The village hall is primarily for use by Islanders and leased to visitors from the mainland to help cover our annual running costs.
Our new user-friendly building is accessible from street level by wheelchair or electric buggy. Once inside there are no internal sills and there is a
buggy accessible lavatory which includes a baby changing table and shower.
