Our Story

Othery village hall is a registered charity and is managed by a committee of nominated and elected villagers, who are supported by a team of volunteers. The villagers of Othery started fundraising for a Village Hall in the 1930s. The first building purchased did not get planning permission so was sold by the Trustees. When an appropriate site was found, more fundraising took place resulting in the opening of the current Hall in 1972. Many Villagers worked on this project. After receiving an Awards for All National Lottery Grant, donations from The Parish council and Viridor, the hall had a makeover and facilities (such as the kitchen and toilets) were updated a few years ago.

Over the years many villagers have given up their time to contribute to the management of Othery Village Hall. If you are interested in getting involved please contact Chairman Stephen Richards-Bond on 07846444003. The current committee members and volunteers are as follows:
