Oxborough Village Hall was built in 1976 following fund raising from the villagers, and that fund raising still continues today.
In 2020 alone the committee have fund-raised £7,533 (in addition to £7,500 of existing VH funds) to create a brand new kitchen to replace the original 1976 kitchen. Following a competitive tendering process they offered the kitchen contract to Jake Stansfield an Oxborough resident. A range of other Oxborough residents also pledged or donated approx £750 for smaller items the kitchen required such as kettles, pots and pans, trays and a Village Breakfast earlier this year raised £400.
There are regular events which are shown on the village hall notice board. These events will also be published here on the events page.
The village hall committee is made up of people from a wide range of backgrounds who all have a willingness to maintain the hall as a clean and attractive place for a wide range of activities, plus maintain the car park and the garden. They often work unsocial hours, organise events such as the monthly quiz and the annual BBQ and support village initiatives such as the Village Breakfast and the new CafeOx. Many other activities take place on a regular basis.
As they were unable to do much in lockdown, everyone on the committee and a number of other villagers redecorated the main hall from top to bottom, and had fantastic new flexible lighting installed. New blinds were made, and a general tidy up done. Before that they fenced off the garden to make it safer, installed planters and a herb garden at the front, and had a new sign installed at the front of the hall. They have also spent much time Covid proofing the hall to ensure safe practices and events can take place such as yoga, aerobics, the dog club and the new CafeOx which were all active until the second lockdown commenced this week.
