TONGHAM VILLAGE HALL
IMPORTANT NOTICE - COVID-19
The Tongham Village Hall Management Committee would like to advise that, following the removal of Government restrictions, the hall will continue to be open on a limited basis. The hall is now open to regular hirers who have completed the necessary COVID-19 risk assessment and induction.
We have decided however that we will not be taking any ad-hoc bookings and this will enable us to continue with COVID-19 cleaning measures that are necessary to ensure a safe environment for users.
We would like to assure all hirers that the management committee continues to monitor the current advices from Government and other sector advisory bodies and will amend our operating status in line with the advices we receive.
Thank you for your co-operation and support with this matter.
Please contact our secretary Lisa McMahon (contact details below) if you have any questions.
Keep safe and well

AT A GLANCE
The Village Hall was built in 1897 for the benefit of the residents of Tongham to commemorate Queen Victoria’s Diamond Jubilee. The building was put into a charitable trust to be used for the benefit of the inhabitants of Tongham, their visitors and friends for use in engaging in physical activities or for social, moral, cultural or literary purposes.
There are two foundation stones: the first was laid by H M Chester on 25th December 1897 on behalf of subscribers and donors and the second by the vicar the Rev H M Harke on behalf of the trustees and the building committee.
It was officially opened on the 26th of May 1898 by Lord Lieutenant Viscount Middleton.
Since then the Hall has been the home of various sports, cultural and social gatherings such as the Tongham Women’s Institute, and the Tongham Olde Time Dance Club, which met at the hall for over fifty years. A Badminton club used to meet regularly for several decades, as did a Boxing Club. Now our activities include Yoga, Tai Chi, Dance, Puppy Training, Table Tennis, Art Classes and children's parties.
Why not schedule your group’s meetings at Tongham Village Hall at an affordable price, and become part of Tongham history, too?
