We are Volunteers
Update for our Hall - 3rd September 2021
We are open and ticking over with the various isolations that are pinging up here and there. The committee are running on a skeleton staff so please support us as best you can.
We are asking that now Covid guidelines are relaxing that all hirers offer a new risk assessment to keep their patrons safe.
We have exciting news that the new windows on the far side have been replaced by Majer Windows in Rochford and also the soffits, down pipes, porch and cladding on the far have been replaced by Hunt and Sons. For more information and pictures go to our blog.
A big warm welcome to…

A little about our hall....
Ashingdon & East Hawkwell Memorial Hall is a large beautiful village hall situated between Rochford and Hockley close to Southend. It is available for hire for up to 200 people in safer times. It has been completely overhauled to meet Covid-19 guidelines and has recently had the floor renovated, which is perfect for dancing and exercise.
A new committee has recently bought the hall to the forefront of the community, by holding community events to help families celebrate certain occasions through 2020 that couldn't have happened due to the Covid-19 Government restrictions. See our Halloween, Remembrance and Christmas Drive Thru event pages.
The Committee have many more plans they would like to bring to the hall like craft fairs, a teaching kitchen, a pantomime, a café and an internet café. None of this can be achieved without the hard work of the committee and the support of our community.
The hall also needs some renovations, the roof needs repairing, the heating needs updating and the kitchen refurbished. Even though we were in lockdown the committee still achieved so much. A more detailed list of achievements can be read on our blog 'A Story of a New Committee Member'.
Our hall makes an Ideal Function Venue and is also suitable for Birthday Parties, Business Meetings, Fitness and Dance, Engagements, Anniversaries, Corporate Events, Quiz Nights, Children's Parties, Craft Fairs…etc. It also has many added extras that make it such a user friendly hall to hire. A Sprung Maple dance floor, Stage area, Bar area, Kitchen area with serving counter, Wheelchair accessible Disabled toilet, Children's play area behind hall (King George’s Playing Field), Large free car park, free Wi-Fi, and a Separate meeting room available for hire.
