The following letter has been delivered to the Revd Martin Poole:
Church Hall, Exeter Street
The Prestonville Community Association fully supports the efforts of The Hall Get Involved group to purchase the Church Hall.
At our committee meeting on 17th January we passed a motion urging the PCC, in the event of THGI being unable to raise the £200,000 asking price by 31st January, to be willing to negotiate over the price. This is in consideration of the fact that THGI has achieved so much already in such a short space of time and that the PCC has been clear in the past that it supports the idea of community ownership of the hall.
I’m absolutely delighted that at today’s meeting of St Luke’s PCC they agreed to lower the asking price for the Hall to £150,000. A brilliant outcome that will be of benefit to everyone concerned.
