The village of Kirkwhelpington is located on the River Wansbeck, some 21 km northwest of Hexham, in the county of Northumberland, which lies in the North East of England. The village dates back to the Middle Ages and was supposed to become a bustling market town but this venture never quite took off and the enterprising local lord of the manor, Gilbert de Umfraville, had to content himself with building a bridge across the river instead. This, at least, made local residents life a little easier, as they could now trade with other parts of Northumberland.
The early 20th century Memorial Hall in the heart of the village has many functions; it serves as the Post Office and hosts a variety of events and meetings, including monthly get-togethers by the Royal British Legion Women’s Section and the Parish Council. A Bowls Club, a Youth Club, a Toddler Group and an Art Club also meet regularly at the Memorial Hall.
If you attended a regular event at the Memorial Hall, you’d expect from the people responsible for its upkeep to keep you and your children safe. Naturally, if a gust of wind blew a roof tile off the roof in a storm, you could not claim somebody else’s negligence was responsible for your head injury, as this would have been an act of nature nobody could possibly foresee. But if you are injured in an accident where somebody else’s action or lack of action caused it, you could have grounds to make an accident injury claim.
