Weybridge Hall Given New Life

Below is the text from an Elmbridge Borough Council Press Release

Following a period of uncertainty about its future, Weybridge Hall has been given a fresh start. Elmbridge Borough Council, DC Leisure, Weybridge Society and Friends of Weybridge Hall have signed a two-year partnership agreement to secure the future of the Hall, an important local amenity in the heart of Weybridge.

Max Clifford has boosted the success of the Hall’s re-launch by agreeing to fund the redecoration of the Hall. This will provide a lighter, brighter space for hire by individuals, businesses and groups such as dance classes, children’s football classes and the Old Folks’ Club.

Mr Clifford said, “A lot of people in the local area get a lot of pleasure from the different activities running at the Hall. This is why I’m happy to fund the redecoration. It’s great news that the Council is supporting this important public facility. It is the right decision for the community.”

Jennifer Doyle, chairwoman of Friends of Weybridge Hall, said, “This is fantastic news. We were overwhelmed by the local support for the Hall and delighted that Max Clifford has given such a boost to its future. With the Partnership working together to improve usage of the Hall, we are confident that we have secured this vital amenity for the community. Now we have to show that we really want the Hall to stay open by using it!”

Cllr Jan Fuller, Portfolio Holder for Leisure and Cultural Services, said “I strongly believe that the Weybridge Hall Partnership will reinforce Weybridge Hall’s position as a social hub for the local community. It is great to see people coming together to improve their environment and take responsibility for such a remarkable building that has been at the heart of the community for many generations. Weybridge Hall is a fantastic local asset and is bound to remain so for many years to come with the support of the Weybridge Hall Partnership”.

Weybridge Hall offers a large indoor space with hardwood floor, excellent acoustics and great lighting. It is available for hire for private functions and public use.
