Codsall Village Hall and Playing Fields Charity Limited
Codsall Village Hall opened in 1964, after a struggle lasting over twenty years to
get the money together.
The hall is very fortunate to have playing fields on two sides, a car park with 86
spaces, as well as bus stops near the gateway. We can boast a very attractive setting,
though the surrounding trees are a mixed blessing...
We had a celebration of our golden anniversary in 2014, including a ‘Calendar Girls’
calendar involving our users. This occasion proved, beyond doubt, the regard in which
the venue is held, with almost all the regular hiring groups joining us to showcase
Regular not-for-profit hirers include four different art classes, a dramatic society,
a cricket club, Gardening and History societies, the Townswomen’s Guild and RSPB,
a whist drive, and a knitting group.
Classes run as a business include Pilates, Baby Sensory and Tumble Tots, an afternoon
tea dance. And the National Blood Service uses our facilities.
Groups and individuals use the building and its grounds to raise money by holding
dances, concerts, plays, fairs, sales and hugely successful Beer Festival and a Christmas
Parties and receptions also bring in income.
We have an average footfall of 1000 people a week.
There has been a fairly stable committee running the building over the years, with
a steady turnover of volunteers, usually as a result of old age!
The present Committee has representatives of user groups and the Parish Council,
plus three elected members and two co-opted members.
Over the years the committee has undertaken many projects to improve facilities at
the hall including; an extension to our pavilion and changing rooms, tarmac and lighting
for the car park, a kitchen re-fit, security measures, provision of a toilet for
the disabled, and refit of the ladies toilets.
All these projects have been achieved through our own fundraising efforts and grant
aid from a variety of sources, including; Staffordshire County Council, South Staffordshire
Council, Codsall Parish Council, Awards for All, the Local Members Fund, Veolia,
the Police and Crime Commissioner’s Fund, Homeserve and the local Co-op
The next project that we will be embarking upon is the refurbishment of the gents

Anslow Village Hall
Our hall is well used and we have managed to obtain grants to install cavity wall
insulation and one double glazed door. We funded the other double glazed door ourselves
and since these changes have had many comments on the warmth of the hall.
