The history of this ‘village get together’ stems from the demise of a village post office when villagers met to purchase stamps and post parcels but also to pass the time of day. Some of us felt that the social side of the post office was a great miss and that we should have a place to drop in and

If you would like to join in this support of our Pavilion please telephone 07398 340 506 for an enrolment form. The Pavilion Association Management committee have recently overseen a complete refurbishment of the Pavilion. The Bamburgh Pavilion refurbishment started in 2013 with enlarging and renewing our kitchen and replacing all the electrical units. As well as a new cooker, fridge and microwave, we have a commercial dish-washer (cycle 2 minutes) and a water boiler. At the same time we took the opportunity to revamp the sports away changing room and toilets.
We were very grateful for a generous grant from the National Lottery Awards for All fund and from the Northumberland County Council's Community Chest. Later in 2013 we re-felted the whole roof and insulated the loft space. Once again we were fortunate to receive funding from various sources including the Rothley Trust, the AONB sustainable development fund, the Community Foundation Three Valley Grassroots Fund, the Sir James Knott Trust and also NCC 's Community Chest. However, the committee was always very conscious that the main building needed a complete overhaul and so we embarked on a massive grant funding operation in early 2014.
Our main source of funding would have to be once again the National Lottery, but as the request was much larger than in 2013, we would be approaching the Sports for All, Inspired Facilities fund. Unfortunately, we were unsuccessful with our first two applications. However, we soldiered on and after 12 months we were awarded a massive grant of almost £50000 with a third and final approach. With this grant, we were able to insulate all the external walls, fit new lighting, a new boiler and oil tank, modernise the home changing rooms, re-seal the floor and finally paint both inside and the outside of the Pavilion. Finally, we decided to replace all the table and chairs together with the curtains as a result of a wonderful legacy from the late Joan Knowles. We now have a wonderful facility of which the village can be justly proud.
