Hello and welcome to the website of the Leintwardine Village Hall and Community Centre (known as the Leintwardine Centre for short).
Activities at the Centre have recommenced following the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
Leintwardine is a village in north Herefordshire, population around 900 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) – now housing the Community Library and Leintwardine History Society.
- a large room for general use, which can be used in conjunction with the lawn at the rear (Old School Room) – currently rented.
All have their own catering facilities. Office space is available for rent.
The Centre 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.
The Reading Room houses the Leintwardine Community Library and is 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.
