Brief History of the Armoury Village Hall
In 2013 it was renovated with the help of generous funding from the Forest of Dean Local Action Group, a grant from Newnham Parish Council, and an incalculable amount of support and work from village volunteers. A new light, airy hall of 112 sq.m. was created on the first floor when the roof space was opened up, exposing the A frames and purlins, and a pitch pine floor was laid. The WCs were moved downstairs, where the old hall was transformed into a smaller hall with pine tables and chairs for different events. And we’ve now got a new fully-operational kitchen.
