Grand opening of the newly refurbished and extended hall
Bramley Village Hall was built in 1970 and extended in the 1990s. Although structurally sound, some internal elements were in need of improvement or replacement and our repair bill has been rising steadily over the past few years. Grant funding was successfully sought from Basingstoke and Deane and Hampshire County Council in 2018 and the work was undertaken with our contractor Underwood from July-Dec 2019.
The refurbished hall benefits from a much more workable layout with new w/c’s for both children and adults; a new accessible w/c; a new kitchen in the Bramley Room; a new floor in the Main Hall kitchen; a new meeting room at the front of the building; and a new extended entrance and portico. The hall has a new frontage featuring wood affect cladding and new doors and signage to modernise the hall’s external appearance. Further funding has been secured from Basingstoke and Deane to deal with external drainage issues and to resurface the hall car park which is likely to take place in the summer of 2020.
Bramley Village Hall Trustees thank all village hall users for their patience during this challenging time. We are proud to have remained open through the build and refurbishment and we hope we caused as little disruption to visitors as possible. We feel sure you will agree that the improvements to the hall were worth any inconvenience.

There will be an official opening by the Mayor of Basingstoke and Deane on Tuesday 18th February from 10.30-11.30am. Any villagers who would like to come along and see first hand what we have achieved would be more than welcome.
