Our History

Early Days

Tickton Village Hall was built by local residents on their return from Active Service – they were assisted by volunteers from the “International Voluntary Service for Peace” (a movement founded in 1917 by the Swiss Pierre Ceresole -further information on Google).  These young men and women volunteers camped in tents on the adjoining playing field during the Summer.

One of the original female German volunteers, now Mrs.Asta Simpson, was able to attend the 50th Anniversary celebration, and brought with her a congratulatory letter from the then team leader also from Germany, along with a copy of his thank you speech read out at a closing ceremony prior to returning to their homes in Austria, Norway, Finland, Switzerland and Germany in September 1948.

The Village Hall was formally opened in 1951 by Maurice J. Stephenson of Hull Bridge.  The large Main Hall and working kitchen had “shared use” as a Dining Hall and PE Hall for children attending the original Tickton CE Primary School.

More Recently

Over the last 30 years, improvements include gas fired central heating, double glazing, tarmac surface & safe pedestrian walkways over the car park, smaller children’s and disabled toilet facilities and resurfacing the smart wooden floor in the Main Hall.   Electrical improvements to install LED energy saving lighting and improved emergency lighting took place during  Summer 2016.

An innovative flexible stage and tiered seating arrangement compliment the excellent sound and lighting equipment for entertainment and fund-raising in the “Tickton Little Theatre”, with regular live professional and amateur productions.   For more information please see Tickton Little Theatre page.

With assistance from the East Riding Association of Rural Community Buildings, the management committee has successfully achieved the “Hallmark Two” quality standard for Village Halls and other Rural Community Buildings.
