Since then the hall has been used for children’s holiday clubs, Spaghetti Club (an after school club with food and craft), a community cafe, and most recently a ‘Sweet Treat’ event (a safe alternative to halloween). The hall has also been used for community meetings and has been hired out for some private bookings.
