Crowcombe Village Hall - Party Venue
This is not just a Village Hall...    ...This is an ideal venue for a kids party
It’s chucking it down with rain (as usual). The kids are bored silly and getting under your feet. You are running out of ideas to keep them occupied (no, they are too young - to send to sea). Taking them out usually costs an arm and a leg - four ice creams will put you back a fiver.
So - why don’t you mums gang together and hire the Hall for an afternoon.

Bring your toasties to knock up the kid’s lunches, a few bottles of squash and a couple of packs of ice-cream (there is a  freezer to keep it cold) and let the fun and games commence.  Kids karaoke, french cricket, beetle drive, blind man’s buff, musical chairs, pass the parcel... and if it stops raining open the doors to the terrace and they can tear around outside for a bit. They would wander home tired and happy... and covered in mud!
