Beenham Village Events

Beenham Village Events (BVE) is a community organisation constituted under the auspices of Beenham Parish Council for the purpose of organising social and fundraising events for the benefit of residents of the parish of Beenham. The group has helped to organise many popular Summer Festivals and village Christmas Tree celebrations.

Regular activities in the Village (subject to Covid 19 regulations)

Beenham's Afternoon Tea Party is held on the last Tuesday of each month and is popular with all age groups within the village.  Come along to Beenham Club, Picklepythe Lane from 2 to 4pm for a chat, a cup of tea and a delicious slice of cake.  If you need a lift then phone Pat on 0118 961 5860 or 07947 478840 and something will be arranged.

Since April we have become cake fairies delivering our cakes to people around the village on the last Tuesday of the month.

Greener Beenham

We all know how important the wider environment is to our health and well-being. Beenham residents are supporting a number of initiatives:

Take those difficult to recycle items along to the monthly market in the Victory Hall

Buy your eggs from local egg producers at the Victory Hall on Saturday mornings 10am to 1pm

Support the idea of planting fruit trees and wild flowers in village open spaces

Beenham 2020

Beenham had a calendar of events planned to celebrate the centenary of the Victory Hall, Club and local WI. The outbreak of Covid-19 has sadly resulted in many of these being cancelled. So, we are aiming to celebrate Beenham 2021 in a grand style – Covid 19 permitting of course!
Please continue to support any of these community activities still running - we are grateful to the villagers who are putting in a lot of effort to organise them.
