Costs far exceeded income and it does not make financial sense to sink money into an unused asset.
It is a lovely hall and I hope it will retain its character.
There is a silver lining..... I will be moving a motion at the May council meeting that "funds from the proceeds of the sale will only be used for community infrastructure projects" - so at least the value of our community assets is retained. Maybe the money will be used to improve another hall, or a sporting facility - who knows!
Sale of Rowella Hall deferred due to a sudden resurgence of interest from the community.
We’re looking forward to great things.
