The hall is run by a management committee made up of volunteers from the local community, the centre manager Milton Pearson and deputy manager Paul Westcott. It is entirely self-funded. Running costs are covered through user fees, supplemented by fundraising events and grant applications. Our biggest fundraising event is our annual beer festival, held in late May or early June every year.
Village groups who meet in the hall include uniformed organisations, dance and fitness groups, church groups, art classes and many more. It is also available to hire for special events such as christening and wedding receptions.
Our five-year plan
Our mission statement
We are Wilsden Village Hall, a not-for-profit charitable community centre. We are the hub of our village. We are here to support the residents of Wilsden and its surrounding areas.
It is our objective to provide, without distinction of sex, sexual orientation, age, creed, religious or political opinion, a safe and welcoming environment. We will provide space for educational, recreational, social and physical activities to take place.
Our aim is to deliver affordable space and human resources to support our community groups, with the aim of enhancing their physical and mental wellbeing. We will work to limit social exclusion within our community by supporting both young and old.
We undertake to work in partnership with other community groups and our residents to ensure the centre continues to meet the need of our village.
