We have a piano you can use.
A little time ago every household had a piano and there was someone in the house who could play. Time change but ever thought of learning to play? There is a fully tuned piano in the village hall and you could use it to learn on or practice for those exams. Or maybe you would like to play to entertain, it can be arranged. If you would like to use it please contact us for further details.

      VH needs YOUR input

    The village hall is one of the cultural and social centers of the village. How successful the village hall is depends largely upon YOU, the villagers. A small amount of effort brings a lot of enjoyment to all. Events that take place in the hall need organising, the building needs maintaining and the future needs planning. Can you contribute? If you would like to become involved in running and organising Dyke Village Hall activities you would be made very welcome. Without willing hands there will be no village hall. You do not have to be a full committee member, we have an every growing and important group of Associate Members. It's as simple as that! Please speak to one of the committee members or email to express your interest contact@dykevillagehall.org.uk
