War Memorial Institute
Cliffe Village Institute, located on the A63 which runs through the village, was built in 1923 as a memorial to those in the Parish who fought and lost their lives in the First World War.
The original building was destroyed by fire shortly after it was completed in 1923, and was replaced on the same site by the current building in the same year.
The new building was dedicated and officially opened in 1924.
After the Second World War its status was extended and it now stands as a war memorial for both World Wars.
It gained Registered Charity status and now serves as a village hall for use by individuals and local organisations such as Mothers & Toddlers, Line Dancing, Aerobics and Art Classes.
The building also serves as a polling station for local and general elections.
