The Room of Requirement
Across from the tapestry displaying Barnabas the Barmy attempting to teach trolls ballet, one will find a blank stretch of wall. This wall has the magical ability to become whatever the seeker requires. To open the room, one has to either have an almighty need for something, or they walk past the stretch of wall three times thinking about what they need at the time. 
While the room has great capabilities, it also has some limitations. It cannot create food or money due to Gamp’s Law of Elemental Transfiguration. It also cannot be used for theft or any sort of crime.

Flavius Belby

Flavius Belby is the only wizard who is known to have survived a Lethifold attack. During 1782 Belby was holidaying in Papua New Guinea. One night, a Lethifold entered his bedroom and, being awake at the time, Belby had time to defend himself. As the creature attempted to smother him, he grabbed his wand and tried some spells against the beast, but neither the Stunning Spell nor the Impediment Jinx had any effect on it. Belby struggled, but the creature continued strangling him. Incapable of breathing, Belby was close to unconsciousness when, using his last ounce of strength, he recalled the memory of the day that he was elected President of his local Gobstones Club, and produced a Patronus that drove the creature off.

Chudley
Chudley is the small sub-village of the greater Chudleigh village in England. It is a village with a high Wizarding population, and most of the Muggles are married to or living with someone of magical blood. There are only a few stores in Chudley; a pub, a small grocery store, and a hair dresser being the most prominent. This means that many of the residents will come together on Saturdays to go into greater Chudleigh to do their shopping.
It is home of the Chudley Cannons Quidditch team, which has been gaining success in the last few years after being bought by Weasleys’ Wizard Wheezes in 2010.
