During lockdown we noticed some issues with the fabric of the hall. It was therefore necessary to have a building survey done before reopening. This survey identified that the building is unsafe and so our insurers required that it be closed and locked up. The issues that need to be addressed are huge, and there are ongoing discussions about the best way to proceed.
At the moment we are not in a position to indicate when the hall may be able to reopen (it will not be in the near future), but we do hope to have an answer soon. In the meantime we have been offering free use of the church to former users of the hall, although this has not been suitable for all.
