Originally built in 1926 as a village institute, the previous hall was extended in the late 1950s and dedicated to all those from the village who gave their lives in the First and Second World Wars. The hall was always the centre of Lerryn village life but by the end of the 20th century had become somewhat dilapidated. It was therefore decided to raise funds for a complete rebuild in time for the new millennium. Under the leadership of Francis Allfrey this was achieved using funds raised by the people of Lerryn and by outside funding. In June 2000 the hall was reopened by the Lord Lieutenant of Cornwall and re-dedicated to the memory of those who gave their lives. It continues to be known as the Memorial Hall. The new building features a snooker room with a full sized snooker table, a large hall with a stage for performances, a well equipped kitchen and three store rooms, and also an upstairs committee room. It is licensed for public performances. In the main hall are: a projector and screen for showing films; stage lights and stage curtains; and plenty of chairs and tables. As well as film presentations the hall is used on a regular basis for Pantomimes, Plays, Films, Revues and other public performances, for Lerryn School activities, Lerryn W.I. meetings, Lerryn Art Group, Lerryn Produce Association, physical activities such as Yoga and Ki Aikido, Art/Craft shows and various committee meetings. It also hosts courses, parties and weddings. Our Memorial Hall is an amenity of which we are all proud!
