Hatley village hall – see photos below – is a clean, pleasant, functional and roomy community facility available for hire every day from 8.30 am to midnight on an hourly basis.
The building and facilities are well maintained – in the last ten years the kitchen, boiler, doors, windows and toilets have all been totally renewed / replaced as part of the continual on-going care and upgrading of the hall.

The hall has been updated many times since it was built (in 1960), most recently with new toilets and, along the front steps, handrails.
- The tables and chairs were renewed in 2014, a new kitchen and boiler were installed in March 2016, new internal doors fitted in 2019 and the fire escape signage renewed in 2020.
- The entire toilet area was completely renewed, replumbed and retiled in spring 2022 – there are now two separate unisex loos and a large ‘wheelchair friendly’ loo (which also houses the baby-changing unit).
The french windows open on to a small garden area – great for barbecues in the summer.
- Hatley village hall is used for parish meetings, the annual village quiz, talks, pop-up pub nights (with a licensed bar) and the Hatley Christmas Shindig – as well as private parties and wedding receptions. It is also the village polling station. A defibrillator, installed in 2019, is by the front entrance.
Hatley Village Association (HVA), on behalf of Hatley Parish Council, organises several events each year to help raise funds to maintain the interior of the hall – our What’s on page details all upcoming events.
