Closure of St Peter's Parish Hall
The decision to close the Hall was taken by the Parochial Church Council at their meeting on 20th February. Individual letters, which include the following paragraphs, have been sent to all hirers of the Hall. "As you have probably heard the Parish Hall requires large amounts of money to be spent on it now and in the very near future to bring it up to the necessary health and safety standards. These funds are not available, and the Parochial Church Council decided that it was not appropriate to try to raise the money because it was felt that the mission of the Church would be best served by a facility adjoining the church building. "The Parochial Church Council has become increasingly concerned that it would be failing in its 'Duty of Care' to users if it allowed the Hall to remain open. Having taken advice it has been decided with regret to close the Hall with effect from midnight on Wednesday 30th April 2003. This decision was only taken after consultation with the congregation, followed by careful consideration by the Parochial Church Council." The letter was signed by the Vicar, Churchwardens, the Hall Chairman and the Hall Treasurer
SAVE THE HALL
My name is WILLIAM RUSDELL of 'CHERRY CROFT', NORTH STREET, SHERINGHAM. NR26 8LW. Telephone 01263 821392 or Vodafone mobile 07780838733. I feel very strongly that those of us, who wish to keep the Parish Hall in Waterbank Road, should pledge a sum of money to buy it outright. The updating of the hall to European standards should realise a large portion of funding, from funding groups. Now, on Saturday 8th February, I made a pledge of 1,000.

All I would like from intrested persons is a small letter stating forenames and surnames, full address with post-code, telephone number and your pledge. On receiving your letters I will make a list and when a realistic figure is reached or near, I shall contact everyone to arrange a meeting.

Thank you for reading this.
Mr William D.A.Rusdell.
