Hersham Village Hall and Hersham Centre Closure

Hersham Village Hall and Hersham Centre Closure

 

There has been some late and surprising news this evening about the Hersham Village Hall and Day Centre Closure!

We have an ongoing thread with live updates in our Facebook Group here :

https://www.facebook.com/groups/HershamHubCommunity/permalink/1155684904537911/

I’m sure this has already been done but just to cover all bases I’ve submitted an FOI request for full sight of the ‘Condition Report’ and subsequent safety recommendations from EBC.
 
As you can see below there is a 20 ‘working day’ lead time so looking like a month but rest assured we aren’t easily fobbed off.
 
“We acknowledge receipt of your request under the Freedom Of Information Act 2000, your question / comment has been submitted to the appropriate officer.
 
We will try to respond as soon as possible, however, in accordance with statutory requirements, you should receive a reply from us within 20 working days.”
Watch this space!

Esher Rugby Club

We had the following message first thing this morning from Anthony Quinn, Head of Community Relations, Esher Rugby Club

Dear Sirs, we are very sorry to read the situation regarding Hersham Village Hall.  We at Esher Rugby Club are embarked on a drive to become a centre of the community and as such are encouraging and actively looking to assist clubs, societies etc who may want to use our facilities.

In light of the Village Hall announcement we’d be delighted to assist in offering an alternative venue if so required.

Please feel free to contact me and I can point people in the right direction.

Many thanks Anthony Quinn – Head of Community Relations, Esher Rugby Club.

Information for users of Hersham Village Hall and Hersham Centre for the Community

As a result of a condition survey of both Hersham Village Hall and the adjoining Hersham Centre for the Community, Elmbridge Borough Council needs to take decisive action surrounding these facilities.

 

Hersham Village Hall

Effective immediately, Hersham Village Hall will close for the foreseeable future due to fire and safety concerns with the building. The Council  is assessing the implications of a condition survey and will bring forward plans to re-provide a facility as part of longer term plans for the site.

We apologise for the inconvenience this will cause but please be assured that we will do everything we can to find hirers suitable alternative facilities within the Borough.

    The village market will not be open on Friday. Somebody will be outside the centre to talk to customers as they arrive. We are really sorry.
