Unfortunately due to the new lockdown restrictions implemented from Thursday 5th November we are closing the Village Hall and Snooker Hall until the restrictions are lifted. Fingers crossed this is just until the beginning of December when we shall look forward to welcoming our exercise and small group classes back – again!!

The Library is closed for browsing and borrowing but the select/collect and home delivery services will still be operating as will access to the IT service. The latter is by appointment only, it includes use of a computer and/or photocopier. Please contact 01609 536547 admin@gargravelibrary.co.uk for details of all the Library services including membership.

The Village Hall has hundreds of books for sale, very reasonably priced 50p paperbacks and £1.00 hardbacks.
