The community website for Pen Selwood
Originally built in 1847, with later additions, the present Village Hall used to be the School; indeed several ex-pupils still live in Pen and can tell many a tale of their days there. The School closed in 1947 and the building was converted into the Hall in 1968.
The Hall has many regular users, including two Art Groups and a Pilates group. It is also home to Parish Council meetings, the Black Bin Café (every other Friday morning on black bin collection days) and the Pen Pub on the first Friday evening of each month. It has become a popular venue for children's parties, as well as Church-related functions such as Christenings, exhibitions and much more.
Hall hiring rates are very reasonable. Bookings can be made through Penny Varnes on 840680. Details of the current booking arrangements can be found on the Parish Notice board on the Hall's north wall.
