Community rallies to help the Old School Hall

The second Old School Hall open public meeting took place on 26th September. The meeting, called again by Sneinton Neighbourhood Forum was well attended.

It was great to have the Old School Hall Community Association represented this time by Gillian Dack who could not make the previous meeting date. Community group WIND, who take care of the Windmill Park which surrounds the building were able to provide useful context. STARA and users of the Hall from the Lindy Hop group and others made valuable contributions. Bea from the Renewal Trust facilitated sessions, along with Sneinton Alchemy's Steve and Tom from the Forum. Marc Petrucci represented Nottingham City Council.

The aim of this event was to

take the ideas from our previous event, and reach agreement on which of them to take forward. It was decided that a Working Group dedicated to saving the hall should be set up. This group will report back to all who attended the original meeting on 12th September. Detailed notes are in the document below.

The first meeting for this Working Group will be held on October 10th at 6:30pm, at the Sneinton Hermitage Community Centre
