Staverton Club have reached a milestone this month as it is celebrating its centenary.

Members have been working to put on events to celebrate 100 years of social events in the village.

The club over the decades has had an interesting history.

The community hall, purchased as a wooden hut from the Red Cross for £100 after the First World War, was erected on a plot of land near the railway. The Staverton Reading Rooms, as it was known, were opened in 1919 after being furnished by the villagers thanks to fund raising and donations and it became the 'social hub of the village'.

Over the decades the wooden structures of the club began to deteriorate, the then committee set about raising funds to replace the wooden huts with a modern club building and a stone structure was planned. By 1974 enough money was raised, and a stone structure built.

Today it is known as Staverton Club and it has two full size snooker tables and a skittle alley and members continue to take part in local leagues.

Fun events such as quizzes and bingo are held regularly. The club is keen to attract new members and new committee members to help run it now and in the future.

Today the club is described as a Club for the Community with a busy diary for the winter months Further Events will be published in the Club and on Facebook.

Club secretary Andrew Harding said: "It’s important for a village to have its own social centre and we want to build on the success it has had over the years and maintain its social standing for the future.”
