Welcome to Charlton Marshall Village Hall
Information on the hall is on this site including Community Events (Film Nights), fundraising events (find under New Hall Tab), VH Newsletters, Minutes of Meetings, history etc.
The hall is a registered charity and is run by a committee of volunteers. At present a considerable amount of time and effort is being put in to raising funds for the building of a new, modern hall for which the plans have already been passed.
Car parking for 20 cars is currently available on the site and the hall has a stage and small kitchen facilities. There is a wide range of regular users including youth groups, fitness activities, dog group and bowls club. The hall is also used for a number of varied functions including meetings, childrens birthday parties and dance rehearsals etc.

CHARLTON MARSHALL NEW VILLAGE HALL PROJECT
BIG LOTTERY GRANT – AMAZING NEWS!!!
The management committee would like to inform the community they have received a letter of congratulations from Big Lottery Reaching Communities Buildings on the success of their application for a grant of £500,000 to build a new village hall – subject to the remaining funding being found. This is amazing news!
It has taken two years to complete the 3 stages of the application. The support, guidance and help from Dorset Community Action has been paramount in our success and we can’t thank them enough. Now we have confirmation of the grant, applications to other funders can now be submitted. We had to wait for confirmation from Big Lottery before submission as all funders have a timescale of when the money has to be used – these range from 6 months to 2 years – so everything has to tie in together.
We have £210,850 to find from other funders so we are not secure yet! We need to continue to fund raise as every penny counts. Please support the events as they arise. We have the Buy a Brick scheme, which has raised over £6,000, and if you would like to buy one please see downloadable form on the website. We are open to accept donations of any amount and if you pay tax we can get gift aid which helps to boost funds too.
So a very big THANK YOU to everyone who has supported all fund raising events, bought a brick or just donated, it’s very much appreciated. We now have to wait for responses from the other funders, which should be early next year, and if successful the building of the new hall could start in Spring 2018. We will keep you informed of progress as we receive news.
