Ancient Classical Greece but would be delighted to welcome new members to join us.

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.
