WELCOME TO CARBROOKE VILLAGE HALL

Set in the heart of a lovely Norfolk Village and overlooking the beautiful Millennium Green, Carbrooke Village Hall is a traditional meeting place for the whole of the village as well as a perfect venue available for hire for events like parties, meetings and weddings. The Hall underwent some substantial improvements back in 2019 and now boasts a fully refurbished lobby, toilets, kitchen and a new disabled toilet. In 2023 we installed a new digital projector and screen.

The Hall has a programme of regular events including a coffee morning, craft group and yoga as well as a calendar of regular social events such as music nights. Please check our What's On page for the latest information.

In 2022 the Hall was able to secure a Grant form the Heritage Lottery Fund to convert the attached portacabin to a History and Heritage centre  which was launched at the Christmas bazaar at the end of the year. For more information about the Heritage Centre please visit the History and Heritage page.

REGULAR CLUBS AND CLASSES

We currently have regular clubs and classes using the hall – including a coffee morning, yoga and a craft group that meets every two weeks on a Friday morning but we are looking to set up more. Following on from the popular Carbrooke Gardeners page on Facebook we are hoping to restart a gardening Club (there was one at the Hall until it folded several years ago.) At the Coronation tea we were also made aware of the needs of many of our older residents so we are working with the church and other organisations to launch a lunch club and a warm space for the winter for those that need it.

NEWS & EVENTS

New Roof Update:  Unfortunately, there has been an unexpected delay with the manufacture of the roof panels. Red Dog Construction, who is carrying out the work on the hall, had been told by the supplier when organizing the quote for the roof that the panels would take around seven days to make and deliver.  Once the order was put in, it has emerged that the supplier has a shortage of material to manufacture the panels and now have said that it will take four weeks to deliver.  Red Dog has assured us that the panels will be delivered to them on 23 April and work will commence on 24 April.  As a result, the hall will now be open until 24th during the daytime.  All very frustrating and we can only apologize for the disruption this has caused to those wanting to use the hall.

 

 

VILLAGE FETE UPDATE

"The village groups hoping to organise the 2024 fete have reluctantly decided that the event will no longer be able to go ahead this year because of the complexities of organising such an event."

Roof update: The wet weather and an issue with the cutting and supply of the new roofing has meant that the work on the roof will run into next week Beginning 8 April). Apologies for this but it will mean that the hall will not be open next week during the daytime so there will be no Wednesday coffee morning and yoga will be moving to the Community Hub at Blenheim Grange on Thursday morning. ...

As said above why on earth wasn't there a general meeting to recruit helpers from in and around the village? A very poor show to just cancel the event due to "complexities" without stating what these were. How can anybody learn from this if there is no information given on what the issues were? I don't understand the Village Hall committee at all, they seem to have no regard for the village whatsoever and have no accountability for their poor actions. No one seems to know what goes on within committee meetings as there is never any details on meetings or even minutes from what i can see. So how is anyone supposed to know what is going on and how the committee in place to serve the village is conducting themselves? By all accounts this committee has done nothing over the years but alienate the majority of residents in Carbrooke, so maybe it is time for the current committee to stand down before the damage caused is irreversible.

I wasn't aware there was yet another "committee." Why didn't this committee organise a meeting to assess people's interest in the Fete and identify volunteers? With the numerous committees in the village, surely something could have been arranged. Those who caught the posts before deletion were eagerly anticipating the Fete. There's no shortage of skilled and committed individuals in the village capable of organising such an event. However, with the Hall committee failing to connect with the community, villagers are once again left feeling let down.
