Mitford Village Hall was originally made up of two ex-military wooden huts, standing on brick plinths known as ‘The Hut’ or ‘The Television Hut’. The name arises from the fact it was in this building that the first television set in the village was installed, to watch the Coronation of Her Majesty the Queen in 1953. In the 1980s the smaller of the wooden huts was removed and rebuilt in brick, creating a meeting room along with a kitchen and toilets. An initial programme of refurbishment occurred in 2009 and a further comprehensive update was completed in 2021.
You will find the hall light, friendly and inviting. There is an air-conditioning system to ensure comfort both in winter and summer and new flooring throughout. The hall also has a new kitchen area as well as modern toilet facilities. There is car parking and the hall is accessible; there is also some green open space as well as a safe children’s play area. Many local clubs and societies, as well as the Parish Council, make use of it on a weekly or monthly basis and it’s also the location for the Christmas Fair and various charity coffee mornings.
