The War Memorial Hall, situated on the southwest side of the Common, was funded by significant donations from local people and public subscriptions to commemorate the fallen of the Great War. It was opened on 11th November 1922 and cost £5,000 to construct. The actual construction, by the local family firm of Darvell (who donated the memorial board inside the hall), was based on the same plans as the village hall at Bovingdon.

It immediately became the centre of village life and later, in 1969, was further extended. Today the War Memorial Hall has become the centre of a wide variety of regular village activities including dance and drama, keep fit classes, indoor bowls and youth events. Horticultural shows, dog shows, literary eventsart festivals, theatre productions, film club, line dancing , choral and opera societies and private functions all make full use of its many facilities.

The War Memorial Hall was extended and refurbished in 2015 and the Common Room created as an additional venue.
