- What do you remember about the Hall?
I have clear and fond memories going back to October 1981. Having recently arrived with my wife and three young boys to Worlington we were encouraged to attend the Harvest Supper in the Parish Hall. It turned out to be the place we would always remember as our introduction to the community and our home for the next 35 years. We were accepted and welcomed and I always feel that is where it all began and how grateful we are.
My first memory of attending East Worlington Parish Hall was at playgroup. I can remember playing in a little house with Ben Crane and Judith Wall! I would have been 3 or 4 years old, so approx. 1976/7.
I decided it was necessary to have a play school in Worlington. Called a meeting and was well supported in 1974. As there were many young families on farms and village who did not go out a lot. It would also be good for mums. We had a coffee morning to get started with equipment and staff. The hall was always the same. The equipment was kept in room on stage. The play school has been running over 40 years in Worlington.
