Gigha Village Hall

 

The Gigha village hall has long belonged to the people of Gigha. It was bought outright from the National Council of Social Service in 1963. This council provided similar halls all round Scotland. The land it was built on was rented from the laird at a peppercorn rent. Now of course we own the land too.

The hall has charitable status - Scottish Charity no: - SC029641. It is a trust with, currently, 5 trustees and is run by a management committee. It is the centre for a lot of the social activity on Gigha as well as being used for public meetings and private functions. It has fairly recently been renovated with the aid of a grant from the Lottery Community Fund. The work was completed just as the initial stages of the discussion for the community buyout began.

The hall consists of the main function room, which will seat about 100 people comfortably, a well-equipped kitchen, toilets and storage space.

The main room has a platform, about 18 inches high, made up of 6 sections 48 inches square that can be slotted together in various formats or removed altogether, a music centre for CDs with two speakers and a karaoke machine and disco lights.

There is sports equipment available for Badminton and carpet bowls and also a small pool table.

The kitchen has a cooker, fridge, microwave, tea urn, kettles, at least 100 cups, saucers, tea plates and teaspoons, 50 dinner plates, soup bowls, knives forks and spoons (dessert and soup). There is a serving hatch into the main hall. There is also a serving hatch in the back storage space so that a bar can be provided. (Arrangements to be made with the hotel).

There is a ramp leading up to the main door and toilet facilities for the disabled and a nappy changing unit.

During the winter the hall is well used by the local people. Regular activities include badminton, carpet bowls, SWRI meetings, whist drives, Gaelic classes, children's highland dancing classes and keep fit activities. Ceildhs, concerts, drama, discos, and board meetings have all happened in the hall this year. Every year there is also a children's Halloween party and Christmas party. The hall is not Ideal for badminton as the ceiling is rather low but our players have a definite advantage over visiting teams if they are used to higher ceilings!

One of the most popular events for locals and visitors is the regular Wednesday afternoon tea with sales table for church funds. (Anything from home baking to second-hand books, bric-a-brac, preserves etc. Anything (within reason!) that anyone wants to get rid of, we sell!!)

The hall is available for hire for private parties, weddings, public meetings, seminars etc. and needs to be booked well in advance with the secretary.
