EXCITING NEW DEVELOPMENTS UNDERWAY AT WORPLESDON MEMORIAL HALL!

 

Building work is now underway to extend and re-equip the kitchen, to build new external toilets with ambulant disabled facilities and to put in place a new internal chair store. The project is expected to complete by the end of October 2017.

During the building work the Hall will operate essentially as normal, albeit with a temporary kitchen and alternative arrangements for those who wish to hire the conference room. For full details of what is planned, please see the letter that has been sent to our existing regular users.

The Trustees are pleased to acknowledge the financial support from Surrey County Council, Guildford Borough Council and Worplesdon Parish Council that has made this project possible.


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.

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.
