St Norberts Community Hall

Our Community Hall is situated within our church complex, but has its own separate entrance to the far right of the building. It is used by many parish groups for social, educational and spiritual activities.

It is home to a number of groups and organisations within the locality and we have been pleased to host a number of conferences and day seminars for the local authorities.

We endeavour to constantly update the facilities. We now offer a full cold buffet catering service that can be adapted to your personal requirements. We can supply a projector and screen for power-point presentations. We have installed portable staging and, most recently, we are now fully licenced to offer full bar facilities for your functions – offering a large range of beers, wines and spirits.

A short video of the hall and facilities available can be seen here. This is a large file (16mb) so depending on your internet connection this may take a while to download.

We welcome enquiries from potential users and we invite you to contact our Centre Manager, Betty McDonald — Tel. 01775 722056. Alternatively use our online booking form and we will contact you.
