Catbrook Memorial Hall and COVID-19
In accordance with the Wales Government’s pandemic regulations (alert level 4) the Hall must remain closed for the foreseeable future which is disappointing for everyone in our community. Like everyone else, the Trustees are regularly watching for updates and changes to the regulations to establish if and when it is possible to reopen.
In the meantime, we can continue with food deliveries to the Hall – for more information on this and other services such as the Catbrook Book Box reading scheme please click on the links — and return here regularly.
The closure has been a very sad twelve months in the hall’s one-hundred-year history but it is hoped, with the progress that has been made with the Lockdown and vaccinations, that a brighter future is ahead. You may be assured that, as soon as it is allowed and practicable, our Hall will reopen — and the fun and benefit we all enjoy can continue for at least another hundred years.

Supporting local children and young people with learning and development grants
The Catbrook Educational Trust (CET) was launched in 2004 after a group of residents from the Catbrook community fought to get the proceeds from the sale of the Catbrook School put into Trust for the children of Catbrook. The Trust was active for some years, but hasn’t been able to distribute any grants in recent years. The capital has been carefully protected and with a new board of Trustees we are now in a position to re-launch the CET.
The Trust was set up with the aim of supporting the education (including social and physical training) of young people under the age of 25, who are or have been resident in the catchment area of the former Catbrook School. This area includes the villages of Catbrook, Broadstone, Whitelye, Parkhouse, Trellech Grange, Cicelyford and Botany Bay.
Applications for grants will open after the Easter holidays 2021 and will close at the end of June; with funds being sent to successful applicants in August, ready for the new school year.
