The Hall is run by the Parish Council's Community Hall Management Committee and is managed on a day to day basis by Parish Clerk and Hall Manager, Mrs Sandra Peartree.
The Community Hall is situated in Pinewood between the Baptist Church at Shepherd Drive and the Shopping Centre in Laburnum Close.
The Hall is open for private hire either via a regular club or activity or for a one-off party or celebration. Hiring of the hall is open to all but if you live in Pinewood or Sprites Ward in Ipswich then you will benefit from reduced hiring charges.
The facility offers:- A main hall which will accommodate 190 seated (theatre style) and approx. 170 seated with tables and chairs and a stage. The newly extended Lounge/Bar seats approx. 60 - 80 people. There is a fully equip kitchen which includes crockery, cutlery, oven, microwave and refrigerator and facitlites for making tea and coffee. There are baby change facilities and a large disabled toilet. When hiring the main hall on a Saturday/Sunday evening for birthday celebrations/wedding receptions etc.,a fully staffed bar is available at no extra cost if your adult numbers exceed 50 although this will be by prior arrangement and at the discretion of the Hall Manager as Designated Premises Supervisor within licensed hours. Please note that there is a minimum hire of four hours for this type of event. There will be a small charge for the bar included in hirings for a Saturday/Sunday afternoon event. For weekday hires a fully staffed bar may be available for a small charge, but this is by prior arrangement with the Hall Manager. Our Bar prices are competitive!
We will set up the main hall for your event with stage (if required), tables and chairs leaving you to just decorate tables with cloths/table decorations, balloons and banners etc., - saving you valuable hiring time.
At the end of your party/event we just ask you to remove your decorations and bag up any left over food, we then clean and put away the furniture and clean the Hall after your event for you as part of the hire.
The lounge bar is available for meetings and selected other events when not is use as a bar.
The use of the kitchen if offered for the duration of your hire is shared with other hirers of the Hall and staff.
