Ixworth Hall Needs Your Views!

The committee of Ixworth Village Hall are looking at ways to improve the facilities of the Hall.  We would like to apply for funding to upgrade our facilities and as this is your village hall we need your views on what you would like to see offered there.  If you could spend a few minutes filling in this questionnaire it would be very much appreciated.

Reasons for Upgrade

What do you think of this idea?

      Am I wrong in thinking that there is or was a karate club at Ixworth Village Hall and have you a contact number, please?

      Best wishes,

        Hi Robbie, Unfortunately we do not have a Karate Club presently at the Village Hall. The nearest we know of is a Kuk Sol Won group which is run by Kevin Sandford at Stanton Village Hall on a Monday and Wednesday. Sorry but we have no contact details so it may be worth googling or visiting the Hall – Claire.
