Horncliffe Memorial was completed in September 1957 after the original village hall was destroyed by fire. The Hall is aiming to become an eco Hall, has had solar panels for many years now, we have installed a new lighting system using only LED lights and are replacing any remaining existing lights with LED bulbs. We use environmentally friendly cleaning products which are made by a resident of the village (Eileen’s Nuts) and the coffee is from a small local producer (Northern Edge Coffee). For large events vegware glasses will be used, which can be composted and break down within 3 months. We may only be a small village but our ethos is: every little helps.
The Memorial Hall, which is licensed to sell alcohol, provides a light, spacious venue for any event, holding a maximum of 100 people and available to hire for £8 per hour. The kitchen is equipped with a double electric oven, with grill and four ring hob. There is also a separate 4 ring ceramic hob, combi microwave, catering standard dishwasher and large warming cupboard. The kitchen also has crockery and cutlery for 100 covers, which is included in the rental price, but also available for separate rental.
A conservatory was added in 2012 which provides extra seating for up to 16 people and can be hired separately, @£5 per hour, from the Hall for smaller meetings.
Other facilities include: Tables and chairs; Carpark; Disabled access from carpark; Toilet facilities (gents, ladies and disabled). In 2021 we added a bar, kindly built by the engineers working on the restoration of the Union Chain Bridge, using parts of original Chain bridge. The bar, with staff, is available for hire. Please see “Hire” page for more details.
