Guarlford Village Hall
Guarlford Village Hall can be hired at very reasonable rates. Situated in an old malthouse it has been a village hall since 1922 and a registered charity since 1949, all achieved by Guarlford residents from the past.
It has an attractive function room with exposed beams which give it a character all its own
The kitchen has a good supply of crockery and because the function room is on the first floor there is a stair lift for the disabled.
There are ceiling and wall heaters to keep the function room warm in the cold winter months.
If you would like to know more then please contact either:
Please note, due to damage caused at a recent event, bookings are unlikely to be accepted for 'teenage parties'.

Mobile library service discontinued
Due to cutbacks the number of mobile library vans has been reduced from four to one, and the mobile library will no longer stop at Guarlford and Madresfield from 31st January 2015.
Copies of 'The Guarlford Scene' and ''The Guarlford Story' are on sale at The Malvern Book Cooperative in St Ann's Road and Grange Farm Nursery. Copies are also available direct from the authors. Very few copies of the Guarlford story remain for sale.
Were you in one of the neighbourhood group photos? Is your family pictured in the book? Can you help identify some of the missing names in the photographs?
Mugs celebrating the 60th anniversary of the Coronation in 1953 are still available to purchase price £3, but stocks are now running very low, so please get in touch if you want one.
The picture on the front of the mug is of Mr Henry Bladder of Fowler's Farm striking a deal, possibly around or just after WWI.
Please contact a member of the Guarlford History Group or email the webmaster if you would like a mug.
(Please note, due to fragile nature, mugs cannot be ordered by post).
