After several safety checks and sign off from the Energy Performance Certificate (after a last minute scramble for some energy efficient light bulbs!) Stratford District Council were able to complete the lease of the Greig Hall to Alcester Town Council. This was the culmination of years of work to get the Hall back into the hands of the people of Alcester.
The Greig Working Group has been working hard over the past year to pull together volunteers from all skills and backgrounds – now that we have the keys, our first step will be to get inside and prioritise the work that needs to be done. We then hope to open the Hall in stages, all the while raising funds for the rest of the repairs until the Hall is the community hub at the heart of Alcester that it used to be.
Our amazing Friends of the Greig Hall have raised a whopping £75,000 so far with their shop, funds we can use for the first stages of the refurbishment. Don’t forget to visit them in their current home at Hopkins Precinct!
Follow us on social media and check back here for regular updates once we know more. If you’d like to help in any capacity, fill in the form on our volunteer page, and we’ll be in touch.
