Bradpole Civil Parish

Welcome, this is the Bradpole Parish Council Community Website.

Summer view across Bradpole countryside

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 please download a copy.

COVID-19 In the current situation we are concentrating our efforts, and notice board space, on providing information regarding the help that is both required and available to ensure that NO-ONE GETS LEFT BEHIND. We are therefore suspending the production of the BRADPOLE BUZZWORD for the duration of the COVID-19 CRISIS.

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

Save Bradpole Village Hall

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

1977 FORSTER INSTITUTE TRUST DEED

The current team of trustees has diminished in numbers and are no longer able to continue to manage the Hall.

This is not so much a matter of money but of volunteers who are prepared to support the Hall.

The Trust accounts for the year ending Aug 2019 have been placed on the Charity Commission website and show and income of £7.8k and expenditure of £5.1k for the year.

Following Facebook posts by @BradpoleCouncil and a report in the Bridport News earlier this year several people have indicated that they would be prepared to help.

MARCH 23rd COVID-19: Following Health & Safety advice relating to community venues the Village Hall was closed and “mothballed” for the duration of the crisis. 

Whilst Bradpole Parish Council does not own the Hall it does recognise its significance to the village community and has arranged for the Hall to be maintained physically and financially in a “State of Preparation” with the intention that it will be ready to re-open once a new team of Trustees/volunteers is formed.

The Charity Commission have been informed of developments.

May 21st. A letter (Email) providing information has been sent to the 16 people* that have shown an interest in helping.

It may be possible to facilitate a “Virtual” meeting to get things moving along.

*If anyone else wishes to add their name please write to:

Email: bradpole@dorset-aptc.gov.uk 

or Tel 01380 422140

A BIG thanks to all who have been in contact.

Despite the current difficulties your support will contribute to ensuring the continuance of the Hall as a community venue.
