MEMORIAL HALL EXTENSION AND IMPROVEMENT PROGRAMME

Read all about it and have your say!

 

The Trustees have exciting plans for extending the Hall building and improving the facilities offered.

To learn more about what is proposed and to give us your views via a simple online questionnnaire, please see our Community and User Group Consultation pages, which start with a project summary.  Completing the questionnaire will then only take a few minutes and we really would appreciate hearing from you!


If you would like to see the plans in more detail and talk to the Trustees about them, then please come along to the Hall on 18th February (2 to 7.30 pm), when we are putting on a special public consultation display.


Worplesdon Memorial Hall is a popular village hall near Guildford in Surrey.  With its central position in the village, easy access from Guildford and adequate parking, the hall is an ideal venue for all kinds of social activities, public or private, including weddings.

There is a sports ground, including tennis courts and a children's playground, adjacent to the hall.

 

The hall is situated on Perry Hill, part of the main A322 road which runs through Worplesdon village about three miles north of the centre of Guildford.  It is two miles from Worplesdon Station.

The Hall

The main hall is a large room with a stage, suitable for badminton, drama and dance classes as well as meetings, wedding receptions and parties.  An ample stock of chairs and tables is available.  There is a kitchen equipped with a range cooker (new in 2013) and commercial dishwasher (new in 2014), plus a serving area.

There is also a small hall and two further meeting rooms - the conference room and the committee room.  These cater for 10-20 persons with tea/coffee-making facilities and are suitable for small classes or meetings.

All facilities are subject to regular health and safety checks.

There is good access to the hall for the disabled, which is facilitated by the availability of parking next to the hall entrance. The toilets have disabled facilities and the hall has a loop hearing system.

How to Book

Bookings are taken by the caretaker, Mr Bernard Callanan, who lives in the cottage alongside the Hall and is happy to provide any further information on request.  He may be contacted on 01483 232117, by e-mail at worpmemhall@hotmail.com or by post at Memorial Hall Cottage, Perry Hill, Worplesdon, Guildford, Surrey GU3 3RF.

Sidney Sime Gallery

On the first floor of the Hall there is a small gallery devoted to the fascinating and highly characteristic work of Sidney Sime (1865-1941), the famous artist, illustrator and caricaturist.  Sime owned a cottage at Worplesdon and spent much of his time here during the latter part of his life.  For more about Sime, his work and how to visit the gallery, go to www.sidneysimegallery.org.uk.
