A beautiful glazed and carpeted entrance lobby leads into a welcoming foyer. The Main Hall is to the left, in front of you is the Dennis Gunn Room, to the right the Community office, a spacious coat hanging cupboard is available and further down the passage, the Kitchen and the toilet facilities.

The Main Hall

A spacious 11.2m x 15m hall which has been tastefully finished with oak flooring on top of under floor heating, wooden arches to the ceiling, overhead and wall mounted lighting, stunning views of the local countryside through glazed doors facing south, access hatch to the kitchen with roller door and spacious storage rooms to the rear. Staging is available for any type of function, together with tables, rectangle or round, and comfortable padded chairs. The Main Hall can accommodate 100+ for seated meal, 200 seated audience and 250 standing buffet style function.

The Dennis Gunn Room

This room leads from the foyer or can be accessed through sliding doors from the Main Hall. It has been named the Dennis Gunn Room after Mr Dennis Gunn, a local man, who was Chairman of the Parish Hall Committee for some 30 years and who dedicated a great deal of his own time to the planning and fundraising for this new hall. Unfortunately Mr Gunn has not lived to see the finished hall but his wife, Frances, has played an excellent role as secretary of the hall committee and has been actively involved in numerous fundraising events.

The Dennis Gunn Room (4.2 x 6.7 m) can be used as a small meeting room or can be used in conjunction with the Main Hall as a bar area or "quiet space". It has an open hatch to the Kitchen and oak floor finish.

The Kitchen

The Kitchen (6.7m x 5.5m) has been planned to provide a practical working area to meet the needs of all users and has a fresh and open feel to it. The Kitchen comprises of a large stainless steel double sink, separate hand-washing facilities, automatic dishwasher, modern electric cookers, warming cupboard and auto-fill water boiler, fridge and plenty of worktop areas with cupboards underneath and wall mounted.There is a large island with a stainless steel top. There is ample crockery and cutlery with a range of kitchen essentials for any type of function. The Kitchen has a door to the Main Hall and a separate access via a corridor to the rear of the hall. There is a large lockable storeroom. It has two serving hatches, one to the Main Hall and one to the Dennis Gunn Room.

The Community Office

This Community Office, located just off the Hall Foyer, will be available for local organisations to use and will have internet access.

Toilet Facilities

Facilities include a disabled toilet leading off from the Hall Foyer together with ladies and gents. Baby changing facilities are also available.

This room (3.2 x 5.5m) has its own access to the rear of the Parish Hall and a connecting door from the Community Shop. The room is light and airy and has a sink unit and power. It is hoped that this room will be used by a range of local organisations to provide benefits to the local residents of Bishops Nympton and its surrounding areas, for example chiropodists, doctor surgeries, housing associations etc.
