Memorial Hall
Also see the new BMH website here: http://bmh.burtonweb.org.uk



The date stone for Burton Memorial Hall was laid on July 21, 1956, by James Caunt, esq., J.P., the editor of the Morecambe Visitor newspaper, who lived in Burton at the time. Fundraising for the Hall had begun 16 years before during the early days of the Second World War. A plaque inside bears the inscription: Burton Memorial Hall Built by public subscription in appreciation of the men and women of the parish who served in the defence of their country. Opened by C.W.I. Penrhyn-Hornby Esq., 18th May 1957

The Memorial Hall has been extended since 1957 and now comprises the main hall, three meeting rooms, and several store rooms. It is one of the busiest village halls in the area, being used daily by groups ranging in age from Pre-School to Pensioners, and encompassing all forms of sports, leisure and recreation, as well as frequent fund-raising events. The Hall is licensed for music and dancing, the performance of plays and films, and the sale of alcohol at events.

The Hall is run by a management committee with an annually elected chairperson and treasurer, and a paid secretary/bookings manager. Every group or society which uses the Hall is entitled to send one representative to the quarterly management committee meetings. The current Hall secretary/manager is Mrs Helen Dawson.

2006 saw the Golden Jubilee of the Memorial Hall and this was celebrated by a week of events from 8-15 July 2006. Many hall users extended an open welcome to new members and taster sessions and extra activities took place.

An extensive study has been undertaken into how best to improve the Hall in line with the needs of modern users, and feedback from Hall users about what changes they would like to see is still welcomed by the Management Committee.

Burton Memorial Hall is a charity registered in England and Wales, no. 505018.
