Pauntley Village Hall dates from 1949, when Thomas Scott and John Millard conveyed land in Brand Green to the trustees for the hall.  It has provided a focal point for events in the parish since that date and in 2008, Pauntley Parish Council was elected Sole Trustee of the hall.  The Parish Council has overall responsibility for the hall but the Village Hall Committee is responsible for its day-to-day running and for the organisation of events.

Pauntley Village Hall is a charity registered with the Charity Commission (Charity Number 301598) and each year our annual accounts are submitted to them and can be viewed on their website by clicking here.

The Parish Council obtained grants in 2009 to enable the hall to be externally insulated and re-roofed and, along with the Village Hall Committee, continues to work on its internal refurbishment.  We have recently completed work on the toilets, with new non-slip flooring also being laid in the toilets and lobby.

Many regular events are held at the hall, including film evenings, quiz evenings, barbecues, skittles matches and Pilates sessions. A new session has also started for 0-4 year olds, Pauntley Play, every Tuesday morning.  Please see our Events page for details.  Newent Rangers also use our hall for their regular meetings and it has been accredited by the Guides Association as a camping venue.

As well as hosting a number of social events for the community, the hall is available for private functions at very reasonable rates and we welcome weekly bookings for yoga or fitness classes.  A large car park is available and there is a wonderful view from the hall and grounds, across the parish to the Malvern Hills, making it an ideal venue for wedding receptions and christening parties.  The large, secure grassed area to the rear of the hall is safe for children to play on, and a barbecue and garden furniture are provided for summer parties.  There is also room here to erect a marquee for extra space for larger functions.

We are fortunate to have a fast fibre broadband connection at the hall.  As part of their continued commitment to empowering rural communities, Gigaclear’s Community Hub Scheme has kindly provided our fast fibre broadband connection free of charge, including a free broadband service for the first year.  This has benefitted hall users including the parish council who meet at the hall, Guiding and Scouting groups who use the hall for meetings and camping, and classes such as Pilates where participants are able to join via Zoom.  We are very grateful to Gigaclear for supporting our village hall and enabling us to extend its use by the community.  If you are planning an event which would benefit from a good broadband connection please get in touch with us and come to visit the hall.
We are now taking laptops and tablets to our Friday coffee mornings for those who do not have an internet connection atr home or, as for many houses in Pauntley, have a really poor signal.  We have this January been helping people access comparison sites such as Uswitch to look for cheaper electricity tariffs, a hot topic at the moment with prices increasing yet again.
