Blunham Parish Hall was built in 1929, it is now called Blunham Village Hall. The hall is run by a management committee. During 1997 and 1999 a lot of money was spent bringing the hall up to date. The hall received grants which allowed the kitchen to be modernised in 1997. In 1999 Mid Beds and the Parish Council gave grants and the hall had double glazed windows fitted throughout. The meeting room at the back of the hall was re-roofed, carpets were laid and heating put in, it was then re-decorated. The main hall was also re-decorated.
In 2001 after much fund raising, a £5000 lottery grant, a £3000 Mid Beds grant and a £2000 donation from Lloyds TSB, new ladies and gents tiolets and a disabled tiolet were fitted in the hall. After the modernisation of the toilets the rooms were then all redecorated.
In 2010 the village hall committee were able to secure several grants for the first phase of planned alterations to the hall.
The hall has now been rewired, a false roof has been put in the main hall and the walls insulated. The hall is now much more comfortable and pleasant to use.
In 2011 with another grant secured the second phase of alterations began when a new more welcoming entrance to the front of the hall was built.
With the entrance now finished it is hoped the committee will be able begin the third phase of our plans. This will include tidying up all the area outside the hall. The parking space will be replaced by a pre-school childrens' play area, french drains put in around the hall and the outside of the hall decorated.
Regular activities in the hall are:-
