About Blaby & District Social Centre
This hall is managed by a committee of volunteers from the local community and is a Registered Charity (No. 521394). The committee members meet every 4-6 weeks and oversee the arrangements for maintenance of the hall and hiring out of the hall for one off or regular events. The committee also organise community events that raise money for the hall and bring local people together, such as the Blaby Bazaar, Film Nights and concerts. The money raised from hall hire and events is used, together with community grants to keep the building heated, lit and in good condition.
The Blaby and District Social Centre was built in 1958 on land donated to the local community by local business woman and benefactor Alice Viscountess Hall (Alice Walker), after whom we have named our main function room.
