Rockingham’s oldest resident Georgina Champion, 93, cut the ribbon and declared its new-look village hall opened.
It has been refurbished with £350,000 from the Heritage Lottery Fund and was officially re-opened at the weekend.
The former Victorian school is used for community events, including badminton.
It now boasts an extension and a new kitchen and toilets for the disabled.
After the opening ceremony, guests enjoyed a buffet and had time to enjoy the village flower show.
