Fradswell Village Hall
'A vibrant community hub at the heart of Fradswell, providing local opportunities to meet, socialise, learn, share & shop,
A model for rural community engagement'
We want to provide opportunities, facilities and services within the community to reduce isolation and the need to travel.
Our community has been here for generations. In all we do we strive to ensure it is here for generations to come.
We want to engage every part of our community, recognising the threat of rural isolation, especially being aware of the need to involve the young and the elderly.
We aim to provide opportunities that truly enable people, through teaching new skills and encouraging enterprise
Whatever we seek to do in the future we should always be proud of and embrace our tradition

Starting from January, your monthly Friday Bakehouse is changing, and will be held monthly on a Saturday! This will always be the first Saturday of the month. Having consulted with our 'regulars' we know this is the right move. This should suit our regular users, plus those that can't make a weekday. A Saturday also allows more helpers to volunteer.
The Share & Repair Community Cafe will be amalgamated
with the monthly Bakehouse, so feel free to bring items along for our Repair team to take a look at on Sat Jan 6th, Sat Feb 3rd and every 1st Saturday thereafter.
The following are all held weekly at the village hall:
Yoga - Mondays weekly, 7.30pm to 8.30pm.
suitable for beginners. For further information please contact Chrissie Phillips on 07831 552230.

Pop Up Bar and Fradswell Wassail! Fri 12 Jan from 6 pm. Come and Wassail with us! Be part of the third of Fradswell Wassail and help us to awaken the apple trees in the village hall orchard, to ensure a good harvest of fruit in the Autumn - for our Frapfest!
Join the assembled crowd (no charge!) as we proceed to the orchard, with flaming torches, singing, shouting and banging drums, pots & pans and instruments as we go.
Once there, we will place toast soaked in Wassail from the Wassail Cup into the boughs of the tree as a gift to the trees (and to show the fruits created the previous year).
Singing and drinking from the Wassail cup then follows!
It really is quite a spectacle! Come along and join in the merriment, or alternatively, watch proceedings from the warmth of the Village hall Pop Up Bar!
Bar opens 6pm. Wassail starts 7pm
