*NEWS The Parish Council’s application for a public works loan for Phase 1 of the Village Hall refurbishment works has been approved. The Parish Council and Village Hall Steering Group are working together on this project and further updates will be posted on this page.
Message from the Trustees of Brampton Abbotts Village Hall
Do you want a successful Village Hall? Would you like to help progress its development?
The Trustees have done a huge amount of work to progress the refurbishment of the Village Hall and now urgently need more volunteers to help with specific tasks:
Could you take the Minutes at the monthly Trustees’ meeting? Would you be able to deal with some administration?
We need one or two people who would like to help the Hall develop and progress as we move towards getting the work started.
Are you familiar with managing a website or running a Facebook page or just have an interest in social media?
The Village Hall website is well on the way to being launched. We need someone to help keep ours up-to-date when we get it up and running.
When the Hall opens, bookings will be mainly through the website and Facebook pages. We have one volunteer but it would be good to have an assistant as back-up.
If you think you could help, please email Leila on firstname.lastname@example.org and she will tell you more about the roles.
THE VILLAGE HALL WILL BE CLOSED FOR ESSENTIAL REPAIRS & REFURBISHMENT.

UPDATE: 1 June 2019
The Village Hall has a largely new committee following the AGM on 30th April.
Chair Robert Lewis
Treasurer Alyx Miller-Hall
Secretary Leila Dawson
OHNS Rep Alice Marshall
Helping the committee, but not part of it, is the Refurbishment Sub-Group of parishioners with professional experience of building projects: Brian Miller-Hall, John Berry, Graham Marsh and Diana Tabernacle
The Committee is working closely with the Parish Council to produce a Business Plan which is necessary to enable the PC to access funding for the repairs.
The Refurbishment sub group has produced a Scope of Works, based closely on responses to the Parish questionnaire. This is in two parts –the first covers the essential repairs to get the Hall open again and the second contains a wish list of improvements to the facilities.
It is hoped to get a loan for the essentials and grants to cover the rest. Parishioners will be consulted before any applications for loans and grants are made.

JUNE 2018 Update from the Chairman of the Village Hall Committee.
As you know the snow earlier this year caused problems in the roof, ceiling and electrics. We have involved the insurance company, builders, architect and engineer. The reason for the involvement of these disciplines is that the roof structure is more complicated than originally thought. So the repair is also more complicated. Also as works need to be done consideration is being given to the acoustics in the building at the same time.
So its more complicated than originally thought. A plan is however being actively work on with all involved.
You will be updated.
Chairman Village Hall Committee
