“The Friends of Bank Hall” is the new Group that is taking over from the Bank Hall Action Group. This became necessary because the objects of the Action Group were confined to saving the Hall and its grounds. The Objects of The Friends are entirely different as they will be involved with operating the public areas of the Hall, The Potting Sheds, opening the Grounds to the public and running courses etc. They are also seeking registration as a Charity in their own right.
Like the Action Group they will be affiliated to The Heritage Trust for the North West who will own the site under a long leasing arrangement.
Both groups will, however, operate side by side until the 31st March 2013 unless it is decided to close down the Action Group before that date.
From the 1st January The Friends Group have taken over opening the Grounds to the Public and from the 1st April 2012 membership will be of “The Friends of Bank Hall” but that membership will automatically include membership of the Bank Hall Action Group.
Membership is open to any member of the public who wishes to be involved in this exciting project. We invite you to become a member – Membership is just £5 per annum. If you wish to join our group, please go to the Application Form via this link. (We are also now registered with Gift Aid. If you are a UK Taxpayer we would be very grateful if you could fill in our Gift Aid Form.
