The Eaton and Hulme Walfield Parish Hall has been closed due to the coronavirus pandemic. With the continuing changing situation, we have opened for just a few activities. If you are interested in using the hall, please get in touch and we will see if we can accommodate you, but be aware that we may need to say no.
The Hall was the original stable block of Eaton Vicarage. The Vicarage is now long gone but we are left with an excellent facility for the use of the church and community. The drive to the hall is at the side of the churchyard, where you will find excellent parking.
The newly-refurbished Hall is available for bookings.
Usual facilities in the hall:
Main Hall for up to 100 people
Kitchen facility for serving food
Large outdoor area
Suitable for meetings, children’s parties and many other events (but not noisy events such as discos)
Irene Goodwin looks after the bookings. Irene can be contacted by telephone on 01260 224203 or you can e-mail [email protected]
