BOURNHEATH VILLAGE HALL

Bournheath Village Hall – The Beating Heart of Bournheath

Set in a semi-rural location close to the M5 and M42 motorways, the Village Hall was founded on 1st January 1975 and is a Registered Charity No.523101. It is a friendly place to attend, located next to a park which has a children’s play area and plenty of open space. There are many activities which are held at the Community Centre including children’s playgroups, dog training, talks from Worcestershire Wildlife, art groups and events organised by The Village Community Centre Committee.

The hall has one large function room perfect for all kind of events; family occasions, classes or general gatherings, with a smaller room adjoining it that is ideal as a meeting room, together with a fully refurbished kitchen.  There is also a large car parking area to accommodate visitors’ cars.

The Community Centre is available to hire, at very reasonable rates.  Please see the rates, effective from 1st January 2020, under the ‘Booking Rates’ tab,  at the top of the screen.  Anyone wishing to make a hall reservation is advised to do so via email only, to the Booking Officer, on bournheathvillage@yahoo.co.uk.  Thank you.

***PLEASE KEEP WATCHING THIS SPACE***

These pages will be updated with details of any upcoming Community events, that you are invited to attend.

Please check the ‘Events’ page and ‘Events Calendar’ for upcoming events or ‘Past Events’ to recall those events that you may already have attended or missed.  The ‘Photographs’ page will show photos of the larger community events, see if you can spot yourself there.

DAM GOOD PICTURE (ELAN VALLEY – WALES) BY DAVID FIELD

CRITIQUE BY MICHAEL MCILVANEY

I love the point of view in this composition and the energy depicted in the image. It never ceases to amaze me how a two-dimensional print can project such powerful scenes. Perhaps the sky, the bleached which clouds, compete too enthusiastically with the subject..

‘I’M STUCK’ BY DAVID JELLIE

CRITIQUE BY MICHAEL MCILVANEY

The strength of this image lies in its storytelling. Poor stranded dog. Did he/she ever get off? I do hope so. Difficult lighting conditions to contend with, so well done on producing such an engaging image!

‘CANDLES FOR THE WORLD’ BY CHRISTINE CROSS

CRITIQUE BY MICHAEL MCILVANEY

An interesting image: there is a tension in the composition created by the juxtaposition of asymmetry (the placement of the candles) and symmetry (the lines of the orb and its central placement). The range of tones is limited and the challenge of exposing lighted..

‘THE FACTORY WINDOW’ BY ELE REA

CRITIQUE BY MICHAEL MCILVANEY

Critique by Michael McIlvaney

Due to the subdued foreground lighting, my eye is instantly drawn through the gap in the foliage to the first-floor window, where my interest is held by the two toy figures..
