St Boswells Village Hall (formerly known as St Boswells Public Hall) is strategically located at the hub of the village. The St Boswells Public Hall was built in 1895 of traditional block and brick construction with later additions (see History for more details). While, in the past, programmes of improvements have been undertaken e.g. a flat roof extension has been added and some redecoration of some areas and upgrading of the kitchen, which was particularly successful, has been completed in previous years, a major upgrade was necessary to meet modern standards of comfort and energy efficiency. See the Renovation page for more details of the work completed, and an opportunity to help with further works.
St Boswells Village Hall is used by various organisations, groups and individuals in the Village for regular meetings, games, parties, events, training, concerts, and so on. These groups include:
St Boswells Badminton Club
