What’s Happening

Rennington village hall

Watch this space! – we are getting ready to open!

We are currently working within government guidelines to bring the hall back into use safely.

Our annual scarecrow weekend will not be taking place for the second year running, so we need some new ideas for the hall to be used for the enjoyment and benefit of all in our community.

We will soon be announcing a date for our postponed agm and we look forward to inviting interest from old and new residents to help us plan a programme of film nights, social events and other activities.

Please see the attached sheet for contact details of our existing user groups – most are hoping to return as soon as possible, so do get in touch if you wish to continue or join as a new member.

Do you have an interest or idea for something new?

Would you like to be added to our circulation emails for updates and information?

Rennington is a small, picturesque village about 4 miles northeast of Alnwick and about 4 miles from the beautiful Northumberland coast.  It has expanded a little in recent years and now comprises about 60 houses, All Saints Church, The Horseshoes pub and the Village Hall. Rennington is also the home of a popular annual Scarecrow Festival, which is now in its twentieth year, and which takes place over the three days of the August Bank holiday weekend. The Village Hall is held as a charitable trust for the benefit of local residents living in the small rural communities of Rennington, Rock and Stamford.

The Village Hall was formerly the village school.  It is a traditional stone-built school which opened in 1894 to replace the old school (now a private dwelling) for 60 children and was expanded 10 years later to accommodate 120 pupils but as farming and schooling practices changed numbers fell and it closed as a school in 1982 with just 6 pupils and was adapted to become The Village Hall in the mid 1980’s.

 

“The property hereby demised shall be held upon trust for the purposes of a village hall for the use of the inhabitants of the Parish of Rock and Rennington in the County of Northumberland.”

The Lease of the Village Hall Dated 21st March 1984


 Situated in the centre of the village overlooking the Village Green, the Hall is fully accessible (ramp or steps).  The Hall is centrally heated and has a Main Hall which can be used for larger events, classes, concerts etc and a smaller room suitable for smaller gatherings, use as a bar or as an extension of the main hall.  There is a kitchen (equipped with range cooker, dishwasher, good working space and with a good supply of crockery, cutlery and glasses) and toilets, including disabled facilities

There is no formal car park but there is ample space for parking on the Village Green which is directly outside. The Hall is just a short walk from The Horseshoes pub and the Village Church.  

The Hall is in an attractive, peaceful village setting and provides a wonderful venue for functions such as small wedding receptions, parties, children’s birthdays, concerts, training events, fitness and educational classes.
