It is with extreme regret that we announce the death of Sid Montague sadly passed away yesterday 27th. A long time supporter of the Village Hall and valued Trustee he had been bravely battling a serious lung condition for a long time which was brought about by his many years in the building game, being exposed to asbestos.
R I P Sid.
Sid’s funeral will be held at St. Mary’s Church, Charminster at 2.30pm and afterwards at Herrison Hall.

The Village Hall is managed entirely by volunteers. Our role is to provide a village Hall for the Community and the many clubs, classes and groups that meet in the Village Hall each week.
We also host parties, Weddings, Conferences and meetings. We hope you will enjoy the marvellous facilities at our Village Hall by joining a club or supporting one of the many events held here.
We would wish to remind clients that Dorset County Council do not supply refuse bins to Village Halls and therefore all clients must remove their own rubbish after their event and not leave it on the premises or in the adjoining apartments rubbish bins.
