The hall has recently been refurbished with new curtains and lighting and redecorated throughout as can be seen here

Our next project is to relocate the toilets and kitchen and to provide easier access for disabled users. Improvements to the rear entrance will be incorporated. Grants to carry out the work have been received and If all goes well we hope that the improvements could be completed within the next 6 months.

History

The Village Hall started its life as a club for village residents. It was built by Samuel Courtauld and an inaugural meeting was held on 5 January 1926 to approve a committee.
Members of the club paid a monthly subscription.
The club was non-sectarian, non-political and gambling and drinking were not allowed. The hall was reserved on alternate nights from 6.00pm – 9.00pm for men and boys, and women and girls.
A billiard table, piano and other items such as a darts board were purchased, and dances, concert parties, whist drives and other entertainments were regularly held.
In 1954 the hall was handed over by Mr Courtauld to the parish council as trustees and a management committee was elected to run the hall. This situation continues to this day.

The hall is available for hire at modest rates for locals who wish to rent it out for children’s birthday parties, events, parties or to run hobby or exercise classes. Please contact 01371 850852 for current rates and facilities.

Backing onto the hall is the village playing field, run by the Blackmore End Playing Field Committee in close association with the village hall committee. The large field is home to a football team (Great Bradfords FC), pavilion and children’s play area. A registered charity, the BEPFC funds maintenance of the field, buildings and equipment by holding events and hiring the field out to interested parties. Enquiries: 07990 518430.
