More about the Dersingham Village Centre and Village Hall

The Village Centre is situated in the 'heart' of Dersingham, close to St Nicholas Church and the Carole Brown Health Centre. It is on the site of and incorporates part of the former Church Hall, which has been extended and refurbished to create a flexible community space. The construction of the new building was a Dersingham Parish Council project, but now the Centre is leased, at a peppercorn rent, to the Dersingham Village Centre Association. Through constant fundraising and run entirely by volunteers, the DVCA has equipped the Centre with furniture, kitchen items etc, and it undertakes the day to day running of the venue.

Key features are:

  • Central Hub area, accessible from all rooms. It seats 24 in café style and is ideal as a meet and greet space.
  • Large main hall plus two meeting rooms, any of which can be hired separately or together.
  • Fully equipped kitchen
  • Fully accessible facilities throughout
  • Stackable chairs and folding tables support a variety of uses
  • Free wi-fi throughout the building
  • Flexible booking system
  • Fully licensed
  • Car parking on site

Fundraising

Although much of the cost of the new Village Centre has been met by grants from a variety of sources, including the Big Lottery, the Dersingham Village Centre Association are still raising funds to equip the new hall with all the essentials of a modern community building. You can help, by joining our Village Centre Lottery or, of course, you can just make a donation. Whichever way you choose, your generosity is much appreciated and will enhance the experience of all the eventual users of the Village Centre.
