Ditchingham Village Hall on Loddon Road, replaces a hut erected in 1920 and stands on a part of the heath donated by the Carr Estate. In 1975 a committee of dedicated villagers proposed replacing the hut with a structure that would serve the needs of every section of the community. Grants of 50% from the Department of Education and Science and 25% from Norfolk County Council were available on condition that the village found the rest. By 1980, owing to inflation and more ambitious plans, Ditchingham’s original target had doubled to £15,000. In 1981, when the building was opened, the village had raised £18,000 from coffee mornings, fetes and donations including those from Ditchingham United Charities.
