A mystery vandal has been tampering with and blocking the main door locks of the Hollingbourne Village Hall and this has now happened three times. Every time that happens the main door has to be partially dismantled in order that it can be opened. Village Hall Chairman John Holley has asked for hall users and local residents to be vigilant and to report any suspicious activity.
The Village Hall was originally built in 1968 on land that was leased from the owners of the Windmill Public House. The last 20 year lease expired in August 2016 and negotiations are under way with the present owners, Enterprise Inns PLC for a renewal.
Many local organisations and others use the Village Hall which is a major community asset. At the present time the Hall is being used for rehearsals for the Hollingbourne Annual Pantomime of The Pied Piper of Hamlin. Tickets are available from Christopher’s Village Shop in Eyhorne Street and the show runs from 8th February to 11th February.
Pictured below is the poster for the show which is the 39th production by the Hollingbourne Pantomime Group.
