About the memorial: FIFTY YEARS OF THE VILLAGE HALL Sleaford Standard Tuesday 24 October 2006 14:59 USERS of a village hall have celebrated its half century. Helpringham Memorial Hall opened 50 years ago and is still going strong at the heart of the community who marked its anniversary with a special commemoration event. Throughout the afternoon the village hall hosted demonstrations and displays by people and groups who use its facilities. The village primary school planted a time capsule within the building and there were shows by the martial arts group, ballroom dancers, plus refreshments. Chairman of the village hall committee Robert Watts explained his grandmother gifted the land for the hall to the village in 1961 and it took five years to build. The land had become available when a row of cottages were blown up in the Second World War when a passing German bomber unloaded its bombs on the way home from a raid. The hall was dedicated in memory of those who died in the Second World War and a plaque made by Charles Arum from old school desk lids has been refurbished and will be rededicated on Remembrance Sunday.
