Hollabury Mission Hall
The land for the Hollabury Mission Hall, Poughill, was purchased on 10th November, 1908 with money (£120) provided by Maria Somes, from the Bude Land and Building Company Limited, and conveyed to Rev T.W. Lemon, the then incumbent of the Living of Poughill (St Olaf’s) “for the purpose of a site for the erection of a Mission Hall or Mission Church or Schools for the maintenance in perpetuity of Protestant and Evangelical Principles”.
After the death of Rev Lemon in December 1919, the land and the building (which by this time had been erected) were passed to the new Trustees of the Living, the Church Association Trust (who had become a trustee of the Living of Poughill). Church Association Trust was renamed Church Society Trust in 1950.
Over the years the building has been used on and off for many activities, including Sunday services and children's meetings. Hollabury Road where the Mission Hall is situated, is at Flexbury end of the parish of Poughill.
