East Williamston has flourished in recent years into a very pleasant area to live being a quiet, picturesque village with good community spirit. The Community Hall in East Williamston is a vibrant centre for local activities such as short mat bowls, square dancing, exercise classes and monthly quizzes. Jubilee Park has been a triumph for community members, who have seen it through from the purchase of the land to development of play area, nature trail and an open space for recreation for all in the community. During the early 19th century the area was heavily exploited by the mining industry for its rich coal seams and today the surrounding countryside is still riddled with shafts and mines.
East Williamston Village Hall was opened in June 2000 after being rebuilt following a Lottery Grant from the Halls for the 21st Century fund. It is a single level purpose-built hall which seats 200 people. The management committee are trustees of the building which offers a spacious hall, adjacent meeting room and kitchen. The hall is situated in the village on a quiet side road. It is well signposted. Car parking is limited on site, but there is ample parking around the village lanes. With full disabled access and facilities, it is open for hire to all.
