall was rebuilt with the generous support of The Big Lottery and other funders, and completed in 2019.  We are really pleased with our new Hall – it is light and airy, slightly larger than our old hall, but we think retains some of the feeling of the old building. It is wood-panelled, painted a warm cream, and has lots of natural sunlight.

Over the first year of use, we have run a busy timetable of activities, activities and other bookings. We had been pleased to welcome back the user groups who had used the old Hall, and also started some new activities and groups. We have had weekly yoga classes, mindfulness sessions, a new community pool team have been using the Hall, we started games nights and have run some educational courses for our community.

We’ve also worked with a charity in Malton, Next Steps, who have been running some outreach craft sessions at the Hall which have proved very popular.
