WELCOME TO ST MARY BOURNE
St Mary Bourne, situated in the centre of the beautiful Bourne Valley, is inside the North Wessex Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, just 5 miles to the north east of Andover, close to Whitchurch and easily
accessible from the A34, A303 and A343 for county wide events.
The St Mary Bourne Village Centre overlooks a picturesque Recreation
Ground with adjoining lake, bowling green, new games & sports area with tennis court, play ground and Village Shop with Post Office. There are excellent car parking facilities.

Although the Village Centre is primarily for the use of the local community, it is available for, and also welcomes, other outside
bookings. Hire charges are very reasonable and there has been little increase for some years (see details under HIRE). The Village Centre does have a Premises License which permits the sale and provision of alcohol for consumption on the premises.
Re-opening - 2021
The lifting of most Covid guidance and legal restrictions in England took place recently. The Village Centre is now fully open again subject to any government regulations/restrictions and/or guidelines/recommendations remaining in place with risks managed by hirers e.g., through ventilation, encouraging social distancing, face masks, hand washing and use of hand sanitiser. See our up-to-date Covid-19 guidelines under HIRE.

Village Centre AGM
Our 2021 AGM was held on 21st July. Reports are now available - see links below .
The main topic for discussion was ideas for celebrating the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee 2nd to 5th June next year. We think everyone will be ready for celebrating in style by then and we want the Village Centre to host village events over the holiday weekend to mark this historic royal first. If you have ideas for this please email us email@example.com .
Watch this space for updates in due course.

1. The Main Hall
The Main Hall (9 m x 15 m) is used for many purposes, from private parties, weddings, theatrical performances and film shows to auctions and sporting activities.
It is large enough for 120 guests to sit at tables with room for dancing, or it can seat 200 in rows for meetings. There are 20 large tables (180x70cm) sitting 8 each and some smaller ones.
A large well-equipped kitchen and bar facilities lead directly off the hall. A stage is also available for those wishing to use it.

2. The Committee Room
This smaller upstairs room can accommodate 20 or so around tables, or 30 to 40 people standing.
With access to the kitchen and toilets downstairs, it is well suited for committee meetings, smaller displays, social occasions or buffet-type parties.
3. The Club Room
Larger than the Committee Room, having its own separate entrance from that of the Main Hall, the Club Room is self-contained with its own small kitchen and WC.
The Club Room can accommodate 30 or so around tables, or 50 to 60 people standing. It is ideal for functions for which the main hall is too large. It is especially suited for activities that involve children, such as discos and birthday parties.
