About the Village Hall
The Hall was built and opened in 1977, and is located to the south side of the village recreation park. The large hall with wooden floor, large windows offering good lighting is served by a good kitchen area for food and refreshment preparation including a large cooker and fridge facility. The Hall can accommodate meetings up to 100 people or 70- 80 seated at tables (tables and chairs are available). To one end of the Hall there is a small stage area that can be used for speakers or chairing larger meetings. Please enquire for further details. External areas to the Village Hall include:
Outside the Hall is a large grassed area (property of the Longford Parish Council) which can accommodate for large village events.
Longford Football Club regularly play matches here.
Alongside the green space is a small toddler play play area, a separate basketball area and benches around the park.
There is a hardstanding parking area for a limited number of cars.
Did you know that the Village Hall is the local Polling Station and is the local Place of Safety in the event of a local emergency such as the floods of 2007.
The old Village Hall was also used as a Coroner's Court in 1949 to investigate a drowning in the River Severn in 1949.
