In April 1969 a public meeting was held to discuss the possible closure of the small
village school. Unfortunately the closure went ahead and in 1974 the Village Hall
Committee purchased the building for £1,000. A tremendous amount of work was carried
out by the committee of the day and in 1980 the hall was altered and extended to
include a kitchen, toilet, entrance foyer and decorated throughout. A great deal
of the money was raised locally, but we were also able to take advantage of local
council grants. We now have a new kitchen and disables toilets and ramps so that
everyone of all ages and abilities can be part of the many activities we hold all
During the course of the year we hold many and varied events from Sunday lunches,
a Lincolnshire Fayre evening (this is always a fantastic spread of foods sourced
locally) and in the now always oversubscribed Lincoln Red Beef evening, when our
local farmers cook large joints of village Lincoln Red Beef for around 80 people.
Other popular events include the Spring Flower Show and the Flower & Vegetable Show
later in the year when villagers from Hemingby, Baumber and Edlington are invited
to present their produce - the standard is always high.
Travelling theatre groups also visit us several times a year, when villagers are
able to enjoy events they would normally have to travel a considerable distance to
enjoy. We have heard award winning Northumbrian pipers, The Irish Harper of the year,
Celtic Fiddle players, stories for children and ghost stories for adults. We have
been lucky enough to hear fabulous poets and see puppeteers and comedy plays, all
on our doorstep.
Hemingby Village Hall remains a key element in the fabric of our community and enables
us to get together for official meetings (Parish Council, Church, Local elections
etc.) but above all to socialise and help strengthen the village. Our Village Hall
is here to welcome locals and visitors alike.
Hemingby Village Hall (Address: New End, Hemingby, LN9 5QQ) is an ideal venue for social events of all kinds.
Our well equipped kitchen provides facilities for preparing refreshments or complete meals.
Our small hall is the place for a meeting or smaller gathering.
It also doubles as a licensed bar.
Our large hall provides space for bigger events and, with the hall’s tables and chairs, up to 80 guests can be seated for a meal.
