CLEEVE PRIOR WAR MEMORIAL VILLAGE HALL occupies a building that dates back some 500 years and was originally the malt house for Peacock House Farm. The building was purchased by the village from Farmer Sparrow at the end of the First World War and converted into a Memorial Hall to honour the eleven villagers who lost their lives in The Great War. During the Second World War the Hall was used as a workshop by the Army.
Following the 1977 Jubilee funds were raised to carry out essential refurbishments and improvements. For the Millennium the Hall was extended and refurbished with a grant from the National Lottery Charities Board. The building comprises a large hall, licensed for a maximum of one hundred people and a well equipped kitchen which has recently been upgraded.
There is a ground-floor committee room, which is set up as a Tea Room with a library operating on alternate Wednesday afternoons, and an upstairs committee room. There are toilet and disabled facilities on the ground floor. Wheelchair access was recently installed via the main door. The Hall is used regularly by various village organisations (Bowls Club, Bridge Club, Pre-School, CP Players, WI, Whist Club, Parish Council), and is available for hire.
The Pre-School operates on four mornings a week, with a parent and toddler group on Tuesday mornings.

Ian Robinson - Chairman
Rosemary Perl - Treasurer
Susan Mortimer - Secretary
Caroline Sheen - Entertainments Officer
Chris Nicholson - Technical Officer
Hazel Stewart-Davies - Parish Council Rep

It would be very helpful to the Committee to have some feedback from residents on recent events , and suggestions for the type of entertainment people would enjoy in the future. It is the aim of the Committee to cater for all sections of the parish. To make a suggestion email email@example.com, or speak to any of the Committee members.
In order to offer the best service to the parish, it is vital to have wide representation on the Committee. We would particularly welcome some young parents, and strong men!
We intend to produce a consolidated list of entertainments for the website showing events planned by the Hall, Church, PTA, Heritage Trust, Players, the Kings Arms, and the Village as a whole. We hope this will prevent unfortunate clashes, and also give everyone a chance to enjoy the wide range of activities on offer. There are already many items on the list, but please make sure that Ian Robinson knows if you would like an event included.
Do you want to join the mailing list? Please send details to firstname.lastname@example.org.
