Welcome to Froxfield Village Hall
Froxfield is a thriving village community with plenty of activities for visitors and residents alike. The village hall can be found at the centre of Froxfield situated next door to the very popular Froxfield CofE Primary School. The hall has recently opened its doors to the newly established Froxfield Pre-School and is situated opposite the beautiful parish Church of St Peter's, High Cross. Outside the hall is a children's play area and large recreational grounds with panoramic country views. The village hall is the hub of Froxfield village life and is the venue for many village events, friendship groups, clubs and societies.
The village hall website is the place to discover all about Froxfield's amazing community, identify local initiatives, search for clubs and societies, find out about events or book your own event! It is where you can learn about the variety of activities and opportunities to meet others within the Parish and beyond. We are proud of all that Froxfield has to offer and we hope that you will find our village website helpful in sharing what goes on in this vibrant community.
