Latest News on the Village Hall Refurbishment

Dear all

Refurbishment of the Village Hall is complete and is fully functional.  It now serves the community as a meeting place for all kinds of activities and its situation in the village of Sydling St Nicholas which is in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty makes it ideal for weddings and other special events.  It is also a great venue for Children’s  parties – plenty of space to run around and, when the weather is fine, a large grassed area outside.   The Village Hall Website will soon be up and running which will help showcase the premises and make bookings easier.

Please be aware that there has been a spate of Dog thefts in the area. Apparently a dog was found abandoned near Wardon Hill. The thieves are only interested in the bitches for breeding purposes and any male dogs are left abandoned.
Also, a white transit van been seen in several locations in the village, appearing to act suspiciously.  Might be perfectly innocent (and there are a lot of them about!) but please be vigilant and report any unusual activity to the police.
If you think something is not quite right,  a message out on The Sydling Informer would not go amiss either.
