Outside lighting has been made more user-friendly with the installation of a time-switch to control the lights.

Hiring rates:


LITTLE YELDHAM VILLAGE HALL is available for hire @ £7.50 per hour to local residents and/or organisations (£11.00 Min hire charge); Commercial hire and party rates - please contact for quotation. Facilities include padded chairs, small and large tables, kitchen with electric cooker and microwaves. Audio/Visual equipment (not kept on premises) available for hire to approved hirers; includes projector, screen and audio equipment. Furniture for outside use available for hire.


The new Club-room, named the John Gardiner room, is now available for hire as a meeting room or similar, suitable for up to 20 people. Hire rate is £10 for the first session of 2 hours, and £5 per hour after that. The room has it's own sink; tea/coffee-making facilities and toilets which will soon have their refurbishment completed. John Gardiner is our President, and a long-time supporter of the Village Hall and we thought it right that the room should be dedicated to him.


It should be made clear that the Parish Council plays no part in management of the Village Hall; it has it's own management trustees who are elected every May at their AGM.
