Letcome Regis

Letcombe Regis Recreation Ground

We are fortunate in Letcombe Regis to have a large area of land which was originally given to Letcombe Regis by Sir Roger Chance in 1848 "to be used forever as a Village Recreation Ground".  There you will find the village hall and sports pavilion.  Areas are set aside for the childrens playground, cricket, football and riding clubs and two tennis courts.

The Village Hall

The original village hall had been built on a small plot of land situated between the Letcombe Brook and the Parish Church burial ground. There was very little parking space and in the 1960's when it became apparent that the hall was in need of repair, it was decided to build the present hall on the recreation ground which was opened in 1971.

This hall served the community well over several decades but it was realised that the building was in need of either major refurbishment or replacement.  A new build group was formed and in April 2011 Villagers were invited to a meeting to view plans which had been drawn up by Pinelog which included facilities which villagers had requested in an earlier suvey and also conformed to current building standards.

Villagers were then asked to fill in a questionnaire asking if the proposal for a new Village Hall should be pursued.  The the resulting vote was 78.3% in favour.  The New Build Group then started applying for grants and in November 2015 heard that they had been awarded a major grant by the Big Lottery Community Grants Fund which together with other grants, Richmond Retirement Homes S106 money meant that the Trustees and Parish Council were able to go ahead with building a new Village Hall.  The building was officially opened by the Deputy Lieutenant of Oxfordshire in October 2016.

The hall is now available for hire and can be booked by contacting letregisvillagehall@gmail.com
