Campton & Chicksands


TheVillage Hall

The Campton Village Hall is maintained and operated by a voluntary management committee, elected each year and has around 8 members. The function of the committee is to maintain and improve the village hall and its related facilities.


The Hall was built sometime during the 1800's and sold to the Church by the Osborne family of Chicksands on the 7th July 1873 when it was used as the Village School until 17th June 1936. It was then used as the Sunday School for a number of years. It was then sold to the PCC for £140 on the 3rd July 1959.

By 1970 it had fallen into a state of dis-repair and was then leased to the Parish Council for £1.00 per year on the understanding that it would be re-furbished and be managed by an appointed committee. The Village Hall Management Committe was formed and it was registered as a charity.

The hall was the last thatched Village Hall in Bedfordshire but the time came for the roof to be re-thatched and the decision was taken to replace the roof with tiles. A number of fund raising events took place in the village and a total of £18,000 was raised to pay for the new roof in 1992. The hall was extended with toilets and a meeting room added in 1976. The latest addition is Gas Fired Hot Water Radiator Central Heating which was installed in 2002, this was achieved through local fund raising and from Grants provided by the South East Beds Community Liaison Forum.

The Hall is used by a number of village groups and private individuals, such as the Bowls Club, Yoga Classes, Mothers and Toddler groups, Parish Council, All Saints' Church, Children's Parties, Wedding Parties and Birthday Parties.

In 2015 the toilets were refurbished with facilities for the disabled and baby changing fitted'

100 Club

PLEASE NOTE that while the Village Hall Management
Committee is in the process of trying to recruit new members –
it has been decided to cease the 100 Club Draw as of the end
of March 2019.  The Committee are hoping to have it up and running again by the end of the year.

The monthly draw takes place in the village hall, at the  committee meeting, on the second Wednesday of the month.  Results are posted on the noticeboard outside, on the parish website and in the parish newsletter when deadlines coincide.  You are welcome to come along and we would like to recruit new committee members so that we can keep fresh ideas flowing.  Please contact Malcolm if you think you can help out.  We are especially interested in increasing representation from Chicksands.
