History of the Memorial Hall

The Hall was originally St. Michaels Church Memorial Hall, built by Mr A Pettit in memory of his wife Ellen Pettit in 1928. In 1969 the Parish Council were notified that the Vicarage (now Kingsley David Solicitors) and hall had been purchased by Newport Rural District Council who intended to build old people's bungalows on the Vicarage garden. The Parish Council approached Newport District Council and enquired if the hall could be sold to the Parish Council for Community use, this was agreed, and the Council took ownership in 1970, and Newport Rural District Council built Shelton Court.
