Sited in Cobbs Lane, Hough, the hall was built in the 1960’s with money raised by local residents and on land donated by Mr Walter Dodd, a local business man at that time.
The hall was used by local groups and organisations and hired out for private functions, but over the years, due to financial restrictions and limited maintenance the hall deteriorated, and being over 30 years old at the time, some modernisation and renovation were needed.
A lottery grant was received during the mid 1990’s to improve the exterior of the hall and enhance its appearance within the location, but more recently the deteriorating fabric of the building, coupled with the need to provide disabled facilities, led to more drastic measures being necessary.
The Village Hall Committee, in conjunction with Hough & Chorlton Parish Council, undertook a major refurbishment of the facility with the help of a generous grant from WREN waste recycling group in 2005/2006.
Sections of the hall were rebuilt and an extension was added. A new entrance hall, cloakroom and toilet block were constructed. A new bar area and store room were created and all the windows and exterior doors were replaced with double glazed units. The interior also benefitted from new tiled areas and in time, new window blinds were fitted and 100 new chairs purchased.
In 2007, work was finally completed with an upgrade and refit of the kitchen, including new appliances , with the aid of a match-funded grant from the then Crewe and Nantwich Borough Council.
The hall has ample off-road parking and is insured to cater for events of up to 100 people. The hall ,which is run as a charitable trust , is now maintained to a good standard and is extensively used by local groups and hired out for private use.
