The Trustees would like to thank those of you who joined us at our online meeting on Monday July 6th . It is encouraging to hear that our current proposal to acquire the Ballgreen Hall to house a community museum and provide community space is gathering pace.
It was great to be able to offer the opportunity to members of the community to pose questions and offer their opinions and suggestions all of which are very important to CEL who organised and co-ordinated the meeting, as this input will be used in the preparation of their final assessment of the feasibility of the project.
Online consultation for Strathaven John Hastie Museum Trust proposals
The Strathaven John Hastie Museum Trust is continuing its consultation into exciting plans to bring its ‘Strathaven deserves its own museum’ initiative to fruition.
The Trust is currently working with South Lanarkshire Council to complete a community asset transfer of the former Ballgreen Hall, with plans to turn it into a modern museum and also to provide a community space for other groups to use. This is a complex process and as always the more community support it can demonstrate the better.
There are two ways you can become involved. The first is to follow the link in the flyer to the right at www.surveymonkey.co.uk/Ballgreen_Hall_Community_Survey and express your views on the plans. The second is to take part in a scheduled online consultation on Monday 6th July 2020 to see and hear what is proposed for our community.
