The Village Hall has become a vital part of village life for clubs, societies, meetings, private functions and village events and continues as busy as ever for all ages of the community.  

Carbrooke Playgroup has been using the village hall as its premises since 1970’s, originally as a parent led group, with the addition of Parent and Toddlers' during 1980's, now it offers full 'wrap around care' for children aged 2 to school age.

Carbrooke Village Social Club, With the closure of the village pubs, Carbrooke lacked such an amenity for many years, but during 1990’s the Village Club, installed a ‘snug’and opened a bar to overcome this. As the building aged and maintenance becoming more difficult, an attempt was made to fund a new building, unfortunately this has had to be put on hold for the time being,
