Bradpole Parish Council manages this website to enable readers to be kept up to date with developments and issues facing the Civil Parish of Bradpole, its Council, and its residents.

Do you know the difference between a Civil Parish and an Ecclesiastical Parish? Our Parish Council page will explain this in more detail.

Bradpole Parish Council represents the views of local people, negotiates and influences the decisions which directly affect the community and aims to improve the quality of life for everyone living and working in the area.

We maintain this community website as a relevant source of factual information by regular updating.

BRADPOLE BUZZWORD

We realise that not all of our residents are able to access either this website or our social media platforms. We therefore produce a quarterly news sheet which is posted on the many notice boards around the parish.

If you have a friend or neighbour who you think would appreciate reading the current issue you are please download a copy the Winter Buzzword

If you have difficulty accessing some of the forms on this website please ask the Parish Clerk for a hard copy.

Bradpole Village Hall CRISIS

alt="Village Hall interior"
The community room at Bradpole Village Hall

Bradpole Village Hall (The Forster Memorial Institute) has been at the centre of Village activities since it was built, with the help of public subscription, and opened in 1890.

It is held in trust for the benefit of residents of the area

A meeting was called earlier this month to discuss the future of the Hall but this unfortunately co-incided with “Storm Dennis” and insufficient people were able to attend to enable any decisions to be made.

The Charity Commission has advised that if sufficient managing trustees cannot be found then Hall closure must be considered.

Whilst Bradpole Parish Council does not own the Hall it does recognise its significance to the village and is actively engaged with stakeholders to see if a way forward exists.
This is not so much a matter of money at this stage but of volunteers who are prepared to support the Hall.
It is likely that a crisis meeting will be held in the near future for All residents so if YOU or your family, friends and/or neighbours have an interest in the continuance of YOUR Village Hall please watch this space or look out for notices on social media and local notice boards.
