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 year.

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)
