Village Hall

 Committee

Clifton Campville Village Hall was bequeathed to the village by the late Major Richard Reed for use as a community meeting place. A registered charity, it is vested in a Trust representing the church and the village, but day to day management of the building is conducted by a management committee. 

The age of the building is unknown, but changes in the brickwork indicate that the structure has been altered many times, suggesting a variety of uses during its history. Certainly at one time it was used as a barn. However for many years the building was used as the village school, with the schoolmaster living in the adjoining house.

 The school house passed into private hands some years ago but both the house and the hall have been restored recently. The Village Hall has been re-roofed, the electrics and heating modernised, and a modern kitchen installed. As a result it is now a comfortable, attractive and much sought-after venue for both community and private functions.

 Each year the Management Committee produces a programme of activities that have proved to be popular including quiz nights, skittle contests, and theatre shows. Every quarter a themed supper night is held, for example Burns Night, Italian night or Indian night – all with appropriate menu, music and entertainment. Please see the Village Diary for details.

 In addition other village organisations use the hall for their own meetings and activities, and the excellent kitchen facility has brought the building into demand for private parties such as wedding receptions and children’s birthday celebrations.

 Clifton Campville Parish Council makes a regular generous contribution to the upkeep of the Village Hall and our County Councillor has made a number of grants, but most of the funding comes from the events run by the committee.

 Members of the public are invited to attend the Annual General Meeting in autumn to hear reports on the activities of the Management Committee, the financial situation, and especially to make suggestions for programme items or other activities.
