Local Community


Our local community covers Melbury Abbas, Cann and Cann Common. This community has organised many wonderful events over the years, to celebrate events such as harvest supper, bonfire night, burns night and the Queen's Diamond Jubilee.

Melbury Abbas and Cann  has a well maintained Village Hall which started life as an army hut. Now with a fully licensed bar, it is the only place in the villages where social events can take place. It is managed by a Committee of all Hall users who ensure that this vital facility is available at all times. Over the years, it has seen meetings of the WI, the Village Produce Association, Flower Shows, Pantomimes, parties, quizzes, wedding feasts and many other types of village gatherings. which are advertised on the village hall and Spreadeagle websites, which can be found on our links page.
