Parish Hall

The Parish Hall is available to rent to any parishioner. The terms and conditions of rental are attached below and all booking should be made through the Clerk of the Council.

The hall was opened in 1893 for ‘the use of the Vicar of Henlow’ and was therefore known as ‘The Vicars’ Clubroom’. It was then a meeting place for the men of the Village but has continued to play an important part in the life of the whole Village for over 100 years.

The hall was bought by the Parish Council for the nominal sum of £5 in the 1950’s and re- opened in 1962 following alterations, which gave the present layout.
With its distinctive clock-tower, the hall is a well-known feature in the centre of the village.

It is well-used and can be hired through the Clerk for clubs and private functions. There is a kitchen, meeting room or bar area, disabled toilet facilities and a small car park at the rear off Park Lane.
