Village Hall

The Glapthorn Village Hall is a registered charity run by a management committee for the benifit of the community and the surrounding area. The building boasts an excellent main hall with a purpose built bar and kitchen. Ample cloakrooms and toilet facilities make it an ideal venue for functions and meetings, large and small.

To find out more about the charges and conditions of hire, and make a booking, see below.

Wine & Cheese evening

There will be a wine & cheese evening on Friday 18th August starting at 7.00 pm. This is an opportunity to see the NEW kitchen. ALL Glapthorn residents are welcome.

The defibrillator is up and running.

The defibrillator (AED) in the telephone box near the Village Hall is up and running. The code for access to the AED cabinet is C2589X, but before using it, a call should always be made to the emergency services. They will be able to give out the code if needed, as well as mobilise the ambulance service.

PLEASE NOTE the defibrillator needs to be used in conjunction with CPR. It will not save a life on its own. If you don’t know how to do CPR, there are frequent, excellent Heartstart courses run by Oundle Rotary Club ( There have been two recent Heartstart courses in Glapthorn, giving basic first aid training, including an insight into how the AED works. However, anyone who needs it will be able to use the device from instructions given by the machine itself.

Table Cloths

In an effort to ensure the white linen village hall tablecloths are kept in pristine condition and ready for use, a decision has been made for them to be available only by hire at a cost of £10 per cloth (to cover professional cleaning costs). Anyone interested in hiring the cloths should call Jeff Knowles on 01832 274963.
