Victory Memorial Hall


Victory Memorial Hall is the village hall in Temple Sowerby, which provides a location for meetings and a range of village activities. The hall was paid for by public subscription and was built in 1922. It was officially opened in June 1923 by Lady Irene Tufton of Appleby Castle. The hall was built to commemorate 6 servicemen from the parish who lost their lives and 35 who served and returned from the First World War (1914-1918). Their names are listed on the roll of honour in the hall. Following the Second World War (1939-1945), additional rolls of honour named 3 peole who lost their lives and 33 servicemen and 2 civillians who served and returned from that conflict. In 2018 the Victory Hall was registerd as Charitable Organisation.
