Read on here for a
more general view of the hall within the Lee & Lincombe community.
The original Hall is
a splendid structure, built in 1923 as a memorial to those in the village who
served their country during the First World War – many making the ultimate
sacrifice. It is a lovely stone built building that blends very well into the
beautiful valley in which the village is situated. It is in a conservation area
within the North Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. It is opposite the
delightful parish church of St Matthew. Adjacent to the Hall is a
privately-owned car park which is sufficient for the needs of most occasions
when the Hall is used.
As well as the Hall,
the Trustees own the large adjacent meadow which was left to the village by a
benefactor a number of years ago. The meadow is also a delightful place where
anyone can relax and enjoy the beauty of the area. There is a small but well
used children’s play area. The meadow is used for events such as the Spring
Fayre and, subject to conditions, can be used to erect a marquee.
The Hall is used
extensively by village organisations. Regular users include the Parent and
Toddler Group (the Mini-Monsters!), Lee Women’s Institute, St Matthew’s Church,
the Fuchsia Valley Quilters, the Residents’ Association and the Flower Show. The
Hall Committee organises regular social events as well as days when light
lunches and cream teas are served. Highlights of the year include the Spring
Fayre and the Arts and Crafts Fair, held in May and August respectively each
As well as use for
village organisations and events, the Hall welcomes bookings from individuals.
Charges are very modest. The Hall is a favourite location for children’s parties
and wedding receptions, and the broadband and presentation facilities make it
ideal for small business conferences or similar gatherings. The maximum capacity
of the Hall is 75 for a seated function. (See the website for full details)
