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 to, such as repairs to the iconic lantern that sits proudly on the roof.
Over the years it has hosted a 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.
