Bonnie's Bar

We run our own bar available for use at any event if required.

Bonnie's Bar - so called as the land the Community Centre is built on used to belong to Bonnie Down, a local Hatherleigh farming character who used to farm sheep.  It is still very much a family affair today as his daughter Jill looks after the Centre's accounts and her husband Kevin is the Caretaker.  It is a fitting tribute to Bonnie and his family to have the bar named after him.  Cheers Bonnie!
