History

 

 

Situated in the delightful village of Egginton close to the A38 and  the A50, Egginton Memorial Hall was built in 1857 by Sir Henry Every,  9th Bart. It was refurbished and enlarged in 2008, thanks to a generous  legacy from Geoff Wilson, a former resident of Egginton, together with  local fundraising and a number of charitable donations.

Memorial Hall 003 (resized)In 1929 the  Memorial Hall was set up as a charitable trust and acquired the  buildings and School House from the Every Family. The purchase is  recorded on a ceramic plaque put up in the Millennium year. The War  Memorial, inside the Geoff Wilson Room, is an engraved wooden panel  honouring those who served as well as those that were killed in the  First World War (1914 - 1918) and the Second World War (1939 - 1945).  Today the Memorial Hall is owned by a registered charitable company and  administered by a board of Trustee Directors on behalf of the village.
