News & events

New beginning

The trust has now signed the lease and have had the keys handed over. We would really like for more people to get involved with the volunteering. We especially need help with weekdays during the day for secretarial duties such as taking telephone booking enquiries and responding to emails. Speaking to hall users to confirm bookings and their requirements for their event.

We also require help in all areas such as:
Setting up for events and clearing away afterwards
Bar staff
Door staff
Building maintenance

Civic Hall Update

It seems a long time since I last gave you an update on what is happening with the Civic Hall.

Thank you to everyone who brought us bric a brac for us to sell before Christmas. Our market stalls went well and almost everything was sold.

We now have a date for the transfer of the building from East Riding to the Cottingham Village Trust -the keys will be handed over on February 28th, so from Thursday March 1st the Trust will be running the Civic Hall and Council Offices.

At the moment we are very busy setting up all the legal arrangements and contracts that are required for running public buildings such as the Civic Hall and Council Offices. Then phone and IT has to be set up so that we can take over the booking system from East Riding and so on.

In future, if you want to book the Civic Hall for a meeting, event or anything else, you will be able to email 

The entrance to the booking office will be the former entrance to the Customer Service Centre, round the side of the building on the public footpath from the Market Green to the library.

Very good news !!


On Tuesday the East Riding cabinet agreed to the transfer of the Civic Hall and Council Offices to Cottingham Village Trust. Details still have to be agreed and the actual transfer will take place early next year.

 Thank you for all your support. Everyone has played a part in the success of this campaign, saving the buildings for Cottingham.

 Now we know that we need to fundraise seriously - so, come and support our fundraisers - the Zumbathon on November 26th, the Carol Concert on December 15th and Beautiful Couch on January 26th. The Chris Holmes show last week was a sell-out and a fantastic evening.

 We have saved the Civic Hall - amazing!
