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
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.
