Oare Village Hall Open Day - Saturday 16th March

open day

The newly refurbished Oare Village Hall is holding a community open day on Saturday 16th March.

The Hall will be open between 10am and 2pm and you are invited to come for tea, coffee and cake and see for yourself the wonderful new kitchen and catering facilities, alongside other recent enhancements. The inside and outside of the Hall have also been repainted and the roofing repaired.

All the work has been funded through a combination of grants, donations and the kind generosity of local residents.

Perfect for parties, meetings, exercise classes and other social functions, Oare Village Hall is also used by the local Mothers and Toddlers group and is our parish polling station at election time. We are keen to attract new users to this flexible and welcoming venue.

Come along and see what the Hall has to offer and learn more about our plans for further improvements and future events. Complimentary tea, coffee and cakes will be served and there will be a free raffle - with the winner receiving a free half-day hire of the Hall (worth 60).

More details of the Hall refurbishment project can be found at For Hall bookings and other enquiries, please contact Caroline Coryndon on 01672 563247 or via

Oare Village Hall Refurbishment Project

A major programme of enhancements to bring the Hall into the 21st century

Now that Oare has lost its pub, the Village Hall is the only remaining centre where people can meet and take part in village and community activities. Each year the Oare Village Hall Committee organises as many different events as possible, whether held in the Hall or elsewhere a plant and produce sale, the Easter trail, our summer show, food nights from around the world and carols at Christmas.

The Hall is also used by a range of organisations Farming Club, Oare Mothers and Toddlers, as a venue for yoga and dance classes, and as a meeting place for the Parish Council, among others. It is also our local Polling Station.

Oare Village Hall is showing its age originally built in the 1970s, it was extended in the mid-1990s, but has had virtually no major work done to it since then. Although we have maintained the fabric of the building, it is in urgent need of an upgrade.

The Hall eats money huge electricity bills, high insurance premiums, the need to pay for waste collections, and health and safety requirements. If we are to survive, we need to reduce some of these outgoings, as well as making the space much more user-friendly and attractive to users.

Remembrance Service - Sunday 11th November

To mark the centenary of the ending of the First World War, there was a large congregation attending the Remembrance Service at Holy Trinity, Oare.

The collection at this service is always donated to the Royal British Legion, and this year we are sending the sum of 400.

A big thank you to all those who so generously contributed.
