BVH Management Committee recently carried out a survey to get views on what
kind of things people wanted to see happening in the Village Hall and help ensure that the Hall
is catering for all members of the local community.
We had 30 responses in all, split equally between those who live in the village and those who
live in the immediate surrounding area. The responses were very positive and suggestions
were made for new activities which the Hall could provide. The Committee has discussed the
results and is actively looking at ways by which some of the suggested activities could be
provided soon. We are currently planning future events and we hope to present some new
ideas throughout 2022. Initially these would be on a one-off basis to gauge interest and
participation. We would hope to repeat new events that prove popular.
Keep a look out for news of such events in The Bugle, on the Village Website, the BVH
Facebook page. Thank you for your input if you participated in the survey. The results have
been most valuable for the Committee and you can read the full analysis on our website.
