Venue Hire

We have a number of rooms available for the public to hire for their own events and activities. Please see below for more information on how to book these.

Forches Community Centre

We have a unique community centre available to hire in Barnstaple. The centre comes complete with kitchen and bathroom facilities, so it makes a great space for meetings, birthday parties, events or community groups.

You can hire the Community Centre at just £9.50 per hour or for a children’s party four hours can be hired for £30.

To book you just need to contact Tracey Williams on 01271 313384 or email [email protected].


Although restrictions nationally have been lifted, North Devon Homes are extremely concerned about the high rates locally and our main concern is keeping residents as safe as possible so have made the decision to not hire the hall to any external organisation, group or for public parties.  

We will not be taking any provisional bookings or definite bookings until we deem it safe to do so. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

Common Rooms

The common rooms at our sheltered schemes are a resource that can be enjoyed by customers and the wider community. Common rooms are available to all customers living on a scheme to hold events; however, the rooms can also be hired by local community groups.

Currently, across our schemes our common rooms are used for bingo sessions, coffee mornings, memory cafes, breakfast clubs, lunches prepared by students from Petroc, Cinema Club, bell ringing and theatre groups.

We have common rooms available to hire in Barnstaple and Ilfracombe. Our rooms are bright and modern, and all have fully equipped kitchens.

Morning, afternoon and evening hire slots are available from £20 per session. To check availability or book a venue please contact the Independent Living Team on 01271312500 or by emailing [email protected]
