Car Park Re-Surfacing – No more pot-holes and puddles! We now have enough money for a high-quality rolled asphalt surface, with marked bays. Our contractors C & G will start work in mid-January, at a date when it's not too cold, and the car parks will be closed for 3 days. Please avoid driving to the Hall if you can, or park considerately in the street for those 3 days, and beware of lorry movements for materials and machinery. The car parks will be securely fenced as part of the contract.

Great News - Support from your local CoOp The Hall has been chosen for the Co-op Local Community Fund. The funding runs 27 October 2018. If you are a member, please go on-line to and select Sturminster Marshall Memorial Hall as the local cause to support. Every time you shop at the Co-op, the Hall will benefit. 1% of all money spent at the Co-op on selected own-brand products and services goes to the Co-op Local Community Fund. This should be a significant money-spinner for the Hall. The more we shop at the Co-op, the more the Hall benefits and Co-op will also give us an equal share of the money they raise from sales of carrier bags.

If you are not a member of the CoOp yet, please apply at to earn cash back for yourself and the Hall, thank you.
