BRIDPORT COMMUNITY SUPPORT 

Volunteers have joined with local councillors and council officers to create this new support group for Bridport and many surrounding parishes.

A single phone number – 01308 808900 – provides access to advice and practical help provided by a host of local organisations from across the Bridport area, supported by around 150 volunteers.

Please note the call for volunteers on this poster…thanks.

Much of the maintenance of public areas around the parish is dependent upon bought in services from Bridport Town Council and Dorset Council. The latter issued this statement dated 20 March 2020:

“Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) our services are changing. This is so that we can redeploy employees to help front line staff, protect those in at-risk groups and keep essential services running. 

This is an unprecedented, continually changing situation and we are all working to keep Dorset residents safe. 

All services will be regularly reviewed to take into account the latest position and advice on COVID-19 from Public Health England.”

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

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

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

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

Following Facebook posts and a report in the Bridport News a good number of people have indicated that they would be prepared to help*.

Whilst Bradpole Parish Council does not own the Hall it does recognise its significance to the village community and is actively engaged with stakeholders and Trust advisers to bring all the details together. 

COVID-19: The Village Hall has been closed and “mothballed” for the duration of the current crisis. 

*Those people that have already expressed an interest in helping to manage the Hall when it is able to re-open are being contacted directly. If anyone else wishes to add their name please write to:

E. 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.

Springtime in Bradpole

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 WE HOPE TO BE ABLE TO PUBLISH A SPRING BUZZWORD DURING APRIL 2020.
