 Bulphan Village Hall is now a licensed premises, so the bar will be open for most Forum activities!

Village shop update: planning application for an extension to the Village Hall to provide a shop has been approved,the detailed specification has been finalised,  builders are submitting quotes, the Charity Commission have agreed changes to our Constitution so that we can have a shop and distribute the net rental profit to local Community organisations (Bulphan Village Hall, Bulphan in Bloom, Bulphan Village Forum and St. Mary the Virgin, Bulphan)

Thurrock Council are speeding through the legal and administrative details of the lease as quickly as they can: unfortunately, these things take time, but they are progressing.
