Dunston Village Hall is a registered Charity which was established in 1983.
Charity Registered Number 514319
The Village Hall building and grounds were given freehold to Dunston Parish in 1983 on the proviso that it was to be used as a Village Hall.
The Parish Council is the Custodial Trustee and holds the property whilst the Management Trustees are responsible for the day to day administration of the Village Hall.
The Management Trustees are all volunteers.
Dunston Village Hall was first opened as a community building
for the residents of Dunston in 1948 by Smiths Crisps who at
that time were the major employer in the area growing potatoes
for their famous Crisps.

There have been changes to the original building over the years, the addition of a kitchen, new roof, electric heaters,wooden floors and a disabled toilet facility. The building is at present undergoing a phased programme of refurbishment improving facilities whilst maintain the wonderful retro character of the original building.
You will have noticed that our King George statue no longer stands in our car park area. Sadly the wood core rotted and the statue fell over in April 2015.
We are looking at finding a replacement statue or art work but this may take some time.
Our "wooden man" lives on - somehow he is featured on the new Packman game and several people have been guided to the location where he stood and his picture displayed on their phone but sadly no King George!!!
