A hall commemorates those who served in World War Two.  A plaque on the exterior front wall lists 10 names.

Community effort in the tiny farming centre of Selbourne, six miles from Hagley, has raised more than £2,000 to build a War Memorial Hall. The hall is being built in the  heart of the district, on a block of land sheltered by mature fir trees. On Wednesday, voluntary helpers erected the frames for the walls and partitions in the hall. The frames had been built by a contractor for the War Memorial Hall Committee and the working bee erected them in an hour and a quarter. Funds for building the hall have been raised almost entirely from the sale of stock, crops, and wool. The committee, consisting of nine farmers, was formed eight years ago.
