Table top sale – 10th June

We’ll be starting a new table top sale at the village hall soon so this is a chance to sell items, grab some bargains or perhaps get rid of clutter.

The first sale will start on Saturday 10th June, 10am to 1pm and then the first Saturday of the month thereafter.

For details please speak to Paul or Milton at the hall, any weekday morning until 2pm.

Christmas fundraising update

The Christmas period was a busy one for events. The Christmas Countdown evening event was a massive success and raised £261.40. Many thanks to everyone who supported the event and to the nursery for providing all of the entertainment!

The village lights switch on raised a further £88.90 and we have received generous donations of £200 from Wilsden Walkers, £500 from Wilsden Gardening Association, £500 from Wilsden Community Library and a further £1000 donation from an anonymous donor. A huge thank you to everyone!

All money raised will go towards our 40 Candles refurbishment appeal.




Help needed for Evening Christmas Event on 30th November

The village hall and nursery are currently planning to put on a Christmas event on the evening of the 30th November to raise some money for the 40 Candles Appeal.

This will include ideas such as a live nativity, lantern procession and stalls/games. For more information see here.

For this we need help from hall user groups and locals. Please contact us if you can help in the organisation or just on the day.


Marathon effort from Helen for her village hall

Helen is supporting the village hall

Thanks so much to wonderful village hall supporter Helen Baranowski for pushing herself to the peak of physical endurance in order to raise funds for our village hall! You’re a hero, Helen! Here’s what she has to say about her marathon effort:

“I am raising money for The Village Hall 40 Candles Appeal by running the Leicester Marathon on Sunday (23 October). If you would like to sponsor me there are sponsorship forms at the Village Hall, the Library, Krave and the Butchers or I have a page on Just Giving (not sure how to attach a link!). Every sponsor will be very gratefully received and will go towards much needed renovation of the Village Hall, and really will inspire me to keep running (well moving forward anyway). Thank you very much.”

You can donate to Helen’s marathon fundraiser on JustGiving here.

A massive thank you to all the other groups who sent cards and wished me


My eighteen years at the hall have been an experience I would not wish to

change.It has been full of laughter, challenges and many learning curves .

From the day to day problems, to running Gala’s, Beer Festivals and even

funerals. Life at the hall has been anything but dull.

I will miss the regular groups and people who just pop in.

Thank you to all my Staff, Claire and Roger you’re unfailing support and belief

in me made the difficult moments bearable. To the Managment Committee,

thank you for your support and trust in me.

Lastly my family and friends who gave help, support and faith.

Thank you.

I am sure I now leave the hall in the capable hands of our a growing

managment committee and the capable hands of Mr Mark Driver.

I wish you all the best, and again thank you for the kindness shown and lovely

gifts and cards .

Love Julie.
