Parish Council Chairman Gordon Beach cut the first sod for the hall on 20 October 2000, after negotiations going back more than 20 years, as reported in the Eynsham Echo of February 1998. Local architects Stanhope Wilkinson Associates (SWA) had the building open within 12 months and Fred Wright supplied an overview in the Eynsham Record 19 (2002) pp 14-17.

The Council is also involved in upkeep of the Bartholomew Room and the Sports Pavilion.
