Leverstock Green Village Association CIO
Leverstock Green Village Association is a voluntary group and charity which seeks to promote and protect the interests of residents and to provide facilities in the interests of social welfare for recreation and leisure time. It also supervises the maintenance and management of the Village Hall in the furtherance of these aims.
Just a short walk from open countryside, Leverstock Green is a historic and pretty English village on the eastern edge of Hemel Hempstead. With its village green, local shops, schools, library, clubs, church and various other amenities, it is a popular place to live for all ages. The village has excellent transport links and is conveniently located for easy access to the M1 (Junction 8) and M25 (Junction 20 or 21).
Frequent train services run from Hemel Hempstead and nearby St Albans stations. Regular bus services serve Hemel Hempstead, St Albans, Watford, Rickmansworth, Stevenage and Welwyn Garden City.
From the town centre National Express provides services to Luton, Heathrow and Gatwick Airports as well as other towns and cities in the Home Counties.
The Village Hall
We benefit from having one of the finest Village Halls / Community Centres in Dacorum with a main hall and two smaller rooms, also two kitchens and a bar. All are very well used for a variety of purposes ranging from dance classes to amateur dramatic productions and are available for hire by the hour on a ‘one off’, weekly or monthly basis at very competitive rates. Full details can be found by clicking on Hall Hire above.
Many of the clubs and organisations that use the hall would welcome new members, details of most of these can be found by clicking on Hall Hire above then on Activities.
The Buglass Award
The Fred Buglass Award was instigated in 2002 using funds from the Fred Buglass Legacy. Fred lived in Leverstock Green for 45 years until his death in 1998 at the age of 93. He was responsible for the formation of LGVA in 1962 and served as Chairman and Life President of the Association. He was instrumental in the bulding of the Village Hall and was awarded the British Empire Medal in 1986 for services to the community. Fred was largely responsible for establishing the strong village identity and pleasant environment which we enjoy today. He was deservedly known as ‘Mr Leverstock Green’.
Individuals who are eligible for the award must either live or work in Leverstock Green. They can be nominated for making a major contribution to the life of the village community, for promoting the identity of Leverstock Green or making a major contribution towards conserving or improving the environment of the village.
The award was initially presented annually although there are some years with no presentation due to a lack of nominations.
