Once the new extension is completed in early December, the Village Hall will have additional space and more room to enable community and other groups to hold events. The Village Hall Trustees are keen that community groups in Bramley take full advantage of the additional and upgraded facilities; we recognise that finding the right size space at the time you need it can be a challenge for some groups, especially for those starting-up with ambitious plans but bearing the risk that they may not achieve the numbers they hope for. We are prepared to help new community groups in these circumstances. We are willing to work with start-ups to provide them with suitable meeting space with no charge for the first three meetings and a discounted rate for room hire for three meetings after that. We can offer advice and support for those organisers seeking to apply for grants and other funding to help their group get off the ground. And we have access to the network of community groups across Hampshire and can try to put you in touch with others focussed on similar issues. If you have ideas for new groups, your Village Hall can help! Please firstname.lastname@example.org.
