Support from your local CoOp will help pay for replacement of the partition soon.The Hall has been chosen for the Co-op Local Community Fund. The funding runs to 27 October 2018. If you are a member, please go on-line to and select Sturminster Marshall Memorial Hall as the local cause to support. Every time you shop at the Co-op, the Hall will benefit. 1% of all money spent at the Co-op on selected own-brand products and services goes to the Co-op Local Community Fund. This has been a significant money-spinner for the Hall. The more we shop at the Co-op, the more the Hall benefits and Co-op has also given us an equal share of the money they raise from sales of carrier bags. Many thanks to the CoOp and all who have supported the Hall through purchases at the local store. If you are not a member of the CoOp yet, please apply at to earn cash back for yourself and the Hall, thank you.
