About Elham Village Hall
and the EVHA
The present village hall was part funded by the Millennium Commission, and opened in 1999 to replace the 60 year old building (which started life as two Army huts).
The Elham Village Hall Association (EVHA), in conjunction with individual clubs, organises and promotes many Village functions and activities throughout the year for the benefit of everyone in the community.
These include events such as Conker Bash; Quizzes; Garden Party; Concerts; Stage shows.
EVHA also publishes the Elham Newsletter. This is produced 10 times a year and is delivered free to all the households in the parish.
Membership of the Village Hall Association is by the modest annual subscription of £5. By belonging to the Association, members contribute to the development of the hall, and have the use of its many facilities at discounted rates.

To assist EVHA Council members with the practical help necessary to organise and run various fund raising and maintenance functions, we keep a register of volunteers who can be called upon on an occasional Ad Hoc basis.
If you or any members of your family would like to register as one of our 'Helping Hands', we would be delighted to hear from you.
EVHA has available some very interesting and useful publications; these range from copies of the famous Elham Collage; Chalk Pit Cards: Walk Cards that guide you through some of the delightful countryside walks accessible from the village, to 'Past & Present', a colourful book of past and present memories of the Village.

The Elham Chalk Pit is a local beauty spot on the edge of the village which has become a wild-life haven. Throughout the year the Chalk Pit displays a wide variety of the indigenous flora of the district. The card is a replica of the interpretation board that is displayed at the entrance to the site showing in a delightful manner the wild flowers and insects that abide by the pit.
Also shown are attractions like Mary's Seat that was carved by local ladies from part of a tree that was felled during the great storm of 1987; from it is enjoyed one of the best views available of the village of Elham nestling in its peaceful valley with views extending to the opposite side of the valley and to the Village Hall and beyond.
