Laycock Village Hall team make it fun !
A team of dedicated local volunteers is behind the running of the hugely successful Laycock Village Hall.
The hall has been available for hire for parties, etc. for many years with regular long term hires including a yoga class and the Womens’ Institute, but there are now new activities run by village residents.
A Coffee Morning and Book Swap is held every first and third Wednesday morning, On Thursday mornings there is a Painting Group and on Friday evenings the very popular Singing Group takes place. This attracts over thirty people every week.
The Hall, which was built in 1927, is a registered charity and is run by a committee of Trustees. There is also a Social Committee which organises the Halls own events,
Chairman of Trustees Jim Walker said “I think it’s a great tribute to the people who live in and around Laycock that so many of them are prepared to give their time. We have a monthly Committee meeting and I try to keep it light hearted but focussed on getting things done.”
To raise funds for the upkeep of the Hall the Social Committee runs events every few weeks, such as Beetle Drives, Race Nights, local speakers a
Recently, the Laycock Players were formed and have put on a Murder Mystery night and a School Quiz, Their next event is ‘Allo, Allo’ followed by a Murder Mystery Panto next year.
Over the last few years the Hall has been modernised thanks to grants, from various sources including Bradford Council and is ready for many more years of service to the area.
