It’s Village Halls Week

It’s Village Halls Week!

Village Halls Week is run by national rural charity Action with Communities in Rural England (ACRE) and their 38 member organisations. It takes place from Monday 20 January – Sunday 26 January.

Bishopswood Village Hall will be part of a national campaign which celebrates England’s 10,000 village halls.

Celebrating in style, Bishopswood Village Hall will have an Open Day on Saturday 25th January, from 11am – 4pm.  The Open Day is free to all and will showcase the halls activities and facilities, including a ‘Throwback Thursday’ display, highlighting the volunteers who have built the history of the Hall.

Don’t miss ticket sales for this years pantomime “Treasure Island” will be available at the event!

It’s is a chance to come along for a free tea or coffee and meet some of the small group of dedicated volunteers that keep the Hall running, whilst seeing what the Hall offers.

Bishopswood Village Hall is a key part of our community, it plays host to social gatherings and a number of classes and groups covering a range of interests and is also the venue for the bi-annual Bishopswood Pantomime.

Celebrating 10 Years of Bishopswood Pantomime

First Bishopswood Luncheon Club of 2020

There was a good turn out for the first Bishopswood luncheon club of 2020.  Always a popular event for the regular attendees who enjoyed cottage pie and vegetables followed by apple pie and custard.  Good food, good company, good cheer, what a better way to spend a Wednesday!

A special thank you to the volunteers who prepared and served the delightful meal.

The next Luncheon Club is Wednesday 19th February, phone Ann on 01989 563068 to book your place.
