In addition to annual events arranged by the WVCA there are a number of other WVCA groups who regularly use the Village Hall and these are listed in the Village Hall section.
WVCA arranges a variety of events which aim to appeal to a wide cross-section of tastes.
Our village hall has played host to some hugely popular and varied events including theatre company productions, 'home-grown' Pantomimes and drama, live music from jazz and folk through to big band and classical. There are also regular quiz nights and wine tasting evenings. Programmes in recent years have included a Village Pantomime, Diwali celebrations, Chinese New Year and a James Bond evening.
Details of forthcoming events appear on Village notice boards, on the Association's web site www.wvca.co.uk, in the 'Once in a
While' and through occasional leaflets delivered by your Street Representative. You can see what is on every day at the Hall through the live calendar on the Village Hall page of the website.
Additionally, you can sign up to receive village information bulletins by email (Mailchimp) - see the website for details. More recently a Facebook page has become another information channel.
In addition to the annual River Clearance a number of working parties are arranged when required to maintain and improve the environment in the Village. These activities have included tree, hedge and bulb planting from the Delme roundabout to the M27 and at the junction of Military Road and Pinks Hill near the entrance to Fort Wallington, coppicing and ivy control along the river and maintenance of the water meadow.
