The Leintwardine Centre is made up of three separate buildings:
The Community Centre
The Community Centre is housed in the former Victorian Village school and was reopened in 2011 after extensive refurbishment.
The Reading Room
The Reading Room was built in 1887 to house a library and reading room for the benefit of villagers. It now houses the Leintwardine Community Library and the Leintwardine History Visitor Centre and Office.
Both buildings have been completely refurbished to a high standard and offer flexible, attractive accommodation. Both have ramp access and are wheelchair-friendly. The Community Centre is also equipped with a disabled toilet and an induction loop system for the hard of hearing. There is on-site parking for up to 14 cars.
The Old School Room
This was originally the infant school, from which pupils progressed to the ‘big school’ next door. After years of gradual decline and neglect following closure of the school in the 1970s, the building was fully refurbished in 2019. It is currently rented out but in the future may be best suited to more informal or potentially ‘dirty’ uses, such as children’s parties or art and craft use. If you have an exhibition to stage, or want to run an art or craft course, or just have somewhere more roomy to work on your latest craft project, then this may – in the future – be the space for you!
If you’re considering booking a room or renting an office, please contact the Bookings Officer on 01547 540593 or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange a visit.
