Charfield Village Hall and Playing Fields

NEW DATE: January 18th 7pm: AND THEN THEY CAME FOR ME

NEW DATE ANNOUNCED!

A unique experience…a multimedia play that combines videotaped interviews with Holocaust survivors Eva Schloss and Ed Silverberg, with live actors recreating scenes from their lives as teenagers during WW ll.

Part oral history, part drama action, part remembrance, this play by James Still brings to life what happened after The Diary of Anne Frank ends. The ensemble-driven play breaks new ground and has been acclaimed by audiences and critics in world-wide productions.

PLEASE COME ALONG TO SUPPORT THE HALL

Please note this event is only suitable for children aged 12+.

Tickets available from Charfield Petrol Station, and online: http://bit.ly/AndTheyCameForMe 

NEW DATE: January 18th 7pm: AND THEN THEY CAME FOR ME

Keep fit and have fun!

Love rugby but want to play a non-contact form of the game?

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!

During the winter 2019/20 we're playing on the KLB Astroturf from 8pm to 9pm.

From May 2020 we play on the Village Hall field on MONDAY evenings from 6.30pm to 7.30pm.

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.
