Hope For Weybridge Hall

Save Weybridge Hall
Weybridge Hall was thrown a lifeline when Elmbridge Borough Council met with concerned local representatives to discuss its future on 14 April.
The Council has agreed to hold a public consultation into the future of the Hall at the start of the summer. Interested parties will be invited to attend once a timetable has been finalised. A number of different options for the Hall will be discussed, including the community’s offer to run the Hall.
In the meantime, the Council has assured hirers and users of the Hall that it is business as usual for the Hall and bookings will continue to be taken.
Local public relations guru and supporter of the Hall, Max Clifford, says “this is good news for the Hall. I’ve spoken to so many people from different groups using the Hall who are worried that they may be forced to move out. With nowhere else in the local area offering the type of facilities that are unique to the Hall, it’s reassuring for them to know we’re moving in the right direction of a brighter future”.

Comments From Some Of The Save Weybridge Hall Petitioners

 
"This is a well used, well appreciated facility which no caring council would take away from the local people. Born in Weybridge I have had cause to use the hall many, many times. If there is a justifiable reason for the councils action then the respect that people deserve demands that they be told what is intended for the hall. "
Dianne Grant on Mar 14, 2011
 
"This is a fabulous building that provides the facility for many local residents to get together for a number of activities. It is a valuable asset to the Elmbridge community that should be preserved and supported. "
Ann South on Mar 14, 2011
 
"Weybridge needs a hall, and with a little sensible thinking the existing hall could pay it's way!."
Gill Fellows on Mar 11, 2011
 
"This Hall is a fabulous asset for the community and should be retained for its use ."
Pauline Wood on Mar 11, 2011
 
"Here we go again - can afford £450,000 to enhance Walton High Street (will this bring shoppers into the High Street I doubt it) but getting rid of beautiful historic old buildings that are still regularly used, local libraries etc (unless volunteers step in!) is OK. I think this council have lost the plot..."
June Byrne on Mar 11, 2011
 
"The hall serves a vital role in the community! It is a large hall with good facilities and , unusually, is central to the town."
Debbie Groves on Mar 9, 2011
 
"I support this campaign to keep the very old and very useful Weybridge Hall. It should be kept for use by our Community for their very important activities for all ages, young and old, to enjoy. "
Mary Edward on Mar 9, 2011
