The Foyer Wall proudly displays images of the involvement of HRH The Queen in the opening of the hall, along with the names of Wraysbury residents that lost their lives in WW2.The planning of the Village Hall goes back to as far as 1937, when the Parochial Charities (P.C.) were asked to release the land that Bridge Cottage used to stand on for a new Village Hall….All of the sports clubs, Scouts, Girl Guides, WI and other groups in the village set about raising money for this exciting new project and by 1939 work had started… Things came to a halt with the impending war. After the war, it seemed to stall and no further action was taken until about 1957….The Village Hall Committee therefore decided that the remaining cash raised and still sitting in the bank should be spent on improving The Scout Hut instead of an expensive new hall. However, not long after, it was decided that a new Village Hall would be built, and the P.C. made a generous donation of around £5000 towards the cost. Helped by the fund-raising efforts of Sir Kit Aston and Eric Larcombe at The Fair and designed by Gordon Cullen, a local resident, it was officially opened by HM The Queen in October 1974, as part of Her Majesty’s Royal Progress of the Thames, to mark the formation of the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead…
