- Away from the Main Hall at the west side of the building, the Vine Room provides a more intimate environment with boardroom style table and chairs for up to 15 people.
- A fully equipped kitchen is centrally situated with direct serving access to the northwest corner of the main hall – a large range cooker, extensive cupboards containing kitchen equipment, crockery and cutlery for up to 120 place settings plus industrial dishwasher, refrigerator, microwave, double deep catering sinks and lots of worktop area. There are also kettles and a selection of useful cooking pots and serving dishes.

Village Hall Refurbishment Plans
Exciting plans are currently being developed to give the Hall a major face-lift. Keep up to date as the project develops.
Wisborough Green Village Hall 50 Club
In 2016, the Management Committee started ‘The Wisborough Green Village Hall 50 Club’, a monthly draw club with cash prizes for the lucky winners. There are currently over 64 members (more always welcome!).
For £4 per month (or an annual payment of £48), each member gets 2 numbers which are entered into the monthly draw. There are two prizes each month – a £50 first prize (increased to £75 each quarter month) and a second prize of £20. In addition, there is a Grand Christmas Bonus Draw with a Prize of £500 for those who have been members for at least 6 months leading up to this draw.
The Committee has determined that with more members the prize pool will be increased. During the last year, the club has paid out more than £1200 in prize money. The Village Hall keeps approximately 50% of the money raised to put towards capital expenditure.
The promoter of the WG Village Hall 50 Club is Ruth Andrews who will be delighted to hear from prospective members on 01403 700671.
