Sand Hutton & Claxton Village Hall


Sand Hutton, York, YO41 1LL

To see the upcoming events taking place at the Village Hall click HERE It’s yours to use!

Our Village Hall was gifted to the 2 villages by the Church Commissioners after they had acquired the estate from the Walker family. It had originally been the laundry room of Sand Hutton Hall, more details of which can be seen on the Heritage Group Pages Here.

The Village Hall supports the community by providing facilities for local groups and individuals. It is the main place in the parish where we can meet others socially – it’s our community centre and provides space for :

  • Meetings – Parish Council meetings are open to all
  • Social events – coffee mornings, lunch club, private parties
  • Activities – bowls, gardening club, choir, W.I., heritage group
  • Village events – annual produce show, Christmas party or show
  • Community Library – Books and DVD’s
  • Snappy aluminium recycling bin

To keep the building viable and well maintained, income is required to pay the bills.  The Hall is a registered charity whose trustees act as a Management Committee.  They raise funds through hiring out the hall for private events and by organising events

Sponsorship, donations and ideas for fund raising are always welcome.

Management Committee members:  John Short (chair), Philip Orton (secretary), Sarah Sykes (treasurer), Anne White & Fiona Davies (booking team), Caroline Hall, Trish Russell, Linda Spaven.
