Village Hall - General Information
The Hall provides a flexible area suitable for the smallest of meetings to gatherings of up to 100. Two impressive murals depicting Tittleshall and its immediate environment provide the backcloth to events and it is hoped in 2004 to have on display prints of Tittleshall in a bygone age.
In 1996 the Hall became the venue for the first computer "telecottage" in North Norfolk and today computer facilities are still available for use upon request and fax and photocopying machines are also maintained and available for use by residents.
Available to hire on a morning, afternoon, evening or whole day basis the Village Hall is an ideal venue for meetings, parties, family celebrations and educational or social events. The kitchen has recently been refurbished and there is a disabled toilet.
The Hall is self-funding, holding Coffee Mornings in the spring and winter along with the popular Harvest Supper and Carols, Pie and Punch Evening. The latter two provide a "stage" for local talent. Whilst we do not set ourselves to be a social committee for the Village we try to be the heart of what is going on.
Situated in the High Street it takes only a little imagination to visualise the Village Hall as it was when it was the Village School. Built in the 19 th century and accommodating up to 100 pupils in its two rooms it was the centre of this rural community.
The exterior of the building has changed very little and inside you can easily imagine rows of children huddled over their desks whilst the head teacher sat by the school's only luxury - an open fire. The school was closed but in 1973 the property was conveyed to a group of trustees for the not inconsiderable sum of £1,500.
The task facing this band of villagers was the renovation of an old and dilapidated building which in typical Tittleshall style they achieved. They set the standards to which the current trustees strive in their efforts to sympathetically update and improve the property. The Village Hall Management Committee aiming to maintain the building for the village has representatives from all those bodies who regularly use the premises and within that grouping are a number of individuals who strive to keep the Hall fit for the many and varied uses it is put to.
