About Friends of Stretford Public Hall
Friends of Stretford Public Hall was formed in 2015 to take on the ownership and running of Stretford Public Hall for the benefit of the community. It is a charitable community benefit society that is democratically run by its members on a one-member one-vote basis.
Friends of Stretford Public Hall will run the Hall in a sustainable way, but as a charitable organisation owned by the community, it will always use any profits to ensure the Hall continues to act as a wonderful building for the community in Stretford.
Also our organisation’s rules mean that members can never sell the Hall and make a personal gain. If we did have to close or sell the Hall, then we are required to transfer it to a similar charitable body to ensure the Hall continues to be run for the community rather than for private or commercial interests.
Friends of Stretford Public Hall is run by a Board of Directors, elected each year by our members.
For Stretford Public Hall to be a unique and thriving multi-purpose venue at the heart of Stretford owned and run by the local community.
As guardians of Stretford Public Hall, we will restore and protect this historic landmark enhancing opportunities for regeneration. Through ongoing engagement with the local community, we will host a wide range of activities that meet Stretford’s needs. In partnership, we will help to improve the lives of residents by providing opportunities for employment and involvement as well as access to arts, culture, heritage, and a range of well-being services.
