ABOUT THE HALL
The Creech St Michael Village Hall was built in 1988 and is located in the centre of the village. It is run by a Management Committee made up of local Volunteers who work long hours to ensure the Hall is kept in tiptop condition. Our aim is to continue to provide a safe warm and inviting facility for the benefit of all our local community in a number of different ways.
The main hall, more recently re-named the Chown Hall demonstrates the cruck beam construction which gives the hall its high ceiling.
The Cartwright Room is adjacent to the Chown Hall and both areas were in regular and frequent use throughout the years prior to the Covid-19 pandemic serving a range of village activities, a variety of clubs and increasingly, as venues for celebratory parties and wedding receptions. Since the easement of all the Covid restrictions the Halls have seen an influx of new and vibrant groups and activities.
There is one other room, on the first floor, that was used mostly at week-ends for youth religious classes. Now this room is used as a hub, giving the local community police a regular presence in the village. This room is also available to book for small groups.
Whilst the hall has been closed a large programme of refurbishment has taken place. The Toilet facilities have been updated and a new disabled toilet installed.
The Cartwright Room now has its own facilities, you no longer need to dash out in the rain for a comfort break! and a small kitchenette is available to make hot drinks.
There are now a unisex toilet with baby changing facilities.
The kitchen has been refitted and equipped.
A State of the Art Audio Visual system has being installed which will allow film nights, corporate events and many other activities to take place.

A NOTE FROM COMMITTEE CHAIRPERSON JAN KING:
I was elected to the committee when Robert Harris the previous chair moved away. Since taking over the Chair many things have happened at the Hall. We have been improving the facilities which are still ongoing, and we have had to cope with a full shut down due to the Covid Pandemic.
There has also been a new venture set up. A produce Market, crafts, second hand books and a café which meets regularly selling locally produced fruit and veg, home made jams and chutneys and cakes. There are many mouth-watering products available to buy plus really healthy garden plants and flowers. These Markets are now moving to a regular slot and will be available on a monthly basis from the 18th September. The white banner will be displayed outside the building on the week leading up to the Market.
