OUR EXCELLENT KITCHEN
In 1921 Herbert Moser, a great benefactor to the village of Sway, gave land for a meeting place for the Women's Institute, which had been founded in 1918. Mr Moser's sister-in-law, Henrietta Moser, was the first President.
Mr Sam Crittall advanced money to purchase an old army hut, it stood where the Village Hall car park is now situated and had a tennis court behind it. Built of wood and corrugated iron, the building had a stage, kitchen, cloakroom and an annex held a library.
A new building was planned, but this had to be put on hold due to the start of World War II. During the war money was raised to support a war savings campaign and the monies raised were held in trust to build the new Village Hall.
In 1963 fundraising started with two successful "Sway Weeks", grants received from the Government and New Forest Rural District Council and donations from the public.
The Women's Institute offered a long term lease on the use of their site to build the new hall with a peppercorn rent of £1 per annum on condition that they had their own room in the building.
Building started in 1965 and the opening ceremony was performed by two local children, Jeanette Palmer and Jonathon Gale, on the 3rd September 1966.
In recent years the Hall has had extensive refurbishment with a new updated kitchen, double glazing, cavity insulation, upgraded heating and lighting systems and redecorations throughout.
Live Music Events, Dances, Children's and Adults parties. Wedding Receptions and Family Celebrations, Club and Group Meetings, Workshops, Seminars, Auctions, Lectures, Exhibitions, Craft Events
