Origin of the Village Hall and Playing Field Trust

Objects, Organisations and Activities

The object of the charity is, in the interests of social welfare, to improve the conditions of life of the inhabitants of Bishops Hull without distinction of political, religious or other opinions by the provision and maintenance of:

(a) a village hall for use by the inhabitants, including use for:

(i) meetings, lectures and classes and
(ii)other forms of recreation and leisure-time occupation and

(b) a playing field for use by the inhabitants.

The "Village Hall" is part of the community facilities provided within the Bishop's Hull County Primary School, under licence between Somerset County Council and the Trust dated 15th April 1977, for a period of 99 years.

The Playing Field (leased from Taunton Deane Borough Council for a term of 99 years from 15th April 1977) is subject to an agreement between Somerset County Council and the Trust dated 29th May 1981.

The community facilities within the school are available for hire by any individual or organisation in accordance with the standard hiring agreement and scale of charges adopted for the year. It is the Trustees' intention that the charges and the fund raising be sufficient to meet all expenditure incurred in providing the community facilities and maintaining the playing field.

On June 4th 2008 the improved play area was opened, funded by the Trust and with grants from Taunton Deane, Virador, the Parish Council, the LAT and our county councillor.
