The Village Hall has long since been the primary function room for Aston Abbotts. Built in the late 19th century it is small, but used by many groups throughout the year, including weekly coffee mornings, church events, the Ladies Club, Bingo, Whist, quizzes, musical events, teas at the annual fete at the end of July and, of course, Parish Council meetings. It is also available for private hire. Over the years it has seen youth clubs, village discos, private parties, and many, many other functions. The hall is managed by a charitable trust - the Aston Abbotts Village Hall Trust - under a long lease from the Church. The hall reopened in April 2017 after major renovation and extension. The hall has a wheelchair-accessible toilet and an access ramp to the main building, as well as greatly improved facilities inside. We are extremely grateful to the following major sponsors: WREN, Aylesbury Vale Community Chest/Housing Trust, the Aston Abbotts Christmas Show Fund, and Garfield Weston. We have also received financial support from the Parish Council, the Parochial Church Council, Bucks County Council Community Leaders' Fund, and Waitrose Leighton Buzzard.Last but not least, we have raised a great deal of money ourselves in the village from user groups and individuals. We held our official reopening ceremony on 20 May. The hall has a maximum capacity of 60 people and is in a central location in the village between The Green and the church.
