The Memorial Hall has been central to the lives of the village since it was built in 1922 in memory of all from the village who had fought in World War I. It is one of the few memorial halls in the country that has its roll of honour proudly displayed at the head of the hall, as a reminder to us all of its historic origins.

A committee manages the hall on the behalf of the village; we run a number of fundraising events each year to maintain the upkeep of hall. It is also available for private hire. It is used by many local groups on a monthly basis including the Stone-cum-Ebony WI and Stone Bingo.

Activities at the Hall have included Bingo, Short Mat Bowls, Yoga and dance groups, meetings of the Women’s Institute, quiz nights, race nights and jumble sales.  For further information about yoga classes, run by Lizzie Winwood, please visit www.altaihealing.com. Please also see below.

Kent Fire and Rescue have generously donated a Defibrillator and Cabinet to the village, for use in emergencies. This has been installed on the outside of the Memorial Hall, next to the front entrance.
