Welcome to the web site for Oake & District Hall.
Serving the village of Oake and its surrounding communities of Heathfield, Hillcommon and Hillfarrance, the hall provides a bright, modern venue for any occasion. If you are planning a wedding, party, concert or run a club or class the hall has everything you need.
WE NEED A NEW SECRTARY
Our long serving secretary Brenda Snell has decided it is time for a change. Would you consider taking on this task? The committee deal with most issues on an as and when basis but we do need to be reminded of meetings. We have six brief committee meetings a year including our AGM and are required to keep minutes of our proceedings. There are other administrative duties but we try to share the duties around the committee. We would love to have you join us. Dave 461681 or Kirsten 400570
Situated in an attractive location close to Taunton, Somerset, it is only 5 miles from the M5 and half a mile from the B3227. There is ample parking and easy access throughout the hall. Facilities include the 8 x 19 metre Sharland Hall with stage, the comfortable Pig & Whistle Lounge and a fully equipped Kitchen.
April 2010 saw the opening of a Play Area adjacent to the old barn and the mini roundabout leading into Saxon Close. This scheme is aimed at children aged 8 to 15 in particular but younger accompanied children will also have a fun time! This imaginative scheme was funded by Play England, Taunton Deane Borough Council and the Big Lottery.
The Computer Room has 6 networked PCs. Oake entered the Calor Village of the Year Competition and won the Somerset Information Technology category and went on to win the South West and Western England regional IT prize in the national competition. Twice a month on Monday afternoons the cyber cafe is open to the public - the hall and village websites are updated by volunteers at this time.
A Newsletter is published by the hall every three months and distributed to all homes locally.
This site should provide you with all the information you require but please see our contact page for details on how to contact people for further help. A brief history of this new hall and its predecessor, demolished in 2003, is included. You can also read about the creation of this website.
