After the 2016 Fayre The Village Hall Committee declared - Mission Accomplished.

Starting from a small event in 1991 to raise funds to renovate our Village Hall, a converted 15th century tithe barn the fayre has become a major annual event attracting hundreds of visitors.

When Vic Beer and Linda Harvey took over the running of the Hennock Village Hall more years ago than they now care to think about, they set themselves two goals. The first of these was to ensure that sufficient funds were available to maintain the decorative state of the hall and to meet ongoing insurance and maintenance costs. The second and longer term goal was to raise enough money to be able to re-thatch the hall when it next becomes necessary, which is expected to be in 2020 or 2021. It can now be revealed that sufficient money has been raised to ensure that the hall can be maintained and re-thatched. This is entirely due to the success of the Village Fayre over the last 5 years, which has become something of a local ‘Event’. Now that the village fayre has just celebrated its 25th anniversary with a healthy bank balance Vic and Linda have decided to step down as Fayre organisers; however they will be remaining in their posts on the Village Hall committee. It is entirely due to the efforts of everyone who has volunteered to help at the Fayre under Vic and Linda’s direction that we can now declare Mission Accomplished and wish all good fortune to the future Fayre organising group.
