Willey’s birthday year

A village hall with a little-known royal connection turns 70 this year. Willey Village Hall is nestled in the hamlet of Willey between Broseley and Bridgnorth, and it was opened on 31 July 1948 by Princess Alice, then the last surviving granddaughter of Queen Victoria.

The hall’s committee are planning a few entertainments to celebrate the anniversary, starting with the Big Willey Quiz on Saturday 9 June at 7pm. Other events this year include a welly wanging and indoor skittles extravaganza on Sunday 1 July, and the annual Conker, Curry and Pumpkin Evening on Saturday 20 October.

Anne Skinner of the Hall’s committee says, “The hall is run by a small, friendly committee who would love to have more interested folk join them. We meet four times a year to plan our events and to keep the hall well equipped for the public to hire.”

If you’d like to help out on the committee or for details about any of the forthcoming events, call 01952 882324 or email anneskinner55@hotmail.co.uk.
