Trunch Village Hall was built as a parish hall in 1912 on Glebe land but was settled as village property sometime after the First World War. It was used by the military in both world wars. In 1969, the parish hall was conveyed into the ownership of the village community through the auspices of the Diocese and the Parish Council. It has since been administered by a management committee of trustees who are elected annually from the village community and representatives of organisations and clubs that use the hall. Trunch Village Hall became a registered charity in 1988.
The Hall has benefitted greatly from the support of residents, past and present, who have worked tirelessly to preserve and cherish it for generations to come. A wide variety of classes and events take place every week. These are listed on the Regular Events page of this website, as well as in the Trunch Mardle and on the noticeboard outside the Hall. It also forms the hub for village events such as the Open Gardens and Scarecrows Day, jumble sales, Christmas fayres and other celebrations.
Hiring of the Hall for private functions is also welcomed.

Coffee mornings are held in the Village Hall between 10am and 12 noon on the second Friday of each month. Free refills of tea and coffee, plus a choice of homemade cakes. Meet in the warm with friends, and make new friends. Raffle and sales of books and DVDs.

Games afternoons are held in the hall from 2pm to 4pm on the third Thursday of each month.

Transport can be arranged. Please contact Sandra Farmer on 07970 805961.
