Testimonials

Hiring the hall was easy the hall looks lovely now. I have hired the hall for a few occasions and friends and family have commented how lovely the hall is I highly recommend. It is lovely and clean.

We were very pleased with the Village Hall for the funeral reception. We did have a slight pause in the proceedings whilst waiting for the yoga ladies to finish but having the extra room where people could wait meant that this wasn't a problem. We had plenty of space for everyone to sit round and chat. I would definitely recommend it as a venue for a party or family gathering.

I had my 40th birthday party last May and couldn't be happier with my choice of hall.  Lovely big bright space with all the amenities you could need. I used the kitchen and the speaker system and was very impressed.  The help and advice I got from you was second to none giving ideas for set up, showing me how things worked and even helping tidy up at the end. You couldn't have been more accommodating and I wouldn't hesitate to use the hall and recommend it to others in the future.

We have hired the hall on a number of occasions, for our Daughter's birthday party and my Dad's 70th afternoon tea party! All were a great success and everyone who came commented on how lovely the hall was. The hall is very light and spacious and has a very well stocked kitchen. It is always cleanly presented, especially the kitchen and toilets. The added bonus of the outside play area works really well when there are little ones to entertain.

Laura

A12 Villages Traffic Action Group hired the hall and we were very happy with the arrangements and facilities..

Alan

We thought the hall was lovely, a lot of our guests also commented. Very clean, bright and airy. The kitchen and toilets were also very clean and modern. Everything worked like clockwork, we were able to leave our outside caterer to set up and lock up with your assistance and we very grateful that all the tables were set up in advance for us. The booking system was very easy and it was great to be able to see what availability there was in advance. We would recommend this hall as a lovely venue for private and corporate events

Caroline

I hired the hall about a year ago so not recently. The hall is lovely, well stocked with chairs and tables. The kitchen is also well stocked and the layout is perfect. It's also very good value for money!

Justina

We have hired the hall many times for hosting our children's parties and as a venue for our very large extended family get togethers! The Hall has great facilities, it is always clean and tidy and kept in great condition. Our guests have always commented on how nice the hall is, and we've even had friends living outside the village hire it rather than their own Village Hall!

Paula

Messing Village Hall is in a beautiful location and its calm environment is perfect for yoga classes. The hall is extremely clean and warm - which is really important for yoga! Steve who is in charge of bookings is really friendly and made everything run smoothly.

Gemma

Essex Care Consortium was extremely impressed with the cleanliness of the hall. The kitchen was spotless and despite bringing our own tea/coffee/sugar etc. we were very kindly advised by the nice lady who let us in that we could help ourselves to the supply in the kitchen. The hall was decorated lovely and the facilities were perfect for our requirements.

Clare

What a wonderful venue! The people in charge are so nice, and really approachable. The venue has all the mod-cons that you could possibly need, all set within the beautiful, peaceful little village of Messing. We began hiring here in 2016, and are now regular hirers. The prices are very good, and all in all, this newly refurbished hall is a rare gem!

Joanna

The hall provides me with a quiet, flexible professional space to meet with clients offsite. In the centre of such a beautiful and quiet village, you can’t help but feel relaxed which is perfect for me to help clients to free their thinking from the daily doing and focus on the big picture. It is easy to book and access, the community organisers are always helpful and accommodating and the facilities very clean and welcoming. I hesitate to recommend it too highly (which it thoroughly deserves) for fear it gets so popular I struggle to get availability.
