An opportunity has arisen for the purchase of the Black Barn, and adjoining Cart Sheds, adjacent to the George. The council are undertaking a comprehensive feasibility study to see if it can be economically restored and converted to become a community facility in the heart of the village.
It is likely to be a complex and expensive project and to succeed will require the commitment and support of the whole village. If the feasibility study shows it to be possible the VHC will work with BPC, combining funds and joining forces to seek further funding and grant aid.
The benefit to the village will be considerable, providing a much needed hall and meeting rooms, with kitchen and handy next door pub and possibly a community shop. The barn and cart sheds have been unused for a long time, the council believe that converting for use as a village facility could be ideal.
