The following comments have been sent to The Speedwell from two regular users of the Hall:

“ The Speedwell Hall is looking absolutely amazing: it is now bright, clean and fresh. ....What a great achievement, congratulations to all involved.”

Barbara Dale, Girl Guide Leader.


“I really must congratulate you all on your wonderful achievement with The Speedwell Hall. I have been involved with the Speedwell since 1983 and during that time I have never seen it looking so good...... I congratulate Christine on her leadership, also Richard and John for all their hard work; how fortunate it is to have both of you on board!  I now look forward to being able to use the Hall for meetings.”

Geraldine Clotworthy,  former Chair of The Speedwell Hall; former Brownie Leader and currently Treasurer of The Stitchers.


The Speedwell Hall held a very successful Open Day on Friday 25th June. A wide selection of visitors came to look at the newly refurbished hall and kitchen. The Mayor of Crewkerne, Kathy Head, officially opened the new-look hall.

“Crewkerne Kitchen” were present, launching their new activity at The Speedwell. Every Friday morning they will be cooking nutritious meals and giving tips and guidance about preparing and producing economical and delicious meals and enjoy eating the results in the Hall with other participants.

Pictures of the Open Day can be seen in the Galleries section of this website.


Photo Gallery by Jeff Hutson

Jeff is a keen local photographer who has taken a wide range of beautiful photos of views of Crewkerne and surrounds in all seasons. He has also taken pictures of local craftsmen and makers of food and drinks based on local produce. Jeff has kindly mounted a wide range of these photos in the Hall and the Committee Room. They look stunning and superbly enhance the newly refurbished Hall. The framed photos are available to purchase and Jeff will kindly donate the net proceeds to The Speedwell Hall. When we are open again, be sure to visit and appreciate our very own Crewkerne Gallery in the Speedwell.
