Othery village hall is a registered charity and is managed by a committee of nominated and elected villagers.The villagers of Othery started fundraising for a Village Hall in the 1930s when much money was raised the first building purchased di not get planning permission so was sold by the Trustees until an appropriate site was found. The site was found and more fundraising took place resulting in the opening of the current Hall in 1972. Many Villagers worked on this project. The hall next had a makeover several years ago where it received an Awards for All National Lottery Grant, donations from The Parish council and Viridor. The kitchen ,toilet areas and storage facilities were improved and updated. We also have increased our chair storage area giving room for 160 padded chairs and extra small tables.We have achieved hallmarks 1,2 and 3 for excellence in Village Hall management for the last three times they each last for three years and welcome suggestions of new improvements. We aim to have an Othery Village Archive in the hall and will be developing this idea.
