THE VICTORY ROOM
This old hall in the heart of Bucklebury village, plus the land it sits on, was conveyed to the local community in the will of Dame Nina Katherine Webley Parry Pryse, a Bucklebury resident who died in 1917. A committee of volunteer trustees was set up to look after the Victory Room, ensuring the hall was maintained for everyone's benefit.
Over the years the hall has been used for all sorts of gatherings, and in the early days, some evenings were reserved for men or women only! Today it's used by local scouts, cubs, guides and brownies, art classes, as a polling place during elections, for various committee and public meetings, family parties, the local football teams, church functions, entertaining events organised by the trustees, and more.
The committee now has planning permission to refurbish and extend the old building and build a much improved hall which will serve the community for the next 100 years. The trustees have raised £273k and are currently in the process of discussing final tenders for the work.
