Kegworth Village Hall is a large community building situated near the Tennis Courts and King George V playing fields off Nottingham Road with its own car parking area.
The Hall is managed by a committee of volunteers who take responsibility for the day to day running, maintenance and repair of the Hall. The building itself is expensive to run and maintain and relies on three main sources of income to survive - grants are received yearly from various sources including the ever-generous Kegworth parish Council, income is generated from the letting of the building and the committee also holds fund-raising events.
The Hall is a valuable and well used village amenity providing a variety of different activities both during the day and in the evenings. The building offers users a large hall with stage, kitchen facilities, two large meeting rooms, a bar area and toilets. These can be hired as one unit or separately.
A variety of groups meet on a weekly basis such as Judo, Karate and Tai-chi clubs. Others use the hall on occasions for special events such as dog shows or blood donor sessions.
The Hall holds a current local authority licence and has regular Fire and Health and Safety checks in order to comply with changes in legislation. Emergency lighting and fire alarm systems have been installed. Kegworth Players stage several events a year in the hall and many village residents celebrate special occasions there.
The committee meet once a month to discuss the running of the hall and to plan future maintenance. All of the members have been involved for a number of years and new blood would be very welcome. The main fund-raising event organised and run by the committee and other willing volunteers is the Auction held annually on the first Saturday in October. This event is hard work but enjoyable and gives villagers a chance to sell their unwanted goods, (and usually buy someone else's!), and help raise funds to support the Village Hall.
Bookings can be made on a Saturday morning between 10 and 11 when a committee member is available to complete the necessary paper work and show hirers around the building.
