Stanton is a small village in East Staffordshire. It is in a rural setting close to Ashbourne, Leek and Uttoxeter and is popular with walkers. The Gilbert Sheldon Hall is the former school building which now serves the community as a meeting place accessible to all.
After the school closed in 1983 the village was without a meeting room for 3 years. Parish Council meetings and the Annual Parish Meeting were held in the Church. In 1987 the Lichfield Diocesan Trust gave the village permission to use the former school building. A village hall committee was formed which with the help and guidance of Rural Development Field Workers and officers from East Staffordshire District Council, worked towards securing the long term use of the school buildings as a village hall. After extensive alterations and refurbishment the official opening took place in September.
The management and maintenance of the hall is entirely funded through efforts of the Village Hall Committee who encourage its use for social and entertainment purposes.
