About us

Worth Matravers

Village Hall

is an attractive Victorian stone roofed building with a modern rear extension and a lawned garden. 

 

The main hall downstairs is a classic school hall with a high open beamed ceiling, and there is a second carpeted committee room through which there is disabled access to all the ground floor. 

 

There is a recently refurbished, well equipped kitchen and toilet facilities include one with disabled access.  The hall provides a complete four-course dinner service with glasses, cutlery and serving dishes: everything you need for your wedding or banquet.  

 

Upstairs there is another larger carpeted room which can be used for carpet bowls, yoga, pilates and so on. 

 

Hire the entire facility or individual rooms, and equipment such as a table tennis table and a half size slate bed snooker table are available for use by hirers. 

 

Also available is a large marquee and several large gazebos which can be erected in the garden, complemented with modern furniture - soft stacking chairs for internal use, garden chairs for external, and both folding and fixed tables to allow you to set up for any event - wedding receptions, parties and conferences.

We have a Defibrillator

The Village Hall Committee has been pleased to

work with the Swanage Community Defibrillator Partnership (SCDP) to provide a public accessed Defibrillator for the v village of Worth Matravers.
 

The device is installed on the Village Hall outside wall adjacent to the main door.

The defibrillator and its heated cabinet were funded by the Village Hall committee following fundraising but work under the Governance structure of SCDP who ensure, by identifying a local guardian (Tim Arnold), who reports to a central point on a fortnightly basis, that the device and cabinet are well maintained and in working order.

All Defibs within SCDP are registered with the local Ambulance Trust and can be accessed by dialling 999 (Ambulance) who will provide the access code for the locked cabinet.

 

Local Familiarisation sessions are available
for village members.
