Bothenhampton Village

Bothenhampton Village Hall

The Hall was built in 1914 for the benefit of the villagers on land donated by Joseph Gundry.

The vicar and churchwardens were trustees and it was known as a Church Hall until 2002. By then funding from the lottery and other organisations was available for village halls, so to take advantage of grants for much needed improvements it was legally changed from Church Hall to Village Hall.

It is now run by a very hardworking management committee who have made a number of major improvements and keep the building in excellent condition.

The Village Hall has been used for meetings, lectures and classes and also for leisure activities. The hall committee are very pro-active in consulting with the community about the kind of activities and facilities that they feel that they need. They strive to provide something for everyone and every age range.

Parties and games for young children
