Braishfield Church Room
Alongside All Saints Church, the Church Room has been completely refurbished to a very high standard and was officially opened by the Bishop of Winchester on All Saints Day 2009. The cost of the refurbishment was met, almost entirely, by the generosity of the villagers and those who have an affinity with Braishfield.
Attractively fitted, the building is heated using a ground-source heat pump, taking heat from under the bottom car park; we were very fortunate to receive grants from The Low Carbon Building Programme and the Community Sustainable Energy Programme, towards the cost of the heating system. The main room has a welcoming log fire, comfortable chairs and good lighting to suit various needs. Sixty people can very comfortably sit at long tables for a meal. Smaller groups have the space for sitting at table as well as a relaxing area round the fire. The excellent kitchen has a large cooker with extractor hood, a commercial dishwasher, a plate warmer and a refrigerator. Two hatches are available to help the unloading of food from outside as well as for serving into the main room. There are over 60 cups and saucers and dinner and pudding plates, as well as place settings of cutlery. The toilet area has coat hooks, two toilets, both for male and female, one of which is easy access.
