The land was purchased from Squire John Holt-Wilson in 1939. The playing field was initially used as a cricket field following relocation of the cricket pavillion from Barley Birch in Botesdale. The first building was a nissen hut which was used for showing films and social events. Children used to roll stones over the roof during the scary parts, to frighten the audience inside. The present hall is on the same footprint as the nissen hut. A programme of continuous improvement has added the many facilites now available.
Running the Hall and its facilities is the responsibility of the Village Hall Management Committee. This consists of the village hall trustees and representatives from a number of village organisations using the hall, and normally meets six times a year.
