Hello and welcome to the website of the Leintwardine Village Hall and Community Centre (known as the Leintwardine Centre for short).
Due to the Coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic, all activities at the Centre have been suspended till further notice. Community support and information is available. Please see the extended April edition of What’s On for details. You can also download a pdf version of What’s On.
Leintwardine is a village in north Herefordshire, population around 400 souls, about 8 miles from the delightful town of Ludlow.
So what is the Leintwardine Centre? In short, it’s three buildings – the former village school (comprising the Main Hall and the Old School Room behind) and the next door Reading Room (see About The Centre for more history) – which have been converted into the village’s community centre. Together these buildings offer
a large hall with room for 90 plus (Main Hall)
a 35-seater meeting room (Reading Room)
a large room for general use, which can be used in conjunction with the lawn at the rear (Old School Room)
All have their own catering facilities. Office space is also available for rent.
It is home to a surprising variety of regular activities, from Pilates classes to lazy lunches for older residents of the village, not to mention Flicks in the Sticks (our local cinema!) and the Leintwardine Players, the village’s AmDram group. It’s also the base of the Leintwardine History Society, a thriving group devoted to studying the very long and rich history of the village – known as Bravonium to the Romans – and the surrounding district.
The Reading Room is also home to the Leintwardine Community Library.
