Community and village halls in Central Bedfordshire
Together with Bedfordshire Rural Communities Charity (BRCC), we carried out a survey in 2017 to gain as comprehensive and accurate a picture as possible of the village halls and community buildings in the area.
There are 159 community halls (of which we are aware) across Central Bedfordshire, equating to one hall per 1,754 residents and covering nearly every civil parish with a population of over 150. The survey is ongoing.
As a result of this work, we aim to complete a strategy for village halls and community buildings to target investment from new developments.
