Shaftsbury hall update - July 2014

Shaftsbury Hall update image

The slight hiccough in progress (when the hall was occupied by squatters) has now been overcome and the majority of the detailed surveys and design drawings will soon be available for review and discussion to a wider audience, and submitted to LBH for consideration and hopefully, official approval.

With the detailed drawings comes the ability to better define exactly how much money NLS will need to raise in order to complete the proposed refurbishment programme. It is hoped that with the interest and support that has currently been shown from local residents and community groups, the hall project may be able to attract significant funding from the BIG Lottery and a grant application is currently being prepared.

Any local community or residents groups who may see the hall as a potential venue for future events are asked to contact NLS via to express their interest, please. (We will not hold you to any commitment but the more groups we might attract means the more likely we are to gain an interest from BIG Lottery.)
