Fernham is a picturesque Oxfordshire village in the Vale of the White Horse with views of Uffington White Horse, the oldest hill-carved horse in the country.
The village has more than 80 houses, three farms, a combined church and village hall, a pub, two village greens, a village pump and a children's play park.
Though the village is small, the community spirit in Fernham is very strong and is often one of the reasons people choose to live here.
St. John's Church has been converted not only to make it a more comfortable place for worship, but also to double as a village hall which can be hired by villagers and neighbouring communities for private functions, clubs, societies, and a wide range of activities and events. The hall can seat up to 100 people comfortably, and has both kitchen and toilet facilities.
St. John's Church and Fernham Village Hall, run by the Fernham Village Trust, has its own car park, and has been a ersatile venue for everything from dance classes to lectures, and from birthday parties to craft fairs and concerts.
Interested? Contact Jayne Rice, the webmaster who is also the village hall bookings secretary.
An auction of promises will take place in Fernham Village Hall on Saturday, 28 September. The auction is a great opportunity to share your talents, abilities and skills with friends and neighbours, and raise some cash in the process.
