Further to the previous news post about the forthcoming (March 24th) screening of A Star is Born, places may now be reserved in advance – see here for details.
Do you wish to raise money for your favourite charity or local community group/project? Liverton Village Hall provides a free slot on the 2nd Saturday of each month for fund-raising Coffee Mornings and Afternoon Teas (they will all be Coffee Mornings once we have met previous booking commitments). If you might like to run such an event (with support/advertising from the hall Committee) for the benefit of your favoured charity/community group, then do get in touch with us via our website contact form. The format usually involves refreshments and cakes – with a raffle (prizes arranged by event organiser). These events have proven increasingly popular and all have so far raised money. First date available in March!

Following the successful test of our new AV equipment, we are pleased to announce that our first public film screening will be at 7pm (prompt!) on March 24th at the Hall: A Star is Born – the latest version staring Lady Gaga, with musical BAFTA and OSCAR awards – NB, this film is Classified 15.
There are no advanced ticket sales for this screening – payment will be on the door (£3 each) on a first-come-first-admitted basis – come early to ensure entry! Doors will open at 6.15pm; refreshments will be available and over-18s are welcome to bring their own alcohol (and take away empties!). We will review the ticketing procedure after this first event.
The new BBQ/Pizza Oven will be launched in a community event at Liverton Village Hall on Thursday 6th September – please see the hall website homepage for all details and to register an interest in coming (so that we can gauge numbers)! We hope to see a good turn out from the local community!
It has come around again: this Saturday sees the next instalment of the Community Coffee Mornings/Afternoon Teas – this time a Coffee Morning on Aug 11th from 10.30am to midday. Please come along and support it, especially if you haven’t been to one before – come and say hello to the organizers and whichever Hall Committee members are there – we are all friendly folk!
If you have a favourite charity for which you would like to raise money by hosting a similar event then come along and see how it works – the first 6 events have raised more than £1,100 for charity!
We hope to see you there!
If you are planning on coming on foot from ‘New Liverton’ to the Hall to cast your vote on Thursday (8th), please be aware that there is a public footpath between ‘Old Liverton’ and ‘New Liverton’ – see below. This is much safer than attempting to walk along Old Liverton Road from Cummings Cross to the Hall, a dangerous stretch of road that has no walkway. Using the safer footpath should add no more than a few minutes to your journey (you come out beside the bottom path entrance to Pottery Yard, with the Hall at the top) – and you will have much nicer views of the countryside!
Our Community Kitchen Enhancement Project was completed during August. This project involved enlargement of the main kitchen hatch (and installation of roller shutters) as well as the purchase of an new 80-piece crockery and cutlery set – with additional mugs and glasses too. The slide-show above displays before-and-after photos of the hatch. This project is part of our drive to increase community use of the hall facilities by making it more attractive for community events. And what good timing: Saturday September 17th sees our first Pop-Up Restaurant, organised by The Seasoned Kitchen!
