Welborne Village Hall

We established Welborne Village Hall as charity over ten years ago and, from the beginning, we have seen our role as being to use the village hall to develop and sustain our small community of around 150 people. We have worked hard to involve and engage people from Welborne and our surrounding villages by delivering cultural and arts events as well as the more traditional community events.

Founded 1999

  • Mission statement

    Welborne Village Hall (and, indeed, Welborne village) has a deserved reputation as an active, innovative and successful organisation. We significantly ‘punch above our weight’ and like to think we a role model for a village hall in a rural community.

    Welborne is a very small spread-out village in rural Norfolk with a population of about 150. There is no pub, no shop, no school, and no public transport. The only community assets are the church and the village hall.

    Welborne Village Hall was established as a charity in 1999. From the beginning we were determined that the village hall would become the centre of the community. As well as developing and maintaining the building, we work hard to involve and engage people from Welborne and our surrounding villages by delivering cultural and arts events as well as the more traditional community events.

    The quality of events taking place in the village hall, as well as the number of events, ensures we meet the objectives of the Welborne Village Hall charity. Several of our events have become established fixtures.

    From the beginning, we have seen our role as being to use the village hall to develop and sustain our very small community. We are ambitious, with our objectives including:

    • putting on adventurous, educational and cultural events as part of sustaining and developing our rural community
    • celebrating Welborne as a community and a place to live
    • developing our community by increasing the sense of incl
