The Village Hall Management Committee manages the Village Hall, opposite the Church, which used to be the Village School.

 

The Old School is a registered charity and the committee is responsible for maintaining the building for the use of the people of Shilton.

 

It is also the principal organiser (working with the PCC) of social and fund-raising events in the village.

The Trust was set up in 1970 when several small local charities were amalgamated by the Charity Commissioners.

 

These were originally set up to alleviate hardship or provide education for village children. Allottments were also provided in the field on the corner of Alvescot Road. In 1971, as demand for allotments diminished, the field was rented to a local farmer where it  remains today under a secure agricultural tenancy.

 

For details of how the Trust may help you, please do get in touch.

All applications or queries will be treated in absolute confidence.

 

Shilton Baptist Chapel:

 

 

We are unsure as to whether the church is of Saxon or Norman origin. However, the Cistercian Abbey of Beaulieu was responsible for most of the building work. The Church’s font is probably Norman: its fine, high-relief carving of the Passion of Christ and raised legs are 14th Century.

 

  • Baptisms take place as part of the Parish Communion service on Sunday mornings

  • There are two or three Communion services a month plus occasional

       Matins and Evensong services
