BRITTONS ASH COMMUNITY HALL (BACH)
The formal opening of the new West Monkton C of E Primary School and the BACH took place at a happy ceremony on 9th January 2017. Visitors to the school were suitably impressed by the amazing facility in which the children of the Parish can now learn and grow. Refreshments in the BACH allowed visitors to mix and mingle and see the facilities that the BACH can offer the community.
In terms of what’s available – you enter a large lobby suitable for meeting and greeting; a large Activities Room with a wooden floor, a smaller carpeted committee room; a galley kitchen fully equipped with dishwasher, boiler fridges, cutlery and crockery for 60 and a cooker with induction hobs. Storage is available to the rear of the activities room, there are ladies’ and gents’ toilets, a disabled toilet with baby changing unit; seats and tables for 60 people.
There has been a lot of interest by local clubs and classes, and there are some lively mornings and evenings! The BACH has been privately hired for meetings and celebrations and more are booked.
The Committee is very keen to encourage as much use of the BACH by the community as possible – after all, it is a community hall built as a result of the growth of Monkton Heathfield, so it is open and available to all.
If you would like to look round the Hall, or find out what’s on, or make a booking, or join the team, please call the Chairman, Barry Gage 07752 723311.
