The new parking policy at the village hall car park

The village hall car park now prohibits any vehicles to be left in the car park between the hours of midnight to 7.30am, unless a valid permit issued by the village hall management committee is displayed.  This restriction came into force on the 1st October.  The car park is checked on random days and times and any vehicle without a permit will be subject to a £100 fine. 

The benefits of the new restriction has already been seen as we no longer have an almost full car park at the start of the day and, more importantly, there are more empty car parking spaces for our evening bookings.


Stage extension

!!!!! The Stage extension is finished and the stage had its first use for the Pantomime (Bluebeard) in February 2017

 However, there are other projects in the pipeline including replacement of the uninsulated roof of the large hall. Please send any donations to Greg Allen, Treasurer, The Old Post Office, 2 Gore Square, Bishops Lydeard, Taunton, TA4 3BW. Cheques should be made payable to ‘Bishops Lydeard Village Hall Improvement Fund’. Donations can also be sent by bank transfer and can be Gift Aided. For information email

How you can help us 



go to top of page




The Village Hall Committee’s aim is to enhance and improve the Village Hall  thus making it a more user friendly and versatile facility for the village.


This aim started with the resurfacing of the car park and continues with the new Small Hall and the replacement of Play Park equipment as described above. The Village Hall Management Committee is now looking for grants for the next phase of development which will be an extension of the Mount St. end of the Large Hall to accommodate a permanent stage.

The Village Hall Management Committee would welcome new members who would like to help in the running of this important village facility. Why not come along to our AGM (date to be advised) to find out more and to give us suggestions on events or activities you would like to see provided.


As the hall development programme continues so the workload involved in keeping it running increases. There are many tasks involved in running the Village Hall, such as -:

·     Maintenance of the hall and grounds.

·      Fund raising planning and helping at events

· Improvement planning and applying for grants


The more people we have involved in the running of the Hall the smaller the workload for the individual, so if you feel you would like to help and have some time to spare please contact  either Richard Peacocke  (01823 432740), Greg Allen (01823 430421) or Alan Ball (01823 433983).
