Your Corner House needs you!

It’s hard to believe it, but it’s now nearly three years since the new charity was formed to manage and look after The Corner House and the Memorial Hall on behalf of everyone in town.  In that time, the trustee group has not only fulfilled these obligations on a day-to-day basis, but has also worked hard on developing plans that will make sure that these much-loved buildings will be fit for use well into the future.

These plans include improving accessibility to and inside The Corner House;  reducing the buildings’ carbon footprint;  making The Corner House warmer and more welcoming;  and last (but no means least) installing some new loos in The Corner House too.

The trustees are now working on getting planning approval for all of this, which involves ensuring that we achieve the right balance between heritage and usability.  And that’s not easy – which is why we need at least another three people to join the trustee group to help drive this important project forward.  To put it simply, there’s too much involved for the current group to handle on their own.  The Corner House and the Memorial Hall are at the heart of our community, and we need your help to keep them there.

We are not insisting on people having a technical background, or anything like that – just an appreciation of how important these buildings are to us all.  And, with the Secretary due to retire later this year, we will need someone who can take over that important role for us.

It will be an exciting time once we can begin the work that we feel is essential to make The Corner House an even better community hub for the future.  Please help us to achieve that by joining the trustees.  Contact us at charlburycornerhouse@outlook.com as a first step, or leave us a note in the mailbox in The Corner House foyer.
