Our Community

Reel Rowsley

Our lovely village has its own community cinema based at the village hall: Reel Rowsley, which was set up in June 2019 following a successful grant application to Duke of Devonshire’s Charitable Trust (DDCT).

This included funding for the retractable screen and projector, new blackout curtains and other start-up costs. The sound system was covered by the BIG National Lottery Reaching Communities grant.

Rowsley and District Women’s Institute

A warm welcome from all at Rowsley and District W.I. There has been a Women’s Institute in Rowsley since 1926 – so we are over 90 years old!

We would like to see as many local ladies joining us as the Village Hall can hold – why not come along to one of our events and find out more? Visitors are always welcome.

Rowsley Community Matters Project

The goal of the project was to make our village hall a sustainable community venue for years to come,
