Slaley Commemoration Hall Monthly Lottery

The building of Slaley Commemoration Hall was financed by Charles Samuel & Agnes Mona Hunting of Slaley Hall.  It opened for business in December 1922, since then the people of Slaley Parish have used, repaired and updated the facilities to make it one of the most attractive community buildings in Northumberland.

As we approach the 100th anniversary of its conception we would like to offer you the opportunity to help us achieve our latest improvement goals by taking a number or numbers in our new, monthly, local lottery.

​2020 Vision

Thank you to everyone who has supported the village hall. The donations and fund raising for our refurbishment made a great start with almost £40,000 raised in 2019. In February we were awarded a fantastic grant from the National Lottery.  That, together with generous grants from the Barbour Foundation and the Sir James Knott Trust means we can start  phase 1 of the refurbishment. Work started on 1st June as lock down has started to ease. Please bear with us while we get started with our face lift.

Phase 2 fundraising and events are starting soon - so please look out for some exciting events in the coming months.

2019 also saw the Hall achieve both Hallmark 1 and 2.  These are quality standards for the management and running of the hall and help show that we have good policies and processes in place for anyone wanting to use the hall

The hall doesn't run itself and the committee/trustees work behind the scenes to raise funds, make sure the building is safe and secure and a welcoming place for the community. 

Thank you for your ongoing support and we hope to see new faces in the hall as we introduce new events and activities for everyone to enjoy.


Fund Thermometer, Flag and Banners

If you have passed the Hall recently you will have spotted the banners, flag and fund thermometer.
We have updated the thermometer in February as funds have now reached  £70,000.   Please donate to help ensure the future of Slaley Commemoration Hall.

Please email your picture by the new thermometer total to and we'll add it to our gallery (assuming you are decent of course!!)

More about our £100k for 100 Years Appeal

Slaley Commemoration Hall is looking to the future with its £100K for 100 Years Appeal.

The Hall is one of the finest and best-loved village halls in Northumberland. The hall was renovated extensively in 1980-1, but now urgently needs more work to secure its future and make it fit for the challenges ahead. New toilets are a priority and better storage. There are also some structural problems to solve such as repairs to the iconic lantern that sits proudly on the roof.

Over the years it has hosted an unbelievably wide range of activities and is still the only multi-purpose meeting place in the village, used by lots of groups and clubs and the focus of many social activities – an essential community hub for a sustainable village.

 The Commemoration Hall was a generous gift to the village by Charles and Agnes Mona Hunting of Slaley Hall in gratitude for the safe return of their children from the First World War and opened its doors for the first time in 1922.
