About the Hall

Following the closure of Ickleton Church School in 1960, the school building was purchased and donated to the village, thus becoming the first Ickleton Village Hall.  Much of the refurbishment of the old building was carried out on a voluntary basis by local people and as the one-time alma mater of so many, became a much loved institution.  Size and layout constraints limited its use and consequently the funds needed to maintain it.  The decision was taken by the village in 1992 to build anew hall and with help from Sports England, the Foundation for Sports and the Arts, South Cambridgeshire District Council and Ickleton Parish Council, the new purpose built hall was opened in  November 1999.

Committee Members

The Village Hall is managed by a committee acting as trustees under the auspices of the Charity Commission. Elected members are:

Pam Fearn (Chairman)
Jocelyn Flitton (Minutes Secretary)
Roy Smith (Treasurer)

Village organisations and user groups can each nominate one representative.  In addition, the committee has the power to co-opt up to three additional members.
