Teign Valley Community Hall

Teign Valley Community Hall is situated in Dartmoor's beautiful Teign Valley on the east side of the village of Christow.
 

It is suitable for weddings and large functions, indoor sports and activities, fairs, markets, conferences and meetings.

About the Hall

Teign Valley Community Hall was built in 1998 for the people of Ashton, Bridford, Christow, Doddiscombsleigh and Trusham and it is owned and run by that community. It is a charity, number 1072211, which owns the hall in trust for the community. It is run by a group of unpaid volunteers, the hall management committee, who are also trustees of the TVCH charity.

The Hall is entirely self-financing. All running costs and routine repairs are met from hire income. For major works, we save up a reserve, raise funds from the community and apply for grants from the National Lottery Fund and elsewhere. Much of the maintenance work is done for free by community volunteers and many hours of unpaid time by our caretaker, Dave Cole.

 

While we do pay for weekly cleaning, we do not employ any staff. That means we can keep hire costs to a minimum but we do rely on hirers and community volunteers to keep the building clean, tidy, safe and secure.

"We all just wanted to say a massive thank you for hiring out all the hall to us today. It was the perfect place to have a kids party and so many people said what a great venue it was with such good facilities. Little man had the best party especially with last year being such a washout."

 (Emma, 2021)

 

"We had a wonderful day away at TCVH yesterday and the venue worked so well for our day! It was great to see the improvements you’ve made to the building, the acoustic panels really made a big difference for us (along with the dishwasher!)" (Exeter Network Church, 2021)
