Poolewe Village Hall

The current Poolewe Hall was built in 1964 to serve the communities of Wester Loch Ewe. Although the building was still in fairly good condition it was too small and basic to meet the modern needs of today`s larger community. The current building is used almost every night of the week during the winter months for local clubs and organisations. In the summer, sales of work and a local market use the hall regularly, along with summer clubs for school children and evening entertainments for locals and the many tourists who visit our area. With such a wide range of uses and the number of local people who benefit from the facility it can truly be thought of as the centre of our community. With this in mind the local people decided they needed something better than the current hall and have now drawn up some grand ideas for a new hall.

Although this has been a long running project with many frustrations and disappointments along the way there was light at the end of the tunnel. We successfully raised £373,000 toward the renovation costs thanks to the numerous donations we received from locals, visitors and a range of charitable trusts and organisations. Building work started in May 2001 and was completed by the end of that year. The Hall is now in frequent use for many community events.
