Improvements to Alveston’s Jubilee Hall
The Jubilee Hall has seen a huge upgrade in its facilities over the last few years. The Bathrooms, Kitchen, Windows and Garden have all had a makeover.
The Kitchen had a complete refurbishment, with new cooking facilities, cupboards and even a brand new water heater installed. Serving food and teas and coffees couldn’t be easier!
The kitchen improvements would not have happened without the generous support given by Enovert Community Trust. As well as the hard work of MG Kitchens who completed the refurbishment.
The Garden has been conscientiously restored with a beautiful new patio area to enable teas and coffees to be had outside. The wonderful planting adds colour around the edge of the garden and the wildflower area and bug hotel provide space for wildlife. Thank you to all the hard work of Kellaways Building Supplies, Dan Morris landscape contractor, Alveston Forum and Volunteers from the Alveston Community for helping create a calm and welcoming space for the whole village to be able to use.
Secondary glazing has also been fitted to improve the warmth of the original Victorian building during the winter months and reduce the carbon footprint of the building. Autumn of 2023 will also see a new remotely controlled heating system set up so the hall will become as energy efficient as possible.
New Fire Exit doors have also recently been replaced thanks to a very generous donation from the Emily Ponting Charity. The Emily Ponting Charity specifically helps residents and organisations of Alveston.
In 2020 the old bathrooms and cloakroom area were extensively updated with a new disabled toilet and completely reconfigured male/female facilities. Additionally, the main hall was beautifully re-painted, returning the hall to the pink and grey colour scheme from past years. New curtains were also fitted to both the Main hall and Bush room to complete the renovation.
Regular community clubs include the following;
- Alveston Gardens Association
- Alveston Parish Council Meetings
- Cavalier Field Archers
- Little and Curious Play Group
- Sharon Phillips School of Dancing
- Thornbury Stroke Support Group
History of the Jubilee Hall
The Jubilee Hall was built in 1897. Local businessman Edward Bush commissioned the hall to commemorate the Diamond Jubilee of Queen Victoria. Edward’s heir Graham Bush donated the ‘Lime Kiln Field’ in 1938. Edward and his brother Thomas both lived in Alveston village. It is believed they built the pumping engines for the collieries at Coalpit Heath.
After 120 years the hall is still a vital resource for the local community, hosting a wide variety of meetings and events for all to enjoy.
