Elvington Village Hall

The Hall is situated in the centre of the village, at the end of the village green on the junction of Main Street and Church Lane.

The building was constructed in 1858, originally as the village school. It became the Village Hall in 1969 and was extensively altered in 1972.

The Hall was severely affected by the flooding in the village in 2000, necessitating thorough refurbishment during the following twelve months. The cost of this was £80,000. About £60,000 came through insurance cover, with the balance being paid from Village Hall funds and various local fund raising activities.

As a result of this programme, the Village Hall boasts excellent facilities and amenities for hirers and their guests.

The Village Hall is a registered charity and is administered by local volunteers through the Village Hall Committee, who also arrange various fund raising activities to improve the finances of the hall which were severely depleted as a result of the flooding.

The Hall needs the active support of villagers both for events that take place there and for the fund raising activities that are arranged to support it.
