An Active Village Hall

“An active village hall can greatly improve the life of the community”. – Shropshire rural county council 

The Lyon Hall
2011 was quite a busy year at the Lyon Hall. The smaller rooms were the most popular during the daytime but the large room was booked most evenings and some weekends.
We had WI meetings, Scouts and guides events including a ceilidh and the cheese and wine event in October was very successful, raising over £700 for the maintenance of the building.
Table top sale
The table top sale in December needed more support (spread the word for next year) but there were plenty of bacon butties sold to raise a profit.
The large room at the Lyon Hall is an excellent space for larger gatherings and is regularly used for practise by a competitive ball room dancing couple.
Making bacon butties
A Dog Showing enthusiasts group also use the large room to teach the dogs and owners showing and ring skills.
Hodnet and district Garden Club is an active and long running club which meets at the Lyon Hall every third Tuesday in the month. It held its popular Annual show at the hall, in August. To visit their website and learn more click here.
Slimming world meetings helped us lose weight and eat healthily while Zumba classes kept us fit and athletic. The quiz evenings exercised our brains and had the added bonus of £20 as first prize.
Maintenance and repairs.
We have undertaken some repairs to the roof tiles and guttering and repaired the fence posts around the path. The handrail at the disabled entrance has been repaired and we are currently replacing the oil tank which was vandalised in November. We will also be improving the security to prevent this happening again.
The upkeep of the hall is an ongoing project and the committee are keen to maintain and improve the facilities available to its users. We greatly value your opinions so if you have any suggestions for the halls  improvement please contact us at the Lyon Hall  email Our web site is currently being updated but can be viewed here
