Abbots Morton Village Hall

Abbots Morton Village Hall is a modern, high quality hall serving its community.


It’s also home to a number of activity groups from a wider area engaging in Pilates, Ballet and Tap dancing, Yoga and Triathlon training.

It’s a first-class venue for wedding receptions (above), family parties, fund-raising events, quiz nights and wakes.

In a superb rural location on the edge of a beautiful conservation village and easily accessible on the Worcestershire/Warwickshire border, it’s also an ideal spot for reunions where participants need to come from various parts of the UK.

JUMP Dance Classes

JUMP Dance Academy runs dance classes for children at the hall every Wednesday after school. The classes are run by Helena Mitchell,(below) who is a trained dancer and qualified teacher with the Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing.

Says Helena: “Children from age 3 and up can come and learn ballet, tap and modern dance. Our Story Ballet classes are specially designed for young children aged 3-5 and introduce basic ballet movements through storytelling and fun themes.”

For the timetable and more information visit www.jumpdanceacademy.co.uk or contact Helena on 07572 042164.


Pilates

A Pilates class is now well established in Abbots Morton Village Hall.

The spacious hall accommodates 10 people on Pilates mats on Monday nights between 7.30pm and 8.30pm.

The class is run by Pavla Line from South Littleton near Evesham.  Pavla teaches Body Control Pilates which focuses on “good movement skills, step by step, which ultimately give you strength and flexibility”.  Her class sizes are limited to ensure personal attention.  The current class is not suitable for beginners but she is happy to receive enquiries from anyone who is interested in Pilates with a view to holding a new beginners class if there are sufficient numbers.  Pavla also has a studio at home where she offers one to one sessions.  Just call her on 07747 441148 or email for further details.


Wi-Fi is on its way…

With superfast broadband now in the parish, plans are in progress for a Wi-Fi installation in the village hall. This will bring us up-to-speed for all those who expect to be able to use their electronic devices. The extra connectivity will make the hall a more functional place and make it an attractive proposition for a wider range of bookings eg small business meetings etc.


IQ5… a Quiz Night Success

Imo Dykes’s fifth Quiz Night (IQ5) on November 10th was a notable success.

It raised £400, with half going to the Acorns Children’s Hospice and half to the village hall funds.

Huge thanks to Sarah Dykes for her generosity and hard work putting the quiz together.


A Special Anniversary… 20 years old next February

Perhaps the most important event coming up is in February… the 20th anniversary celebration of the construction of this village hall.

The celebration is on Sunday 11th February and will run from 12 noon to 3pm.

It’s an opportunity for all in the community to come together and look back over the past 20 years and recall the occasions, parties, pantomimes, and a whole host of events that have been an essential part of Abbots Morton community life. The hall Trustees hope that anyone with archive material and memorabilia will be happy to display it.

Invitations will be sent out to everyone in the parish and the wider Abbots Morton Community as well as to those no longer living here who have been involved with the hall. The event is free and there’ll be a complimentary glass of wine and a cold buffet for all who come.
