Canford Cliffs Village Hall

17 Ravine Rd, BH13 7HT, Poole, Dorset
£250
Up to 100 guests
ts uses have changed many times over the decades – as have our lives!

The Hall was originally built for the recreation of servants from the surrounding large houses.


During World War II the area siren was located here, so it was usually manned 24 hours a day. Troops used it as a meeting place as it was ideally placed for various wartime aid activities. Even though a bomb was dropped in Spencer Road, the Hall came through the war unscathed.


After the war, people started recognising what its location had to offer. The Women’s Institute met here regularly and there was a kindergarten in the Hall.


In the 1980s the Hall had a facelift and money was raised to renew the old wooden windows, create a proper car park and to generally ensure the Hall structure was safe.


Gradually more people started using the Hall as more activities were introduced and it became part of the Community once again.


In 2004, the Hall underwent another facelift with a new kitchen and cloakrooms with the disabled in mind and a ramp for wheelchairs was added. This was achieved thanks to a generous donation from the Canford Cliffs Land Society.

We’re a core member of the IUCN Species Survival Commission’s Vulture Specialist Group (VSG); a growing global partnership of more than 60 specialists working together towards vulture conservation. As a member of the conservation consortium Save Asia’s Vultures from Extinction (SAVE), we’re able to work towards the prevention of the poisoning of vultures and help create Vulture Safe Zones in south Asia.
