Ellerdine village hall is managed and run by volunteers from the local community.  The village hall is a registered charity and has no council funding, or other similar funding.  Maintaining and running the village hall hall is reliant only on the income received from bookings and hiring of the hall, and from income that is raised by organising fundraising events ourselves.

We are really keen to maintain that Ellerdine village hall is well used now and remains as a vital asset in our rural community for all local residents, and this can only happen with YOUR support!

Our vision is the provision of an active, warm and welcoming, community facility where people can meet, interact and participate in a wide range of social opportunities.

Our aspiration is to engage with, and be responsive to, the needs of the local and wider community and provide a safe, accessible venue to encourage community cohesion.


Our mission to is to develop the provision of Ellerdine Village hall, playing field and surrounding grounds as a first choice venue and facility for recreational, sporting, social or business opportunities for the benefit of local residents, organisations and businesses.


EVH management committee is made up of a great team of local people who are really enthusiastic to volunteer their time to improve the village hall facilities for residents in Ellerdine and nearby villages (as well as further afield).

Following the AGM in May 2016 the current committee includes:

Michelle Cliff (Chair)

Kevin Connor (Vice Chair)

David Gilham (Treasurer)

vacant (Secretary)

Cheri Williams (Bookings Secretary)

Hilary Cash

Sylvia Goodman

Henry White (Ellerdine Methodist Chapel representative)

Eileen Baylis (Rowton Church PCC representative)

Gillian Cotton (Ellerdine Womens Institute representative)


We are more than happy for new involvement and ideas, and would love to hear what you want, and what you can help with to improve Ellerdine village hall.  We especially need trades people or people with DIY skills, we also need volunteer fundraisers, event helpers, help with promotion and publicity. 

We are in the process of making plans for hall improvements, internally and externally, and need lots of help and fundraising ideas to bring the community together again.

SUMMER 2017


The ALE’rdine beer festival was in its second year and turned out to be another amazing, successful event.  It was very well supported by the local community and a huge sum of money was raised towards the village hall improvements.

Thanks to everyone involved for their help and support.


**************

The annual flower show was a huge success with a large amount of entries and a great turn out of local people to support it.  Huge thanks to Rowton Brewery, Morgans Butchers, Ellerdine WI, all stallholders, Simply magical photography, Leo's Loco circus, Crossbar foundation, Fantasy faces and Bouncy castles, Jake Thorpe and Coppice plants.  Special thanks to all the volunteers, judges and the village hall team for all the hard work, especially to Jackie & Chris Purves, and Deb Mielczarek who have now retired from the Committee and from the flower show organizing team.

**************

Further improvements to the village hall premises took place this Summer, with the installation of 5 pieces of outdoor gym equipment.  This was made possible through proceeds from the section 106 monies from the new housing development adjacent to the field.  It was officially opened at the Flower Show by Councillor Stephen Bentley and Kate Ball (Miss British Isles 2017).

2017

We’d like to thank all that supported us in 2016, as your support has certainly helped us to step into 2017 positively.  In fact, people can now step safely into Ellerdine Village hall as our front entrance and disabled parking improvements took place during the beginning of January, and will help to create a warm and welcoming place for the community to use.

We still have fundraising aims to improve other aspects of the hall and continue to welcome all support possible to help us to achieve them.

2016

WOW, WOW, WOW!

What an absolutely amazing day and evening at the ALE'RDINE beer festival!

The bands and acts we had were amazing and there has been loads of positive feedback from everyone that came along.

Many thanks to all our sponsors and Rowton Brewery for making the event a success.

We have raised a significant amount of money that will go towards improving the village hall facilities. 

We are now looking forward to ALE'RDINE 2017 


2016

As well as all the activities happening this April we are very excited to be organising our first beer festival in June alongside Rowton Brewery – ALE’rdine 2016

It is expected to be a day full of fun and a great opportunity to bring the community together.

Also, look out for the August Flower Show schedules coming out soon so you can start planting this Spring, ready in time for the competitions.

Our first event of 2016 - the Motown night in March was a great success, so thanks to everyone who came along.  Monty Scott had everyone on the dance floor.  The night was made great with the food supplied by the Tiddly that went down a treat and the ale from Rowton Brewery is always a winner! Another similar night is being planned for November!

Our two recent quiz nights have bought over 70 people into Ellerdine Village hall and the two charities we have worked with (Hilbrae Dog Kennels, and Shropshire and Staffordshire Blood bikes) have each benefited with over £150 in fundraising.
