You might well look at the building which dominates Girt beach on a pleasant summer’s morning and wonder, as you sip your coffee, what such a building was built for and why in such an exposed position. There was a building on this spot in the early 1800s and it became a public building in the early 1900s.
It is now a centre for cultural and social activities and since it also represents the sea defence for part of the village, its importance is more than simply as a building. For details of events held here please go to the website.
After the storms of 2014, with both central and local government assistance and a substantial input from the insurance company a strengthened sea wall has ensured the future safety of the building.
New balconies are now in place with refurbishment and redecoration allowing the building to reopen for use as a meeting place in the centre of the village.
A new lift has now been installed allowing disabled access to the first floor. Very soon the snooker table will be back and the members of this successful club will return.
If you wish to hire the building then please speak with our Bookings Secretary
