Scope and content

By the start of the 1980s many WI Halls across the country were finding it increasingly hard to maintain what were in many cases, old buildings and the WI Hall in Bampton was no exception. New requirements were to come into force regarding toilets, kitchens, electrical wiring etc and there was no way the Bampton branch could raise the funds for such work. There was also talk of a pavilion being built and if that should happen it was clear more groups would hire the hall there with it's new toilets and kitchen and easy parking and that would lower the income even further for the WI because they relied on monies from hiring out the hall. If it was to be sold the money would go to the federation and not into Bampton in any way and Bampton would lose it's hall. These documents follow the meetings which eventually led up to the hall becoming the Village Hall and included are the architect's plans for both the refurbishment and extension.
