Valuable asset to the community. Spilsby Franklin hall, which was originally known as the Drill Hall, was built in 1899 for the 7th Spilsby Rifle Volunteer Corps. This organisation had been formed in 1860. The building had housing for Sergeant instructors and had a long rifle range annex down the west side of the building. The main hall was similar to that of today. In the early 1900s the army nationally replaced the Rifle Volunteer Corps with the Territorial Army Battalions and in 1912 “C” company of the 5th Territorial Battallion of Lincolnshire was based in the Drill hall. From here it was mobilised when WW1 was declared in 1914. During the great war Spilsby Drill hall was used as a Red Cross hospital, manned by volunteer nurses caring for wounded soldiers.
We use this hall for all large party great value
