BRIDGWATER residents are being invited to have their say on the future of Trinity Hall.

Bridgwater Town Council has taken over management of the building from Sedgemoor District Council with a 125-year lease.

Town Council spokesman for properties, Cllr Leigh Redman said: “Bookings have dropped off and there is a need to spend money to complete a refurbishment.

“In recent years with more modern community rooms coming into use, including easily accessible, modern facilities such as the YMCA and Victoria Community Centre, use of halls such as Trinity has decreased.

“On Your Bike, a community charity currently based in Taunton, have secured funding to bring their project to Bridgwater and have expressed an interest in using Trinity Hall.

“Their key aim is to train and employ the socially underprivileged, ex-servicemen and long-term unemployed, to help them and other volunteers to recycle and sell bikes.”

Bridgwater Town Council is holding a consultation around the possibility of entering into an agreement with the community-based charity.

Town Councillors and representatives from On Your Bike will be at Trinity Hall between 3pm and 5pm on Tuesday, June 19, and between 5pm and 7pm on Tuesday, June 26.

If you cannot make the meetings email your questions or comments to Cllr Leigh Redman by email or you can write to him - care of the Town Council office.
