Find out about Barton, a designated hamlet just south of Bidford. Through our Barton Village Fund, we've raised over £50,000 for charities, as well as organising numerous social events.

The Barton Village Fund

A small but mighty village. Despite having a population of just 80 or so, for the past decade Barton residents have donated a magnificent £50,000 to local charities.

What started as a “pub conversation” some 12 years ago, has now developed into a well-oiled charity fundraising machine. Initially proposed to raise money for the local Macmillan Nursing team who had treated a much-loved village resident, the ‘Barton Village Fund’ was born and the hard work began. Over the years the volunteers have organised a range of events…………

So – we have a “committee” of 6, and naturally the committee calls upon villagers and friends of the village to support all events – either in terms of ideas, bodies, donations, or attending and enjoying events.

The committee are Charles Husbands (Chair), Ian Barnes (Treasurer), Kay Atkins (Secretary), Shaun Coward, Paul Fleming and Keith Goodchild.

BVF 100 Club

The Barton Village Fund 100 Club is a great way to support us, while having a bit of a flutter!

£24 buys you one membership number (for a year) which enters you into the monthly draw. Over the year, the prizes will total more than 48% of the annual income. All remaining funds go to the BVF fund to help fund future village events, support our nominated charities and for the betterment of Barton.

From this – during the summer of 2020 - we have been able to make a further £1000 donation to Acorns Children’s Hospice.
Any queries, please contact Charles Husbands (01789 772701 or or Keith (01789 772229,
