Early 2018 saw the begining of construction of a new village hall for Darsham. The old village hall, a coverted WW1 hut had come to the end of its life. Many plans had been looked into over the previous 20 years or so but a solution was found when a free hall was offered by surrounding landowners which would include a small housing delelopment.

Below is a pictorial record of the construction of this hall and surrounding houses.
