Our Village Hall caters for nearly everyone, with the WI, Parish Council and Village Hall Committee meeting monthly, to Dance classes, craft group, coffee morning youth club, football under 11’s, party’s receptions family get togethers etc, to find information for these you can visit our Groups & Events Page or we have information on the information board outside.

Annually we hold the Football and Cricket inter village match., Barford Festival, Christmas Fayre, Firework and Halloween Night, not to mention the Annual Cricket Match and the Barford Crafts event. With our many country walks, peace and tranquillity, huge open skies, not to mention our proximity to Wymondham, Hethersett and Barnham Broom, with their convenient shops and other attractions. The land is owned by the Mackintosh trust who gave it to the Villages on a 99-year-old lease with a pepper corn rent of half a crown a year, grants were obtained. Barford doesn't have streetlights, many pavements, and no Pub (at present), but it is absolutely full of lovely friendly people, busy enjoying life with their work, family and friends, or joining in the many clubs and groups and events, etc., that go on in the Village. We also have a beautifully Church, a Garage (service and sales), a small industrial estate, as well as many other businesses, such as the Barford Fishing Lakes, and Barford Van Hire. Our population of around 547 (2011 census) have a wide diversity of ages, incomes, and leisure pursuits. Barford is a wonderful place to live. Wramplingham, situated in the river valley of the Tiffey, is a beautiful little village with several historic and listed buildings. Being such a small community of around 100 people in 44 households has created a great community spirit. The annual village picnic, carol concert and other events are well attended. Wramplingham is also the site of the famous Wramplingham Mill, a beautiful old building sadly demolished in 1945. The parish church of St Peter and St Paul is one of Norfolk's characteristic round-tower flint churches.

How it works

The Hall has bar and kitchen facilities, and the floor was specially laid for dancing. We also have the use of a projector and screen for presentations, etc.

It's easy to get started creating your website. Knowing some of the basics will help.

What is a Content Management System?

A content management system is software that allows you to create and manage webpages easily by separating the creation of your content from the mechanics required to present it on the web.

In this site, the content is stored in a database. The look and feel are created by a template. Joomla! brings together the template and your content to create web pages.

Logging in

To login to your site use the user name and password that were created as part of the installation process. Once logged-in you will be able to create and edit articles and modify some settings.

Creating an article

Once you are logged-in, a new menu will be visible. To create a new article, click on the "Submit Article" link on that menu.

The new article interface gives you a lot of options, but all you need to do is add a title and put something in the content area. To make it easy to find, set the state to published.

You can edit an existing article by clicking on the edit icon (this only displays to users who have the right to edit).

Template, site settings, and modules

The look and feel of your site is controlled by a template. You can change the site name, background colour, highlights colour and more by editing the template settings. Click the "Template Settings" in the user menu.

The boxes around the main content of the site are called modules. You can modify modules on the current page by moving your cursor to the module and clicking the edit link. Always be sure to save and close any module you edit.

You can change some site settings such as the site name and description by clicking on the "Site Settings" link.

More advanced options for templates, site settings, modules, and more are available in the site administrator.

Site and Administrator

Your site actually has two separate sites. The site (also called the front end) is what visitors to your site will see. The administrator (also called the back end) is only used by people managing your site. You can access the administrator by clicking the "Site Administrator" link on the "User Menu" menu (visible once you login) or by adding /administrator to the end of your domain name. The same user name and password are used for both sites.

Learn more

There is much more to learn about how to use Joomla! to create the website you envision. You can learn much more at the Joomla! documentation site and on the Joomla! forums.

We are Fundraising for a new Playground

Barford and Wramplingham’s only community park at the village hall has become tired and outdated over the years. Several pieces have had to be removed due to health and safety. and the large central focus area needs more work on it than is financially viable.

It is time to have a revamp and replace the existing pieces and give the children a new, fun and safe place to play and have fun.

If you are interested in helping us fundraise you can contact the Village Hall, or if you wish to donate please do by using the button below.
