Hall History

East Clandon Village Hall was built in 1920 by Goodhart-Rendel for the use of the villagers.

Over the years it has been a Working Men's Club - the Ancient Order of Buffalos, a Woodwork club for the youth of East and West Clandon and in 1939 it served as the Home Guard Base. The Stage was used as a library and the school teacher was present twice weekly. During the Second World War the Hall was used by school children and evacuees. The original wooden kitchen (subsequently demolished in 1992) was built in 1940 as an office for Air Raid Precautions (ARP) and the Home Guard.

In 1968 the estate of the deceased Captain PRR Dunne (who had inherited it from Goodhart-Rendel) suggested swapping Tunmore Fields for the Village Hall. The Tunmore Fields had been given to the village by Goodhart-Rendel in 1948. The Parish Council did not accept this proposition and probably would not have been allowed by law to do this.

The estate rented the Village Hall to the Parish Council at 1d per year and the Parish Council was responsible for the decoration. In 1970 the estate reneged the right to use the Hall to collect rent and conduct auction sales. In 1974, the estate of Captain Dunne, having failed to agree with the Parish Council to give them Tunmore Fields, finally donated the Village Hall to the village.

In 1976 the Village Hall became a registered charity to be used by the villagers for their benefit and has been managed by a Management Committee ever since.
