The hall is run for the benefit of the community by elected officers and a committee which represents the user groups. The committee have been fortunate in being offered grants to help maintain and develop the facilities. It must nevertheless, from time to time, conduct fund raising events to cover costs. It tries to do this in interesting ways that also have a social function.
The hall committee endeavours to raise funds through social events that are also fun and involve members of the community. Annual events include : A Duck Race on Gladestry Brook, a Village Walk and a Social Christmas Quiz.
