The Coffee Pot started in October, 2011, to provide a meeting place for Village people, with refreshments at “not for profit” rates. Increasingly, visitors from outside the village are being welcomed, and we have been asked also provide a venue for other, one-off events. Although we operate at rock bottom prices, we do make a small profit, and this too has shaped us. Now, we not only provide a place for friends to meet, and a source of a little revenue for the Village Hall, but each month, we draw the name of one of our volunteers out of a hat – and this person can designate a favourite charity for a donation. Everyone is welcome, and everyone, just by coming, adds something to the Village and its Hall. We meet most Wednesday mornings between 10.30am and mid-day.
DAMERHAM BADMINTON CLUB
Damerham Badminton Club meets in Damerham Village Hall every Tuesday evening from 8 pm.
We are a friendly, social club who play for enjoyment and the opportunity to get and keep fit. We are a mixed group in terms of age, sex and badminton skills.
We would welcome new members to join us
Christmas Get- Together
Every year the Village Hall Committee holds a free Christmas 'get-together' usually around the second Saturday in December when all village residents, past & present and village friends are invited to the hall for mulled wine and refreshments (all free!). This is held as a 'thank you' to the village for their continuing support of the hall. As you can see from the picture we really enjoy this warm & friendly event. At our 2015 event we introduced a toddlers area where the young ones enjoyed some festive activities, we hope to continue this in the future.
The Village Hall is host to several Jumble Sales throughout the year.
