Our Vision

 

From preserving cherished memories and mementoes of the past to promoting the life long learning of future generations, this building at the heart of our community will be a place where young and old can meet, talk, be entertained, enlightened and enriched.

History

 

The school was erected in 1660 by the Reverend James Hyatt at his own cost, and was intended to be a "free school for the good education of the children of the parish".

The school was rebuilt by public subscription in 1827 and was home to the village infant school until March 1999.

This grade II listed building is now an excellent community facility
