Tarset Village Hall is located at Lanehead, a small hamlet at the southern end of Tarset near the junction of the roads to Greenhaugh, Bellingham, Falstone and Donkleywood.
The hall is managed by a community committee and is funded through hall charges, hall fundraising events, running the bar, the 100 club and grants. It is also the location of a community garden and an emergency defibrillator.
News from the Hall – October 2019:
In order to make reporting faults, breakages, unexpected events (!), etc. easier for our users, the Village Hall has installed a ‘Repairs Book’ which can be found on the stage at the Village Hall. If you notice anything that is missing, not working/broken, or have any suggestions for things which you might find useful at the hall, please could you jot them down in the book along with the date and who you are (so we can get more details if needed) - and we hope this will make dealing with any issues a more effective process.
We would also like to let our users know about a slight change to our charging structure. Our full list of charges can be found on the following page: https://www.tarset.co.uk/community/roomhire.cfm
Because of rising utilities costs, and the fact that we have not raised our charges for some number of years now, we have been forced to amend the charges for use of the kitchen, and are no longer able to offer a discretionary charge for use of the kitchen. However, we have endeavoured to keep the rate as low as possible for regular and charitable users of the hall. We have tried to keep the increase in charges as user-friendly as possible and charging for the kitchen in this way means that the charges are increased in line with what things cost the hall the most, and enable us to keep our hourly hire charges as low as possible while ensuring the hall does not make a loss on its bookings.
The village hall is a central part of the community and is currently used by the following groups and events:
There are also many events, parties, talks, meetings and celebrations organised from time-to-time at the village hall.
