Village hall potted history

On the 21st of May 1976 the village hall was officially opened by Robert (Bob) Rowland Head Forester on the Beaulieu Estate.

Of course the story doesn’t start there but a few years earlier when the W.I (Women’s Institute) hut was deemed to be very long in the tooth and the wooden building was gently rotting away. It was definitely living on borrowed time. Dr. Don Anson, a scientist and New Zealander who had built his own reinforced concrete house in Moonhills Lane got together a committee to raise money and plan a decent community building worthy of the village. Beaulieu Village Hall Trust was registered with the Charity Commission in May 1974. The land on which the Village Hall was built was donated by the Beaulieu Estate

Why is there a statue of a Benedictine monk in the Village Hall?

In a corner of the entrance foyer of Beaulieu Village Hall there is a statue that you might expect to see in the local church but not in a local community centre. It is in fact Dom Perignon and it was presented to the people of Beaulieu by the people of Hautvillers, France in 1986 when the villages became twinned. Hautvillers claim to fame is that it is in the heart of the champagne region of France and was the birthplace of champagne. Dom Perignon (1638 – 1715) was the cellar master at the Benedictine abbey in Hautvillers and he is credited with developing the techniques of secondary fermentation in strong corked bottles to give the rise to the most widely recognised type of wine in the world – champagne.
