The Hall was left in Trust to the Village of Ickwell by Colonel G H Wells in 1957, and is managed by a group of volunteers representing the different organisations in Ickwell. The Hall has been the daily home of Ickwell Pre-School for many years, but it is also used regularly by Northill Parish Council, Keep Fit classes, Yoga and the Peregrine Recorder Group.
The Hall consists of a large main Hall, approx. 4m by 11.5m (46 sq.m.) with its own separate disabled access. There is also a smaller entrance Hall, approx. 5m by 8.5 m (42.5 sq.m.) (Link to Plan of Hall) Both halls feed into a kitchen area which is equipped with a cooker, refrigerator, kettle, and sink with hot water heater. Crockery, cutlery and glassware are available, at no extra cost to the hirer. There are 10 standard sized tables available, plus 2 larger ones, with sufficient chairs for each, again at no extra cost.
Toilet facilities are available for Gents and Ladies , but we regret that there are no separate facilities for the Disabled.
Funded by a Grassroots Grant from the Bedfordshire and Luton Community Foundation, each room is now heated by several Dimplex convector heaters, protected by fireguards. Instructions with regard to their use are displayed in the Hall, but it is planned to run these by pre-set controls. Please do not interfere with the controls, if they have been pre-set. This will be clarified at the time of booking.
Persons hiring the Hall are required to remove all their rubbish in their own refuse bags. Tea cloths and dishcloths are also not provided, nor are towels in the toilets. The Hall will be clear and clean for the Hirer, and should be left in the same condition on completion of hire. The Hirer will be held liable for any damage caused during the Hire. (Link to Conditions of Hire)
Persons wishing to hire the Hall should contact the Caretaker, Mr Peter Bygraves on 01767 627747 or by calling at the Caretakerís Cottage, attached to the South side of the Hall [ to the Right of the Entrance]
Directions The Hall is situated on the East side of Ickwell Green , at the junction with Caldecote Road.
