Goffs Oak’s Village Memorial Hall was opened in 1957.

A pre-fabricated structure, it was built using the money raised by the Goffs Oak village War Memorial Committee, along with money provided by the district council, who maintain the hall.

Constructed at a similar time was the Comrades Club, which is situated next to the Village Hall. It replaced a wooden building on a site closer to the War Memorial. This original Comrades Club was formed in 1925 for ex-servicemen of the First World War.

  • My father, Harry Winter, was secretary of the Goff’’s Oak Comrades Club from the 1940’s in the old wooden Club House through the new built Club House next to the Village Hall until the early 1980’s when he moved to live with us in Holland on Sea. He was also Hon. Sec. of the local Horticultural Society winning many medals for his fruit and vegetables. We lived in The Drive opposite the Hansen’s ,the Dodd,s the Burley’s and next door to Rod & Phil White and many good friends and neighbours. My good wishes to all of the new residents of Goff’s Oak , it was a fabulous place to grow up and call “ my home “

  • Is now known as the GO Hub. No longer are parties taking place regulated – it’s now noisy and car park gets full of drunk idiots with apparently no one held accountable!
    Lived in Goffs Oak my whole life and I am so disappointed with the council and how much of a decline there is in the area.
