Thank you to all those who have contributed to our wonderful new children’s playground:
the Veolia Trust for their incredibly generous grant of £45k towards our playground refurbishment fund. This really does give us a fighting chance of starting work sooner rather than later.
…the Prince Philip Trust, Bernard Sunley Foundation and to the Shanly Foundation, each of whom has pledged £5k towards the playground. Thanks so much!
…the Maidenhead Advertiser/Baylis Trust for donating a further £2k. We love our local paper! Read more about them on www.whytheadvertiserisspecial.co.uk
…massive thanks, too, to Bray Parish Council who have given us £4.5k towards the fund. It’s hugely appreciated.
Other recent playground donations include Sandy Slattery of The Village magazine (£2.5k) and the Mobbs Memorial Trust (£3k).
Other thanks to the Made By Sport Clubs in Crisis Fund paid for our newly installed 5-a-side football goalposts.
The Heathrow Communities Together Fund helped us buy our cinema club equipment.
The Berkshire Community Foundation helped us buy new, and much more comfortable, seats for our hall users.
The village hall is owned by the village and run by the HCT on a non-profit-making basis for the benefit of the local community.
The Hall has two spaces for hire to residents (at a preferential rate), non-residents, and local businesses and organisations, and is an ideal venue for parties, meetings, events and more.
The Hall is set in its own grounds with a large car park, playing field, tennis court, children’s playground and multi-use games area.

SUPPORT MAIDENHEAD FOODSHARE!
A collection box is now in the porch at the hall. Please donate as much as you can to this great cause. Tins and packets of dry food only. Thank you!
Our brand-new Platinum Jubilee Playground is now open for use! Thank you to all those who contributed so generously to the fundraising effort. See our “What’s On”page for more details.
We also have a Multi Use Games Area for older children up to 18 years old and a playing field for football and other games.
Available for hire all year round.
We are carrying out a major resurfacing of the tennis court in mid November, so the court will be out of action for a couple of weeks while the work is being done.
Our main hall is a spacious 35’ x 50’ (1066cm x 1524cm) with a sprung floor, incorporating a full-size badminton court. The stage includes performance-standard lighting and sound for dance and drama groups. We now have a second, smaller, room for hire complete with a projector and screen, kitchenette and loo, which is ideal for small groups and/or meetings.
“Moneyrow Green W.I. has met in Holyport War Memorial Hall for the past thirty-one years, using all the facilities for meetings, parties, entertainment, and other activities very successfully and happily. We send you our grateful thanks and wish you well in the future.”
Sylvia Jones, former President
“We are a club for the older people for the local community. We meet fortnightly at the hall and it is a fantastic space for our members to meet in, lots of space and easy access. The kitchen facilities are great, and the bar area is a great asset with the instant hot water tap to make hot drinks.”
Darby & Joan
“We use the hall every Monday during the school term. It is a great space for our group to meet in, plenty of space to play games and do our activities during our sessions. The stage area is great for when we do performance for the group or parents.”
“Lovely playground and grass area, loads of space”
