Social & Leisure Amenities
Misterton is fortunate to have two halls to cater for meetings and events of all kinds, the Village Hall (for larger events and outside activities) and the W.I Hall (for smaller events).
The Village Hall has good facilities, including a large recreation ground (which is owned by The Parish Council), a children’s play area, football pitches and tennis courts. The hall is of a good size, with great facilities including football changing rooms which are regularly updated to keep in line with current demands or legislation. It has good car parking facilities and is used for many sporting, leisure activities and events including wedding receptions.
The W.I. Hall is a compact building which is owned by the W.I and is suitable for smaller meetings and events with on road parking. This is also kept up to date on an ongoing basis.
The village has many public footpaths and dog waste bins in appropriate areas. Public notice boards are situated at the corner of Turnpike Green and the W.I Hall. We also have a recycling bin at the Village Hall for clothing and shoes.
We have a well-established garage selling and servicing all makes of vehicles also petrol and diesel.

Memories of Misterton – written by Brenda Stacey.
Misterton is a thriving village with a very strong community spirit; you can always rely on residents to rise to the occasion when a crisis occurs within the village which requires fund raising or manpower. We are always looking for new avenues and volunteers to expand and improve upon the facilities we are so lucky to have in our great little village.
