Our Website
Our website is to enable the people of Bideford and visitors to see what the Pollyfield Community Centre is all about. The aim is for you to visit and join as a member or maybe just come along and join in the activities available at the centre. We have a wide range of regular activities as well as one off events. You don't have to pay to become a member! We run the Shamwickshire Bar, where you can come along with friends and have a drink and play pool, darts and crib or just meet the locals!

So why not visit us!
