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 can be seen 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.
