If you’re looking for somewhere to hold your party, meeting or a series of classes, Mortimer West End Village Hall could be the ideal venue. The flexible layout, with its spacious entry hall, large hall (6m x 9m) and small hall (6m x 3m) lends itself to many purposes. The kitchen is fully equipped and there are plenty of tables and chairs available to use. Fast and efficient heating makes it warm and cosy. The hall is also just 15 minutes from Junction 11 of the M4 and 20 minutes from Junction 6 of the M3 and has parking for about 20 cars. There is a recreation ground and children's playground across the road, and footpaths through the woodlands behind. The small hall can be hired for as little as £3.50 per hour during the day.
