2016 AGM PRESENTATIONS
The Friends of Meersbrook Hall, in partnership with Heeley Development Trust, has recently undertaken the occupancy of Meersbrook Hall, following the departure from the site of Sheffield City Council. The Hall was home to the Ruskin Collection from 1890 to 1953. From 1953, the Hall served as the Council's Parks and Countryside offices. The Friends group formed in response to fears that the Council planned to sell the Hall to private developers. The Friends are now preparing a bid to the Heritage Lottery Fund to protect the fabric of the building, create community facilities and work spaces, and most importantly, celebrate the rich heritage of the Hall.
If you would like to be informed of their progress, you can join the Friends of Meersbrook Hall here (it's free, and they promise not to inundate you with emails). Becoming a Friend also helps them to demonstrate to potential funders the breadth of support there is for the project.
