Coffee Shop

Community Coffee Shop

The aroma of Bacon Rolls wafting through the village is mouth-watering the first Monday of every month! Together with a wide variety of coffees & other drinks, a selection of delicious cakes, crumpets & teacakes, it is proving very popular indeed. Would you like to join us and become part of this vibrant fun-loving Community? If so, then please think about becoming a member of the Committee, or put your name on the “Friend of the Hall” volunteer rota and join the gang!

Clifton Campville - 30 August, 2021 - what a historic day!


We revealed our historic Village Hall after 2 years of renovations (we started packing up the old Village Hall in August 2019!) making it now “Fit for Purpose”, for many more years to come. The transformation is truly amazing – where did all that space come from?


The event we chose was the ‘Grand Reopening’ of the Community Coffee Shop.

The crowd gathered in anticipation. The excitement rose as Pat Moore (Chair) thanked the Committee members & Trustees (past & present) for all their hard work. None of this would have been possible without the tireless fundraising by the Trustees. Plus, grants obtained from 3 major funding bodies but also, the generous giving by our villagers and supporters. All this culminating in this momentous day - especially as it was achieved during a pandemic!


The Ribbon Cutting ceremony followed, with a ‘Village Celebrity’ (Dee Littleford - the oldest Cliftonian) thanking everyone who has helped to make this transformation happen, for us and future generations. She also paid tribute to the valued village residents we’ve lost, over those 2 years. Judging by the level of noise & chatter as villagers met up again with neighbours & friends, it was well worth the wait for such comfortable surroundings. Keep watching the video (link below) to see our lovely hall coming alive again, as residents flocked inside for a drink and scrumptious cakes. Well done one and all – and here’s to the next chapter of Clifton Campville Village Hall!


Thank you to Vaughan Taylor - our ‘Official Photographer’ of the day - who did a fantastic job of capturing this historic event – check out the video he took by 'copying & pasting' this YouTube link in a web browser:


Coffee Shop the early days

BACON MONDAY - FEBRUARY 2020

As you can see from the photos, it was another bumper day at the ‘Coffee Shop’ Bacon Monday - yesterday. At one point, standing room only!!

If you’ve not been to our temporary home at Haunton Church Hall yet, don’t forget we are there every Monday (9-12) – so why not grab a friend and come & join the ‘Coffee Shoppers’!

And remember - Bacon Monday is the 1st Monday of EVERY month!

Coffee Shop ARMISTICE DAY 2019 at Haunton Church Hall

The Church Hall was filled with emotion on Monday - 11 November Armistice Day at 11am as Dee kindly recited a

poignant poem (written by her late husband) to another full-house, which fell silent to honour the War Dead

and listen to ‘The Last Post’. Lest We Forget.

If you have not visited us at our temporary home at Haunton Church Hall (9-12) every Monday - then grab a friend & pop along.

The Bacon Rolls (first Monday of every month) are proving a huge hit, even pulling in people from surrounding villages.

Together with the wide variety of coffees & other drinks, delicious cakes, crumpets and teacakes, it is growing very popular indeed.

See you soon!

Yes, it’s that time of year when our thoughts start to turn to the Country Fair and a ‘Call to Arms’ shouted from the marquee roofs.

This year the village Community Coffee Shop, is running the Cake Stall at the Country Fair. In the main, our Star Bakers for the Coffee Shop, plus a few others, have already volunteered to make & donate a wide selection of cakes, which is marvellous and we thank you all. If anyone else wants to make a cake it will be gratefully received - ideally Pat Moore would love to know ahead of the day so that she can plan (see contact details below).

We also want to ensure that all of the servers of crepes, drinks, ice creams, cakes and sandwiches have enough time to enjoy the Country Fair too. We already have a good number of volunteers but do need more , ideally for 2 hour slots. However, if you can only give 1 hour of your time that would be greatly appreciated too. It would also be great to see some younger people (over 14) help in some way -so please volunteer and get involved in your village Country Fair, you won’t regret it!

If we all pitch in and share the load we can all help to make it a fantastic day.
