In 1983 Upper Broughton Parish Council decided to  purchase the Village Hall from the Church. It was in the most appalling condition and Parish Councillor George Harris agreed to form a Village Hall Committee to come up with ideas for raising money to try and improve the Hall. Chris Reeves suggested an exhibition of work by local artists might be a good fund-raising event. George Harris liked this idea and plans were made for a three day exhibition during the August bank holiday of 1983. Rushcliffe Community Arts Department donated £25 as prize money in the hope of attracting artists. This money was split into three prizes of £8 each with the spare £1 designated to help with expenses. Those were the days!

Tap & Run reopens.

 

The Tap & Run pub in Upper Broughton is open again, after more than a year since the devastating fire of June 2022.
It's good the see the pub reopen just in time for summer and from what we understand bookings are filling up quickly.
Owned by cricketers Harry Gurney & Stuart Broad. It may well have the strap line the second innings but we can't help thinking The Ashes might have been more apposite…

This site is looking for a new webmaster…

If there is anyone out there who wants to take on the task let me know. Also the current hosts are looking to shut down their supposrt for these older Plone based sits so all three Upper Broughton sites may well go offline soon. The UBPC has been debating the matter and new proposals are in for review but… SC

Village Hall Notice board & Railings

The new notice board and railings have been installed in front of the Village Hall in Upper Broughton following an accident last year. Even though the works took longer than expected the results are a great improvement and complete the repairs. The adjacent houses have also been restored following the accident in which a cattle truck lost control on the A606.

Upper Broughton Tennis Club (UBYSC)

Spring Tennis… it's nothing like Monkey Tennis.

The Upper Broughton Tennis Club or UBYSC (Upper Broughton Youth & Social Club) has been in constant use since the early 1950's. Now in the 2020's the playing surface, lighting, club house and organisation have kept pace with modern expectations.

Any day of the week, any time of the year and now well into the evenings with the assistance of flood lighting there is seemingly always a game being played. A coaching session being run, singles, doubles, tournaments, desperate lobs being hoist, grudge matches to be settled, serves that were definitely IN, calls that were so clearly OUT.

The club is a great facility to have in such a small community and should be supported by all of us.
