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 2020 we were awarded a fantastic grant from the National Lottery.  That, together with generous grants from the Barbour Foundation. Barley Hill Foundation and the Sir James Knott Trust meant we could start  Phase 1 of the refurbishment. Work started on 1st June as lock down started to ease.  

September 2020:The face lift is now almost complete and we are open for business!!!!

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 tirelessly 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.
The thermometer reached £70,000 in spring 2020 which meant we were able to complete Phase 1 of the refurbishment.

The fund thermometer will be "re-started" in September when we launch Phase 2.

   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 - September 2020 update

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 in 2020 urgently needs more work to secure its future and make it fit for the challenges ahead. 

Funding for Phase 1 of the new refurbishment plans were secured by a combination of generous donations, grants and plain old fashioned fund-raising. This has enabled us to fit new toilets, better storage and new central heating boiler.  No more carrying tables up and down stairs, unreliable drains and chilly rooms!

We are now back to the start regarding funding and will be looking to attract further grants, donations and new fundraising ideas, so that we can undertake Phase 2 of our project. This will involve a new annex to the east side of the Hall which can be of modular design so that it can be used for a range of  community and business needs.

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.
