Doors Open - 2.30pm, starts at 3pm

Mr Middle has created a predictable life of routine for himself and his loyal dog, Shackleton. Together they enjoy simple walks and evenings in, but Shackleton longs for more adventure. Mr Middle keeps his world as small as possible, but one day the garden gate is left ajar…

Voluntary Vacancy: Financial Trustee/Treasurer

Charfield Memorial Hall is looking for a new volunteer Financial Trustee to oversee the work of our Financial Administrator.

You will NOT be handling any of the day to day financial issues/management, this role is strictly to oversee/support our paid Financial Administrator who does all of this day to day work.

As a member of the committee you will also take an active role in decision making at bi-monthly meetings, and in the development of the Village Hall as a central community hub.

To express an interest in either of these roles please contact Liam now on 07496 862532 or liam.balloch@gmail.com.



Old ITV programme about the Charfield Railway Crash 1928

Locals sharing memories at the Railway Tavern Pub in Charfield. People interviewed: Mrs Hazel, then "Jibby' Jones, then Reginald Pagett.

Thanks to Graham Tyndall for sharing this with us.

"It was broadcast on ITV many years ago and they kindly sent me a video of the program.
My father is in the video talking about the lady in black and the children's shoes. He worked on the railway in 
Charfield as a Ganger and we lived in a cottage just below the Plough Inn.
When the cottages were demolished we moved to Charfield Green on the corner right next to the railway line."

More information about the disaster.

Touch Rugby - keep fit on the Charfield Playing Fields!

Touch Rugby is a fantastic sport for keeping fit and allows men & women of all abilities to take to the field together.

You don't have to have had any rugby experience at all to play. It's also great fun!

We play on a Monday night from 6:30pm until 7:30pm, at the Charfield Playing Fields behind the Village Hall.

Please text 07970853871 if you're interested and we'll put you on the list for session updates.
