Ingram Village Hall reopening update during lockdown
The UK Government’s latest step in the easing of lockdown takes effect today *Saturday 4 July 2020). This means that, in principle, village halls can reopen. However, there are numerous considerations before any village hall can be used again safely.
Further to the UK Government’s recommendations regarding the current coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic, Ingram Village Hall will be CLOSED until further notice. This is effective immediately.

Fireworks fun at Ingram Village
Following the failure of the Gunpowder Plot in 1605, King James I introduced the ‘Observance of 5th November Act’, an enforced annual public day of thanksgiving. Despite being repealed in 1859, the celebration has continued with enthusiasm throughout the UK. So last night – exactly 414 years after the failed plot – Ingram Village celebrated in its own community-centred style at Ingram Village Hall.

INGRAM VILLAGE HALL was opened in 1928 to serve as a Church Hall and a local community facility. It is a registered charity, organized and managed by a volunteer committee whose aim is to maximize the use of the Hall for social, recreational and educational functions. Apart from a few improvements and repairs over the years the building remained in its original state until 2010, following the village’s selection to join British Gas Green Streets project.
