Norton Village Community Association

 

The Community Association was founded and registered as a Charity in 1982 with two main purposes:
  1. To manage and maintain Norton Village Hall (see above), which was built is 1844 by Buriah Botfield. The Botfield family were the local landowners and they built many of the older buildings in Norton. The Village Hall was originally the village school which during the 1930's saw some seventy children in attendance. In 2009 the committee improved the buildings facilities including new heating, disabled toilet facilities, redecoration throughout, new storage cupboards tables and the installation of a hearing loop. The total project spend has exceeded £35,000. The hall is owned by the Church but the original 30 year lease to the village has expired, the NVCA continues to manage the hall in conjunction with the PCC.

    Currently there are a number of local groups using the village hall which is available for a small donation to assist towards the running costs. The hall, which has excellent catering facilities, is available for bookings by businesses and private hirers at reasonable very rates. For hall booking enquiries please email ukrs12@hotmail.co.uk or contact Roger Saunders on 01327‐879204.

    Although the hall is available for hire and receives a donation from the Norton Charity generally it has to be supported by funds from other NVCA activities. In order to achieve these goals the association needs to raise funds from the various events it organises. At the moment the NVCA consists of Roger Saunders, Tim Kirby, Dan Parslow, and Roy Shead, ably assisted by many villagers when called upon. We always need new members in order bring new ideas and help with events so please come and join us or let us know that you are available to organise manage or assist us in any way.


    Contact: Roger on  01327 8792014, Tim on 01327 310656, or Dan  or Roy.
     
  2. To encourage and promote community participation through organised village events such as coffee mornings, quizzes, children’s parties, summer fairs, village excursions and trips, The trick or treat halloween party where the village children raise funds for the annual bonfire night event. Christmas party’s for the older residents and the children’s disco.
