The Jessie Hughes Village Hall
Following the demolition of the old hall the new Jessie Hughes Village Hall was opened last year. The origins of the old hall go back to 1925 when Jessie Hughes who was the wife of the rector of Tarporley and the first President of the Eaton WI joined a committee to raise funds for a village meeting place. Mrs Hughes turned out to be the driving force behind the fundraising and when the hall was being built in 1926 she was asked to lay the foundation stone. This she did with a silver trowel carrying a suitable inscription. This hall was called the Eaton Village Institute but, when Mrs Hughes died, it was renamed to The Jessie Hughes Institute.
