The Argles Memorial Hall plays a very important part in village life and its surrounding areas. The Hall committee consists of representatives from each village organisation, together with co-opted members.

In 2002/03 the Hall was granted a substantial sum of money from the Lottery Fund to make major structural alterations to the Hall and to refurbish it throughout. These renovations have made a considerable difference as it gained a large store room, appropriately named the "Wilson Store", a smaller meeting room, and new wash room facilities.

The Hall charges are kept to a minimum and to offset the running costs fund raising events are held throughout the year. The two major fund raising events are the Jumble Sale usually raising in the region of £900 - £1000 and the talent evening £500 - £700. Large or small events are always well attended.

Anyone wishing to book the hall can do so by contacting Kath Edwards on (015395) 68879 or email:
