Our story so far . . .
In November of 2015 Grace Church Rokeby purchased the Village Green Tavern (11 Ralphs Terrace Rokeby) and started the daunting task turning the dilapidated old building into something that the Clarence Plains community could be proud of. Situated on nearly 5 acres of land in the middle of our community the property was ideally positioned for development into a Community Centre and a hub for community gatherings as well as an administration base for local community groups throughout the week.
As with any old building, especially a pub, there were all sorts of issues that had to be addressed before the building could be used and in 2016 we began the task of removing 40 years of accumulated junk and redundant furnishings, bars, fireplaces, walls, etc that needed to go.
