A potted history

The first village hall was built on land donated by Mr Heygate, a Slapton resident. It cost £500 to build and was opened in 1925. Prior to this, meetings to discuss village affairs were held in the Old Assembly Rooms in Sands Road (now a private house).

The first users of the Hall included a Men’s Club, social, a Women’s Club and a Library ‘cupboard’. By 1926 there was also a Badminton Club, Boys Club, WI and Mother’s Union.

The original green corrugated iron hall hall served the village for many years, albeit with such drawbacks as frozen pipes, a leaking roof, creaking beams and, when easterly wind conditions prevailed,  the whole building seemed to sway! Hence, there was always the thought  “we must have a new hall!”

The ‘new’ Village Hall was opened in 1994, following seven years of dedicated planning and fundraising. Everyone felt very proud of the lovely new hall with its sprung beech floor, double glazing and heating to banish the freezing winter evenings of the past!

The hall is a busy and well-used facility hosting a variety of community groups including a Bowls Club, Badminton, Pickleball, Table Tennis and Qigong. Larger events include the Village Fete, Horticultural Show and Pantomime. The Parish Council meetings take place in the hall and there is also a weekly Post Office facility. In addition, the hall hosts private functions and wedding parties.
