Save the Village Hall
Petition Background (Preamble):
Community Groups have used the Village Hall (ground floor) for decades, and the Shepherd's Bush Families Project uses the first floor to support families at risk. The Project has also suffered a cut in its grant from the Council.
A consultation document states: "Alternative accommodation will be identified for the Children’s Centre and users of the ground floor community hall will be provided with information on alternative sites for hire in the borough. However, with extensive space to be available over the Edward Woods and NDC Hub sites, there is not a strong business case to also retain 58 Bulwer Street for 3rd sector premises use."
Alternative spaces could be beyond reach for many residents who use the Village Hall. Dates and times are set and groups would have to find a slot in the timetable for much busier centres (called "hubs").
We believe services in the Village Hall would not survive the sale of the building.
