Comments: In February 1922, a document records the purchase of land with conditions that required a building to be erected as a Reading Room Club and Village Institute for general purpose use of all residents in Pant. That document also established the name “Pant War Memorial Institute” with management and control of the premises vested in The Management Committee. This Committee was to consist of the Trustees plus other members to be elected annually by residents of Pant. The land was purchased for £50 from Brady Last of Llynclys Hill, who had owned it since 1908. The five founding trustees were William Elias Morris, Frederick Lowe, John Rogers, Henry William Eyton Leslie (the aforementioned Colonel) and Alfred Arthur Kynaston. Although the original building was furnished as a Reading Room, Billiard Room and Club/Institute for the use by residents of Pant, the Management Committee could determine other similar public purposes. The village held all sorts of events to raise funds to keep the building going. It has been known as “The Institute”, “Pant Memorial Hall” or just ‘the Village Hall’.
