If for some reason you need to change your 'stint' then please try to arrange a swap with someone else, BUT please let us know of the changes so that the Rota can be amended
The traditional Brimpsfield Bonfire Night was successfully held on 5thNovember 2023 with a large bonfire and sparklers provided for the many attending children. At the request of several villagers there were no fireworks, which would have startled the horses and frightened the local dogs and cats.
The event was very well attended with almost all the children and parents from the village and outlying areas. This was followed by hot baked potatoes with beans and grated cheese toppings and Mulled Wine for the parents and soft drinks for the children. Everyone had a very enjoyable evening.
The new ballet – “Fragments” was premiered at Brimpsfield village Hall to the delight of the audience. The ballet was created and brilliantly performed by the Dorset based “Dance Project” set up 5 years ago by the then 14 year old dancer James Bamford.
The Brimpsfield Village Hall Committee has set up a Special Events Sub-Committee, which will propose and organise special community events in Brimpsfield in addition to those normally run by the Village Hall Committee.
It is proposed that a portion of the Village Hall funds will be reserved for running such special community events. The Village Hall Committee invites interested villagers to join this new sub-committee and run these events.
Please notify the VHC of your interest and availability by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org
RedCroft have now finished their work on the extension of the Village Hall. The front wall has been completed externally, the porch area has been extended and a new fiberglass roof covering applied over the front and rear portions of the roof. Work is now proceeding on re-wiring, internal insulation and finishes with the work carried out by volunteers from the village.
The external structure of the extension is now completed and the roof waterproofed. The internal wall between the hall and extension is being constructed and next week the builders will start on the reconstruction of the entrance lobby.
Work on the shell of the village hall extension started on 9thAugust, a day earlier than forecast, and very good progress has been made in two days with half the floor joists fixed and the complete framework of the external walls erected.
Materials have now been delivered for construction of the shell of the front extension, which will commence in about a week - (10/08/22).
Work on the extension and refurbishment of the Brimpsfield village hall is progressing. The foundation trench has been kindly dug by Andrew Herring and deepened by hand by John and Mikhail. The concrete foundations had been poured and Rob Harber has now completed the blockwork supporting wall up to floor level. Materials are now being ordered for the following stages and Bob Mitchell of Redcroft Construction will be starting of the shell of the front extension at the beginning of August.

The event was attended by 29 people all of whom greatly enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere, convivial conversation and the good food provided by the hosts and hostesses.
A photo quiz challenged the diners and some very worthwhile prizes were won in traditional raffle.
The one of the track on the background music compilation proved irresistible for some diners.
Due to the impossibility of raising the required sum to build a new village hall the Village Hall Committee is about to start the extension and refurbishment of the existing hall as shown on these drawings. Planning Permission had been obtained and detailed construction drawings prepared. Preparatory actions are scheduled to start on 21st September 2021. The project is to be delivered largely on a community self-build basis. Whilst the Committee has enough funds to purchase the required materials, further assistance from the village community is invited, both in the form of donations and offers of physical help with the building work. Please contact Mikhail Mandrigin on email@example.com or 078 9977 4466.
