A Brief History of the Green School Hall
This building, located on the opposite side of Church Street to St Guthlac's, was the local school when Market Deeping was a village. It was built on land donated by the then Rector, Reverend William Hildyard, in 1851 for girls and infants (there had been a boys school for 300 years!). By the1960s, children of both sexes were being taught in the Green School and at various other locations in the village. In 1967, the William Hildyard Church of England Primary School opened in Godsey Lane to provide better accommodation for them.
The Diocese of Lincoln then handed responsibility for the Green School to St Guthlac's Church on a lease and repair basis and for use by them and the people of Market Deeping for mainly educational purposes. There is a management committee nominated by the Parochial Church Council.
In 2004 major work was carried out to the electrical system and toilets to ensure the building complies with the requirements of the Disability Discrimination Act.If you'd like to book the hall then please contact Christine Gaughan on telephone 01778 344 294
