Cash plea to save Salvation Army hall

PUBLISHED: 10:03 27 April 2008 | UPDATED: 08:56 13 July 2010

A fresh plea for funds has been made to meet the £1.3m cost of a new Salvation Army hall at Sheringham.

A shortfall of £80,000 could mean that a plan to replace the existing citadel on Cremer Street with a hall with a bigger capacity is in jeopardy.

A fresh plea for funds has been made to meet the £1.3m cost of a new Salvation Army hall at Sheringham.

A shortfall of £80,000 could mean that a plan to replace the existing citadel on Cremer Street with a hall with a bigger capacity is in jeopardy.

While the Salvation Army can afford to start work on a new hall of a similar size to the current one - which holds 180 people - the ever expanding population of the Sheringham corps means a gallery seating an extra 100 people is desperately needed.

Commanding officer Major Adrian Maddern said that in holiday times when the Salvation Army had visitors, and on special occasions, members of the regular population had to stay away because there was not enough space.

The project, which has been in the pipeline for five years, has already raised £750,000 from legacies, sales, charity shops income, donations from people in the town and other fundraising events. Work should start by the end of the year and take 40 weeks to complete.

To help the project, contact Adrian Maddern on 01263 822514 or e-mail ajmaddern@tiscali.co.uk.
