Cotebrook Villagers are proud to have been privileged enough to benefit from the use of a village hall, enabling the community and individuals to meet and socialise. Following 80 years of use, the current committee embarked upon a rejuvenation programme to enable the hall to provide up to date, warm and practical facilities. In 2019, following a series of fund raising events and approaches to Lottery and Grant providers, a total sum of £350,000 has been raised enabling the rebuilding of front façade and the subsequent updating of the main hall and stage areas.
Facilities now include a large modern kitchen capable of catering up to 90 guests. Underfloor heating throughout ensures that attending guests are warm and cosy whilst facilities for the less abled are now current and fit for purpose in the 21st century.
The hall is now one of the few community buildings in Cheshire that provides a large and open stage, which is suitable for performances of plays, choirs, orchestras/bands as well as business presentations. Audience and seating capacity is to a maximum of 90 in the main hall, whilst two additional rooms offer space for smaller groups, celebrations, anniversaries and parties. The Building is located less than 500m from the easily accessible A49 which in turn has greater ease of access from the M56 and M6 motorway junctions. Disabled and car parking spaces to the front offer ample parking whilst to the rear there is a larger car park allowing for 25+ vehicles. If caravanning/ barbeques or an outdoor function is required these can also be catered for as safe, well enclosed and well maintained grounds extend to approximately 1 acre.
The Hall is situated less than 100 m from the well maintained, distinctive and distinguished listed building of St John’s Church and so the hall is a suitable venue for wedding, christening and funeral receptions. If you wish to discuss packages for your big event or want the ease of organising a fun event then please contact us and we will be only too glad to meet with you to discuss your preferred options and show you around our facilities.
The place of Cotebrook Village Hall, in serving its community and residents in Cheshire, is today as relevant as it was when it was originally conceived.
