A village bar which is run entirely by volunteers is appealing for more people to help out and support them.

The Tannery Bar, at Claverham Village Hall, is open for business with plenty of events coming up.

Claverham Village Enterprises (CVE) is the limited company run by volunteers, established and owned by Claverham Village Hall to operate the Tannery Bar.

Each year the bar hosts events for the village and donates its profits directly back to the village hall, in Bishops Road.

Since 2016, Claverham Village Enterprises has donated more than £93,000 back to the village hall in addition to paying rent and other operational charge contributions.

It is open seven days a week from 7-11 pm Monday to Saturday and on Sunday's from noon to 3pm.
