The Freemen Of Hale Village


Each year, the Freemen hold several fundraising events, such as the Ascot Race Day at Hale Hall Gardens, and the Valentines evening in the Village Hall! Funds raised by the Freemen, are distributed back into the village - to village groups and organisations. Any group or organisation - charitable or non charitable, can apply for a Freemens Grant/Donation.

The grant/donation must not be towards funding a bill and/or debt, but an item the group can use long term and that will benefit the group/organisation.

Groups or organisations who feel they need such a donation - must identify a specific item they require or need, it may be a broken piece of equipment or a new piece of equipment. When applying for a Freemens Grant/Donation, it is required that a full set of accounts are presented with the application!


The list below shows just a number of the village groups/organisations that have applied for and received a Freemens Grant/Donation:

*St. Mary's Church, Hale with Halebank

*Hale Juniors football club

*Hale FC

*Hale Youth Centre

*Hale Village Hall

*Hale Carnival

*Wellington Bowling Club

*Mersey Wave choir

*Halebank Youth Club


The Freemen of Hale are chosen each year, from people of the community of Hale and Halebank, who have given back to the community a service or who have helped in some way that is beneficial to the community and it's people. It is then, that a person is nominated/elected to be a Freemen, for their long service in the community.

Many of the older Freemen still help out with many events in the village, from Hale Carnival, Golfing Tournaments, Christmas Celebrations, Ascot Race Day and along with being involved with helping out many other village organisations.
