The Hall is a former NAAFI hut recovered from Filey RAF Camp in 1946 and erected on its present site (given in trust by Commander George Bryan Palmes of Naburn Hall) in Vicarage Lane in 1947. Considering that it’s a second-hand “temporary” building, the hall has served the community remarkably for well over 60 years! It was completely renovated in 2010 and is managed as a registered charity by a committee, consisting of up to 14 members elected for 12 months at the annual AGM.
