Please note that you’re welcome to consider to book the Hall for casual and one-off events from 19th July 2021. However with the risks from ongoing Covid infection throughout the country we’ve now a local rule that bookings must only be for a MAXIMUM of 50 people in the Hall and only ONE party booking will be allowed on any single day.
Please do not book any event if you are seeking to invite more that 50 people as this is not permitted until further notice.
To read the document that Langford Village Community Association has submitted to the East West Rail Consultation please click here. We are making the case for the London Road route to remain open to vehicles as well as pedestrians and cyclists. Our residents have indicated they most prefer a new road bridge being built alongside the existing road, for use when the level crossing is permanently closed because of increased rail services.
These results have previously appeared on the LVCA’s facebook page and were tweeted to all our twitter followers on the days that results were first announced. Please follow us on our social media as well as this website to keep fully up to date on our news for residents.
The East West Rail Company has already looked in some detail at the challenges of providing an alternative route for vehicles when, as seems likely, the London Road level crossing is closed because of safety linked to the new rail services to Milton Keynes and Cambridge.
We’ve extracted the pages of information from the Consultation Technical Report so that the details are easy to find. The pages can be viewed if you click here.

The East West Rail project has published details of 6 options that it is considering for the resolution of the issues at London Road level crossing in Bicester. Each option involves closing the existing level crossing because it says there are safety concerns linked to the crossing being closed for up to 50 minutes in each hour when the new rail services begin (probably in 2025).
The Hall will reopen from Thursday 3rd December for our regular user groups that wish to return and who’re permitted to run activities under the Covid-19 rules and restrictions. Please contact your group organiser if you’re unsure whether or not your activities are resuming or allowed.
In order to comply with the latest Covid-19 measures the Langford Village Community Hall is closed to all users from Thursday 5th November. We’d like to thank all our regular Hall hirers for their understanding and we’ll let everyone know here when reopening the Hall becomes possible again. LVCA.
