About Us

Catisfield Memorial Hall was established in 1947 on land donated by Samuel Mortimer as a memorial to residents of Catisfield who had lost their lives during WWII. The original building was a government surplus hut from Corhampton Down, and this was replaced by the current brick building in 1962, financed by the sale of part of the hall’s land.

Charity Registration

The building was officially registered as a charity with trustees and a life president who, for many years, was a member of the Mortimer family. The hall was extensively refurbished in 2010-11, under the guidance of its then chairman and now life president, Penny Melville-Brown.


Catisfield Memorial Hall has recently become a member of the National Council for Voluntary Organisations, which will give it access to a wide range of resources including;

 Training - free online courses & 30% off our face to face training

 Valuable savings - our trusted suppliers can help you reduce costs

 Volunteer support - everything you need to know about your legal rights and obligations when managing volunteers.

 Tools & templates - HR policies & template documents for you and your board

 Trustee recruitment - free advertising in our Trustee Bank and sample role descriptions.

 Helping us to promote this community resource for the good of the residents of Catisfield and the surrounding area.

Community Facility

The memorial hall is now the village’s only community facility, and local residents are keen to see it used by as wide a range of people as possible, both on a regular basis and for one-off events such as wedding receptions, parties, and meetings.
