The Village Hall is situated in the corner of the playing field, marked with a blue dot above. There is pedestrian access to the playing field by the village hall but also in the opposite corner near the bus stop. Vehicular access is usually from Broadclose Way.

This also applies to Stocks Green situated opposite the telephone box and which is separately maintained by the Parish Council.
The Village Hall and Playing Field committee supervises the use of the facilities including accounts and maintenance. Costs are covered by hire charges, fundraising and grants.

There are also separate ladies, gents and disabled toilets.The Hall has a premises licence to hold events running from 8am to 11pm. For extended hours and permission to sell alcohol a separate Temporary Event Notice is required from South Somerset District Council. Details of how to apply for a TENS can be found on the SSDC website.
