interior2Williamson Hall is the village hall for Abernethy and its surrounds. Run by a voluntary committee as a charity / not for profit community resource, the building is owned by the Williamson Trust (Community Trust).

Over the last few years it has been fully refurbished, insulated and re-glazed and is the perfect warm and welcoming venue for your party, concert, ceilidh, organised youth group sleepover, community or fundraising event. Our ongoing refurbishment programme means we installed a new shower room in 2020,  a defibrillator in 2021, and we have just installed free guest wifi and CCTV. We are currently working on upgrading our lighting and electrics. Longer term plans include relaying our access road, installation of e-charging points and disabled parking as well as a spruce up of the hall exterior. We rely on letting revenues to maintain the hall, with grant funding used for upgrades. 

We held the “Good to Go” hospitality industry standard re Covid19, and still use cleaning products and methods effective against Covid19, have contactless hand sanitiser stations at both entry and exit points,  and enhanced cleaning stations for users.
