“I feel we are very fortunate living in Ash as there are many opportunities for people to get involved, make friends, learn new skills and be a part of the community we live in.
I hope you find something that interests you.”
Pauline Baxter, a local Ash volunteer
Tongham Village Hall
The village hall was built in 1897 for the benefit of the residents to commemorate Queen Victoria’s diamond jubilee. The building was put into a charitable trust to be used for the benefit of the inhabitants of Tongham, their visitors and friends for use in engaging in physical activities or for social, moral, cultural or literary purposes.
There are two foundation stones: the first was laid by H M Chester on December 25, 1897, on behalf of subscribers and donors and the second by the Rev’d H M Harke on behalf of the trustees and the building committee.
It was officially opened on May 26,1898, by Lord Lieutenant Viscount Middleton.
Since then the hall has been the home of various sports, cultural and social gatherings such as the Tongham Women’s Institute, and the Tongham Olde Time Dance Club, which met at the hall for over 50 years. A badminton club has been meeting here on Monday nights for several decades, and we now have a boxing group three times a week.
Why not schedule your group’s meetings at Tongham Village Hall at an affordable price, and become part of Tongham history, too?
