The Village Hall lies to the east of All Saints Church.

It is built on land donated by Lady Aurea Macleod and her brother Geoffrey Howard in 1931 as their contribution to the local fund being raised for it. Building commenced in October of that year by Frank Lumley, the village builder, with joinery work being carried out by Cecil Stanley. The work cost £1,112 with about £700 being raised from fetes and other activities with the remainder coming from a grant from the Carnegie United Kingdom Trust. A Charitable trust was set up in 1936 to administer the hall.

The cost of running and repairing the Village Hall is funded from hire charges and from various activities organized by the Village Hall Committee. Improvement works are paid from Hall funds supplemented by various grants that are available from the local authority and other organizations. In recent years these improvements have included a new roof, central heating, disabled toilet, disabled access, new curtains, re-rendering  of external brickwork and new guttering. The kitchen was completely renewed in the Spring of 2011.

The year 2011 saw the 80th anniversary of the Village Hall’s opening. This was marked with a number of events, most notably an evening of folk music and entertainment.

Tuesday 20th November 7.30pm Village Hall Committee Room ( £1 )

Bethany Watrous is an MA Buildings Archaeology student at the University, working with Kate on creating a virtual reconstruction of Slingsby Castle, as it was originally envisaged and designed by the architect Robert Smythson for Charles Cavendish (I), based on analysis of the original drawings held by RIBA and other sites such as Caverswall Castle (Staffordshire) and the actual castle, built by John Smithson for Charles Cavendish (II).

Beth will show us the castle in its landscape context, and reappraise its relationship to High Street and the medieval – and current – village layout and its commanding view across what is now the Sports Field and the Lawns.

We will hope to give a brief update, too, about the geophysical survey carried out by Dr Helen Goodchild of the University of York and Slingsby School in October.
