Barrow Hill Memorial Hall is an iconic heritage building built in 1863 & donated to the village in 1920 as the village’s war memorial. It is currently being refurbished by a community-led charity to be a multi-purpose centre for local people, incorporating facilities for youth, sports, jobs/skills, community cohesion/socialising, culture, a nursery and a community venue for important occasions such as weddings, funerals & birthdays. The village was built to be self-sufficient – a model village with all the facilities that were needed – but these have all been lost over the years: the doctors, the social club, the churches, the meeting spaces, the pub, the takeaways. We are rebuilding the heart of the village by enabling people to come together for common good, mutual support & shared betterment to economically & culturally rebuild the village from the grassroots. We know that this asset-based approach will be effective to provide long term improvements in local economy & peoples’ lives
