One of Lavenham Community Councils main goals for the new Village Hall was to establish a centre for community activities, multiple different age groups and local organisations. Now, 9 years on, the Hall is used for over a dozen different clubs every week of the year; ranging from badminton to bowls, from tai chi to table tennis.
If you have an idea for an activities group, would like to help out with one of our societies, or are currently organising an interest group near Lavenham, then get in touch with us at the office on 01787 248599, or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to see if we can help out. Our facilities and availability can be found on this website, and any further information can be found through the Village Hall manager and their team of volunteer office staff.
