on Brentwood Road, Bamford, the Moore Memorial Hall is a single-storey, pleasant, well-used small village hall, built in the
1930s partly by public subscription. In common with other village amenities, the hall has benefited by very generous
contributions from the late Stephen Sampson.
Consequently, the hall has recently been refurbished throughout:
new roof; new heating system; new toilet facilities, including disabled toilet; double glazing; new floor coverings; and wall,
ceiling and floor insulation. The kitchen has been completely refurbished with new appliances and cabinets. French
doors have been installed giving easy access into the garden which is being levelled and a seating area created ready for
spring 2013. Other developments are planned for 2013 which should see the completion of the refurbishment project.
The Hall offers bright, comfortable and practical accommodation for groups of up to 50 people. There is one
large room with a seating capacity of 50. There are folding tables and smaller card tables. The kitchen is
well equipped with oven, hob, fridge, microwave, cups and saucers.
Hire charges are on a sliding scale. Children's
groups are charged £4 per hour; adult groups and fund-raising events £5.50 per hour. Private parties are
charged £8.00 per hour. Other rates are available on application to the Bookings Officer - firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Hall is the ideal location for meetings, Keep Fit and private parties, especially children's parties.
It can be hired by the hour or day - there is no minimum hire charge and the rates are very competitive. The Hall can
be booked for one-off events or by groups on a regular basis. So if you are thinking of organising a party or other
event, consider the facilities the Moore Memorial Hall now has to offer.
The Hall has charitable status (number 1079637)
and is run by a local group of volunteers (Trustees) mainly formed by members of user groups plus ex-officio members: Chairperson,
Treasurer and Secretary.
A number of local groups use the Hall on a regular basis: Toddlers, Cubs, Brownies and Guides,
Young Farmers, Wine Circle and the Women's Institute. The Hall is also the usual venue for charity coffee mornings
and other fund-raising events organised by various organisations in Bamford.
