Weston Village Hall will host an open day - which North East Herts MP Sir Oliver Heald will attend - on Saturday, January 25, to showcase their activities and facilities.

The open day will be held during Village Halls Week, an annual campaign run by Action with Communities in Rural England.

"It plays host to social gatherings, fitness classes, lunch clubs, a cafe and book exchange and much more.

"It's also a popular location for parties and celebrations. These things wouldn't happen if we didn't have our hall and volunteers."

Built in 1924, the village hall recently underwent refurbishment to become a bright, modern venue.
