History

A short history

The original Hall building was the Church of England Primary School. In 1973 whilst the Headmaster, Mr. Gordon Young, was on a year’s course the school was closed by the then Rutland Education Authority. It subsequently took the Church Commissioners five years to decide what to do with the building, but they agreed that in that period the village could make use of the premises. A decision was taken by the village to form a Community Centre Committee and this was led by Peter Beaver as Chairman. Gloria Whight as Secretary (Dennis Whight later took over this post) and Ambler Tillotson as Treasurer.
