Working Towards a Better Tomorrow
Strumpshaw village community has survived since the early 1900's with the Parish Room as the only hall available to parishioners.
Although the Parish Room has served the community well, it has now reached the end of its life and the new Community Hall is welcomed as a valuable asset.
The new hall is centrally located in Mill Road and has parking adjacent to the hall.
Behind the Scenes
Strumpshaw Community Hall was created as a result of the 2014 Strumpshaw Neighbourhood Plan. The land-owner, Crabtree Living Ltd., gave the site for the Community Hall and allotments to the Parish Council as part of a planning agreement for the houses on Mill Meadow. Crabtree Living Ltd. built most of the Community Hall at their expense. The Parish Council completed the planned building and then furnished and equipped it.
