Fransham Village Hall is a traditional village hall in the hamlet of Great Fransham servicing the villages of Great and Little Fransham. It has a small but very dedicated team of committee members made up of all ages from across the villages. The Village Hall relies solely on fundraising to pay for upkeep, improvements and presentation. We are lucky to have an enthusiastic community that support the fundraising suppers, bingo nights and events as well as the main money earner, the annual Summer Fete.
BOOKINGS AND HIRE
Please keep booking the Hall for functions, parties and meetings. Also, remember there is a small marquee, chairs, tables and crockery – all available for hire to villagers. Please call Gerry Taylor on 01362 687720.
Many thanks to all who support the events, and give their time to making them happen – in between family, kids, work, businesses and farming we manage to keep the Hall up, running and the centre for our Village. Well done!
